    I had fish when I was in high school. Did fine with my goldfish, but I fought tail rot with my beautiful betta. I felt terrible about how it would grow back and then start to rot repeatedly, so after he died, I never got a second one. Embarrassing admitting this... I'm sure someone will tell me about some kind of simple cure. I remember adding salt to the water.

    This was my pretty red HM (bred by Victoria of BettySplendens) I lost shortly after we moved. Not sure what happened exactly since the water quality tested fine and all the other fish in the tank with him were fine, but I found him floating. RIP my pretty red boy:




    So the only bettas I have right now are my colony of Betta simplex in my 46gal. I love them, though! Betta simplex are mouthbrooders and a species that can be kept together in community tanks, unlike the more common B. splendens. The males are just fantastically gorgeous...




    Here's a video I caught of 2 of my males flaring at each other:

    This first guy pictured is Ebo (short for Ebony). He was seriously the most beautiful, sexy fish I have ever owned. He passed away over spring break about a month ago. I had him for almost 2 years, and he was big when I bought him, so I think he just lived to the end of his days.



    I just picked up this boy today; named him Nila, which is the Hindi word for "blue". He was still acclimating to the water of his new tank when I took these pics, so please don't mind the giant plastic crease across his body.
