Photo Hunt :: Bubbles

Come and join


These are my betta fish (a.k.a. Siamese fighting fish). I actually have four of but I'm just featuring two for this theme. Betta fish are small and colorful freshwater fish. They come in different colors. I have two red, one blue and one multi-colored betta fish. I guess they are called fighting fish because they are very territorial. They have a tendency to fight until the death if placed together in one fish tank. Sadly some people use these lovely fish for fish fight betting games.

I have a rectangular shaped fish tank with glass dividers so every betta fish has its own individual space to avoid fighting. When they come face to face with one another, they flare their gills and their flowing fins appear larger. They always try to attack one another. Good thing the glass dividers protect them from causing injury on one another

Betta fish are very easy to take care of. They don't need special apparatus like an air pump (for oxygen) unlike other types of fish.

My betta fish tank is always covered with these little bubbles.

They look cute but I'm not really a fish person ... I find them fascinating though.

The bubbles look all sparkly, too.

Are they really easy to care for? I've always been afraid I couldn't keep them alive very long.

What a creative contribution - typically you Rachel :-)

There's something therapeutic about looking at fishes. I was at a shop that sells fishes as pets and all stuff related to that, and saw many beautiful fishes.

Wanted to stop by again and thank you for visiting Happy Snappy and celebrating our first year with us! :)

You've got some gorgeous fishies there! You know, I had never heard of fish fights. Poor fish. People can be so mean.

i too had the chance to have an aquarium but never had the chance to buy those fighting fish. i wonder if you can actually hold them.

I have no luck having fish as my pet. Hehehhe, tamad mag linis ng aquarium, I had one before and gave it up.

The fishes are so colorful.

My son used to have an aquarium; fish was his first pet, but his first fish didn't last long. Perhaps, when he's big enough to take care of his fish pets, then we'll buy a bigger aquarium for him, and we'll consider buying betta fish, too.

Eds said...

Hi PLurkbuddy!

We have one fighting fish too :) It's Peaches' first live pet.

She enjoys feeding fishy and begs her Dad to clean the small aquarium when the water gets dirty :)

Carver said...

That's a great shot. Good that you can have dividers so they don't fight.
