Hi all, newbie
Hi all, been meaning to join a fish forum for a while so here i am. iv been keeping tropicals for around 2 years now. iv only got a 50l tank as thats all the wife will allow (for now) :).

in the tank iv got a red male fighter, 2 breeding corydoras and 2 fry, 4 adult guppies and around 10 fry and 2 shrimp. gonna have to get rid of a few fry when they get bigger as the tank will be slightly overstocked.

thanks, im terrible with fish names, this was advertised as a siamese fighting fish but after reading a few articles i think its real name is a betta?? heres a couple of pics of him anyway

Oh - ha ha. I should have realized that but wasn't thinking on those lines.

Yup - that's a betta. They're pretty addicting. I only wanted one and now I'm up to 6.

lol, they are really nice fish. iv had 3 of them now. This fish took a right battering when i put him in. I thought the betta i already had was a female, had the white protrusion on the bottom. It ended up tearing the new addition to bits. He recovered well though and i passed on the offender to a friend who had a bigger tank. how do you keep your bettas? are they all seperate? id like to add a female for company but im a bit put off after that incident

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Very pretty betta! Male bettas should not be housed with other bettas, male or female. They do not play nice with their own kind.
