View Full Version : Territorial Betta

Hi all my Betta has become very territorial is this normal, is there any thing I can do. I have kept bettas before and had no problems but this one is chasing anything that comes near where he hangs out, and then proceeds to chase the offending fish around the tank for about 45 seconds, if anyone knows something I can try then please help,
regards, Brian.

i would suggest placing some plants around where he hangs out and more around the tank becuase when it comes to bettas, theres some nice ones and some really terrtiorial ones which u cant do much about

If he becomes too much of a problem you may have to do what I did and buy him his own little world. Horatio now lives alone at work because he could not play nice in the big tank. Sometimes you get one like that.....

Thanks for the replys I will try more plants if he does not behave then it looks like he will have to have his own world,

Many thanks,
