    We just got our two year old a Beta. His name is Franklin the Fish. She loves him to death. I think the average Beta lives between 2-4 years ... so they are not a bad fish to go for.
    I remember he had some kind of plant on top of the bowl, the fish could eat it when it got hungry.

    Pretty cool.

    The advise you got was actually good about the feeding schedule. Feeding them more often will end up lowering the water quality and will stress the fish more than the lack of food will.

    I used to have a hatchery in my basement full of these guys. It is a rewarding hobby

    Depends how long you want them to live should depend on what names you give them. Don`t name them after football players. Might be a bad omen.

    One got sucked down to the bottom of the filter, so that meant 3 as of this morning. Now i see another doing the backstroke. I can't figure out what we're doing wrong.

    Re: The 4 newest members of the family..Still deciding on names

    We were down to 3, as one met his demise. Then i look the other day, and there are now only 2. I honest to god do not know what happened to the 3rd one. The manual says feed them every 3 days for the first month. We fed them wed. and today. My wife said 2 of them were nipping at the 3rd. We've had the cover open, but i really don't think one of them jumped out of the tank, and we don't fill it to the top because of the filter.

    My wife names all her pets (rabbits are Jane, Spot, Brownie, Nosey, Junior, Creampuff, Mama, Bunny Boy, Gucci Mom, Gucci Boy, Tuxedo, Occhio, Tiny, Chip, Speckles, Baby Speck, Pal and I'm missing some. The guinea pigs are Big Mom, Babe, Wilbur, Furry, Lil Girl, Phantom. Turtles are Quasimodo and Big Lady...too many frogs to name. I suggest the following for your fish:

    Sushi

    Goldie

    Babalooey (I've always liked that name for a pet since my friend named the family cat Babalooey)
