Here are some pictures of my bettas! I have five but two are not shown due to battling fin rot. These guys live in a five gallon divided onto four separate tanks. I put Orion next to his sister and they have started to flirt and Orion actually started to make a nest after not making any for two years! I am excited for him. Now that I have shown you mine, show me yours!! :D

This is a somewhat blurry picture of my Miyamoto. He may not be as pretty as yours, but I love him to pieces.

He looks great! I personally love bettas. They are like potato chips, I can't just have one. :-) Thanks for sharing!

This is Captain Peacock. Excuse the highlight effect - I've been playing with Picasa. I saw him at Aquarium World and thought he was very beautiful, so I brought him home with me.

*edit* Would he be called a tricolor butterfly? I know he's tricolor, but not sure about the butterfly part.

Very nice...
He sure is tri-colored alright....
The butterfly trait refers to the opaque (white) tips of the fins that form a distinct band of opaque finnage beyond the colored finnage.

Jisatsuguy, your daughter's bettas look great! They look like happy and healthy bettas! I need to update this post cause I have different bettas now and they look great. I have actually been researching on how to build my own betta setup, like the one in this picture: LINK (http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://i87.photobucket.com/albums/k150/divyb/ff.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.fish-keeper.net/worldofbettas/index.php%3Fshowtopic%3D1423&usg=__qz6YYGxTKheyK6NYhrVPW44j9Zo=&h=600&w=800&sz=127&hl=en&start=6&sig2=_wZCqlPpcIH4VykucD3XoQ&um=1&itbs=1&tbnid=vyM6OYcEEiYROM:&tbnh=107&tbnw=143&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dbetta%2Bdivided%2Btank%26hl%3Den%26sa fe%3Doff%26rlz%3D1B3GGGL_enUS322US322%26sa%3DN%26u m%3D1&ei=Itx8S8ySK4S0tgerqcy7BA)

Hopefully one day I can get my bettas a nice penthouse setup like this one. Will post new pictures of my bettas soon! :-)

I have a 20g long devided with glass partitions similar to that. It gives me 4 spaces of 5 gal each. The glass partitions cost me $5 each and it took me about an hour to silicone them in place. Rather than drill a bunch of holes and install a complex filter system I just added small HOBs on each section.
