Betta fish dancing for each other. I don't get around to respond to all/most comments, but I'll try to answer what I can here. This is a male and female mating pair taken from a neglectful owner who purchased about 50 betta fish with the intent to breed them for profit and could not care for them. They were kept in tiny plastic containers which caused them a great deal of stress. Once they got in my tank, they did wonderfully. The male is flaring to show his interest in the female, and soon they were taken to a mating tank where he built a little bubble nest and they had their fun. I got the tank from PetsMart or PetCo, can't remember, and it came with a divider. I no longer have fish (this was filmed years ago). If you have problems with your fish, I recommend Googling for answers. One plant is real, the others are soft and gentle plastic, and his fins were damaged before I got him. Both fish were imported from Asia via mail. The filter was gentle enough to not bother either fish and had no current, and in fact they really seemed to enjoy it. I fed them frozen bloodworms and gave dried brine shrimp as treats, and sometimes even regular tropical fish food as treats, too.
