    He is a beauty. I love Betta splendens but only have a large community tank. I know they prefer to be kept on their own. I do keep Betta pugnax which is bigger but not very colorful.

    Beautiful red betta!! I've had many bettas in my time, and I always enjoyed their personalities immensely...they have a much more interactive type of behavior as opposed to goldfish which always appear to just swim around aimlessly You have a ton of tanks too!! Holy cow, that must be one heck of a tank maintenence job!
