What I love about Bettas is not only their colors but their personalities as well! These fish love to be nosey and see what's going on in the room they are in. Mine always followed my finger around and would occasionally "flare up" at me, which is cute but also a sign of stress and aggression!
For the most part my betta had his happy bubble nest filling the top of one side of his tank. Since male bettas take care of the eggs by placing them inside a bubble nest, a happy betta is one with a nest - even if no female or babies are present!
Breeding this species is definitely a chore all in itself as these guys are naturally aggressive and don't get along well. Not even the females like one another which is why it is always recommended you have an odd number of females in the tank - 1, 3, 5 etc.
