Betta Success free pdf THE Betta, scientifically Betta splendens, aka the Siamese Fighting Fish, is likely only second to the common goldfish as the most commonly kept pet-fish- and rightly so. Bettas are hardwired tough, easily able to survive being abruptly moved, having a wide range of tolerance for variable water quality, a ready acceptance of foods, and innate resistance to most diseases. Despite these positive human-use traits, way too many Betta splendens meet their fate unduly and too soon. What they do need is simple: steadily warm (tropical) system conditions with either provision of simple filtration, or steady change out of water with new that is suitable- and adequate nutrition. In this small book the simple requirements of this species captive care will be revealed in a pleasing manner- as it is my express desire that you too become a successful Betta keeper.

About Robert Fenner

The diversity of life has always fascinated me- but the systematics of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians was blown away by the expansiveness and degree of unknown of the fishes. Few people had "companion animals" overseas, but many friends had bowls and aquariums with goldfish, guppies and other tropicals. I was born in Rhode Island, the smallest State of the U.S. but grew up in the orient as my father was career military. We had very few jobs "on base" for the "dependents" but I was fortunate to secure employment at a fish store that was associated with a restaurant in downtown Sasebo. Other vainglorious work overseas includes two years working for a Betta culture business, collecting and processing marines in Manila. Back to the U.S. in the late sixties I stuck to the trade as a retail clerk, a livestock wholesale worker (for Pratt's in San Diego), and eventually formed an aquarium service business with a school friend. This business cycled larger and smaller, and supported me all through college and beyond. It eventually became an employee-owned corporation with aquaristic retail outlets, fabrication (principally large acrylic systems), water feature construction, manufacturing and distribution divisions. Subsequent to the tax law changes, water-shortage "scare," and general decline in the California and U.S. economy in the late eighties these businesses were sold and liquidated. I worked for three years as a consultant and buyer for the mass-merchandiser PetCo in their bid to upgrade their stores, incorporating livestock. Is there a difference between what you do for money and for a living? Not me. Nowadays I write articles and books for the diving/underwater natural history and ornamental aquatics interests, and manage my rentals and securities. I browse the electronic bulletin boards to "chat" with others daily, and often travel, to go "hashing" (sort of running), writing and photographing with friends around the world.
