Sharky has sooo many colors, blue,green,yellow,and a little red.I'm also planning to buy more fishies.I had three but 2 of them died.:(.Girls have short fins and males have long ones.Also I play with Sharky I just put my hand in the water and she just rests in my hand but don't do it too hard or you'll scare your pet.And put my hand but opened and she passases through my fingers.But you have to have a big bowl to do that.

Jocelyn, OR | (none)
You're betta fish is just fine. when i fisrt got swimmer he didn't eat for a bout a week, but after that he was just fine.

John F, MI | (none)
Jenna, MB... Your Betta fish will be okay. :) Don't worry too much. Bettas like a water temperature of about 78 degrees fahrnheit and really clean water. If you fish is in a bowl, you must change at least half of the water every other day with fresh chlorine free water that is the same temperature as the water in your bowl. Sometimes when you get a new Betta, they kind of stress out. They usually won't eat for a day or two as they get used to their new home. When you feed them, watch them for at least five minutes. Any food that they did not eat must be removed from the bowl/aquarium. As for lifespan, a well cared for Betta should live a happy life of over two years!

Joan, MI- It means your fish is about to die. Marty, KY- Two BOY fish can't be in the same tank. Unless they roll like that. Which they don't. Ashley, NY- The pretty ones you buy in the stores are male. The ugly, small ones are female. Madison, NV- See above. Silvia, CA- Fish don't sleep, they rest. Sharks do the same things, if they are the type that don't need to swim all the time. Rob, OH- Yes, but not aggressive fish, or tropical fish with large fins. Janae, OH- Your male betta is showing signs of aggression. They puff their fins out to intimidate their opponents (other male bettas). Matt, AB- There are many books and websites all about caring for yor type of fish. Emmily, CA- Currently, my sister and I are in the process of teacher her two male bettas tricks. There are many tricks you can teach your fish. Currently, we are in the first stage (object to food recognition), where we have a piece of string, and dip it into the water. When the betta bites the string, we give it a small pellet of food. Our overall goal is to hook up the string to a bell, so that when the fish rings the bell, it gets food. It takes a lot of time and patience to train a fish. go slowly and read some websites with your parent. Well, I hope I've helped some of you. You can fins a lot of info on the web or your library. Pretty cool I know all this, although we got our bettas yesterday, no? ~Siena

Annie, TX | (none)
Fish swim calmly so you can cool down. Fish come in all shapes and sizes. When your fish is white and turning red get medicine for you to put in the water or ask a local vet what else to do. If it came red it is ok.

breanne, FL | (none)
you feed fish, fish food and you can find it at your local pet store!!!

Emily, ON | (none)
Fish are beautiful creatures. They glide through the water so smothly, with their silvery or mulyi-coloured scakes fkashing. They dart and twist and turn so suddenly, they look just like they've disappeared. It seems a shame to keep them cooped up in a smal tank. People say 'Oh, it's ok. Fish can only remember for about 5 seconds, so they won't remember being trapped.' Not true. Fish DO remember things.

gabby, CA | (none)

Kiera, ID | (none)
to tell if your fish is a boy or a girl, u usually look at the color or the fins.for example:male beta have large fins, females have short.
