Post 1-Reading for Information

Betta Fish Information
Betta Fish are also called Siamese Fighting Fish. The name Betta is pronounced as the Greek letter beta, and because of this, the name is often misspelled in American English, with one t instead of two. The name is unrelated to the Greek letter and originates from the Thai phrase 'ikan bettah'. In Thailand, betta fish are known as pla-kad. Betta Fish live in freshwater. Betta fish are one of the most popular aquarium fish. This is mainly because of their appearance - certainly not because they are easy to keep in an aquarium. Betta Fish originate from the Mekong basin in Southeast Asia.

Betta fish are known to "puff-out" when aggravated. When this happens their gills and fins puff out to appear more impressive. They do it to either intimidate rival males or to impress females during courtship.
One interesting aspect of Betta fish is their extremely well-developed eyesight. Betta fish will swim to the surface when they see your hand over the tank as you feed them.

I’m interested to find some information about Betta fish because I have two Betta fish in my room. I used to call them Bluey and Dora. Bluey is the male one and he is blue in colour while Dora is female and she is red in colour. I don’t really know about Betta fish, that’s why I search the information about this type of fish in order to make my Betta fish in a good condition. Now I know Betta fish are easy to keep compared to another fish. No wonder the owner of the Fish Shop suggested me to buy Betta fish. Besides that, Betta fish are also very beautiful and I love their colours. With all the information that I get from the website, I wish I can take a good care of my Bluey and Dora =)... Here, I also would like to suggest for those who are interested to find or get any information about Betta fish, you can go this website, http;//www.bettafish.com/ . You also can get your own Betta fish in any fish shop.
