    Betta's breath atomosphere, hence thier classifiction as labyrinth fishes (also know as Anabantids) along with Gouramis as well as the climbing perch.
    Labyrinths are so called because they are equipped with an auxiliary sponge-like breathing chamber just above the gills. This chamber, or labyrinth, lets the fishes breathe atmospheric air, therefore allowing them to survive in oxygen-deficient habitats and "crawl" out of the water in search of better environments.
    Not all of them crawl.

    they say that the betta eat the roots of the plant wich is true. but, my 3 only live 3 months. But then i got a bottle of betta food and fed him every other day and ive had him for almost 3 years. just thought you might want to know this

    thanks

    Not to start an arguement but, bettas don't eat plant roots, Mike. Bettas are strictly carnivorous fish, therefore they can't and won't eat plant roots. Giving a betta a plant to eat is like giving a VFT a leaf to eat. I'm not suprised that your three bettas didn't live but for three months with you feeding them roots.

    But thanks for telling everybody that. I hope people will take heed to your post about your fish dieing because you believed everyone else and fed them roots. Maybe now people will get the point that the bottom line is: don't make your bettas eat roots!

    Talking

    Go to www.bettaaddicts.com and see what I am talking about. The members are signing a proposal against the Lily vase. This is the worst set up for a Betta. They die in 3 months. I own 3 and they live peacefully in their 3 gallon vases. Each one has a lamp and also a nice set-up. They like scenery. They are totally carnivorous. The best things to feed them is pellets and for treats I have bloodworms and shrimp. They love live food.

    Go and check up the proposal and sign it if you have a betta and want the best for them [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
