Betta fish and bamboo plants are both very attractive. Pamela N Red tells how to successfully combine the two in a lovely environment.
Can someone tell me. If the bamboo isn't bamboo, what is it? I love this idea. I didn't like the lily plant as I didn't think it did the fish too good. I might try this. I feel so sorry for all the betta's I see. The worst case was at a flea market where they were in tiny triangular bags, no more than 2 inches big. Some had to lie on their sides as there wasn't enough water for them even to swim. In England the RSPCA would confiscate them all.
I bought my little guy because he was the only one on the shelf that wasnt blue or red. He is a gold/cream color and his tail/fins shimmer a pale iridescent blue and have a itty bitty red splash. I have been giving him the bio gold food- and he just spits it back out. He loves the little shrimpies though as long as I crush them up real tiny. I have a type of betta food that is flakes that I give him sometimes for variety. Right now he is in a smaller vase/bowl than I would like, but I am shopping for larger living quarters for him. He is real active and likes to "show off" If you get close to the bowl he will sit in front of you and look back at you and twitch his fins (not "flaring" thought) kinda like to tell you "hello.... feed me!" On the bamboo, I have been reading around and it should work without hurting the fish. I think that a betta would go well with the "bamboo" they have the same regional "flare" (cant think of any other way to describe it) I may try it as soon as I convince myself to purchase some long pieces of the bamboo.(expensive stuff here)
