Why are Goldfish so inferior to Bettas in every way?
>>
>>2044509
> no dorsal fin
>>
>>2044509
Bettas are gay ass meme fish.
>>
>Can't puff up on their own
>Have to be bred to have puffy faces
>>
Because goldfish are giant poop machines that don't have a labyrinth organ.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little goldfish? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Fish, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on the quarantine tank, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in underwater warfare and I have the top flare in the entire fish tank. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before in this water, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, goldfucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of shrimp across the tank and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, bloodworm. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, fish. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my dorsal fin. Not only am I extensively trained in fin combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the tank's Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable inbred genes off the face of the continent, you little goldfish. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking gaping koi mouth. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn goldfish. I will flare fury all over you and you will dry out in it. You’re fucking dead, goldo.

What the fuck is wrong with people?

U 'avin a giggle m8?
Goldfish are fucking elder god tier in the aquarium/pond keeping world.
>Vast amount of colors & sizes
>TONS of breeds to choose from
>Hardy as fuck
>Tons of personality
>Can outlive almost all other household pets
The only downside I can think of is needing to upgrade to a larger tank or pond. Other than that they have no problems.

That's a gourami right? Had one of those before. Had character and spunk. Kept him with a school of his/her kind and a betta. I don't really understand how they got along but they did. Never met a betta who thought he was a gourami. Probably wasnt a good idea to put him in there but they coexisted. And the one with character would nip food from my finger.

All gouramis, including bettas and paradise fish should be kept with no other gouramis, even if they are two different species.

As opposed to wasting 30x that amount on making a hugeass pond with a filter that can compensate for their infinite shitting?

That betta was seriously ripped for a fish. The owner must have been feeding it hormones or it was some ancient beast because I'm pretty sure it could bench more than me.

my betta has survived without a heater and his tank is near the window and I live in Canada and i never turn on the heat in my apartment

I came here because I saw a betta, but I realized, this must be what 1911 vs Glock threads must look like to people who know nothing about guns.
Especially with this >>2045070 guy, because while people argue back and forth about why their pistolfu is better than the other pleb-tier gun, some one will always post a revolver or something declaring both sides are incorrect and autistic.

How are they not ripping each other apart?

The bubble eye goldfish is a deformed and dysgenic breed.

They're the English Bulldog of the goldfish world.

I don't know where this whole "let's breed incredibly deformed animals for fun" meme came from.

Could you keep a bunch of bettas together like they do with hamsters in stores? Or would, say 5 bettas, all battle to the death?
>>
>>2044509

Please enlighten us, because I can't thing of a single thing bettas do better, or that makes them better, than goldfish.

That said, all freshwater fish are shit. Man up and get a marine tank.
>>
>>2047753
male bettas are incredibly territorial and will rip eachother to shit.
Hamsters are actually a little similar, but not nearly to the same degree. they prefer to be solitary and keeping more than one runs risk of them fighting.
>>
>>2044509
Goldfish is alpha
>>
>>2048106
I understand that hamsters are solitary little assholes but I've never seen them fighting in a cage in the store when there's like 10+ hamsters in there. You would think that it would turn into a bloodbath but it doesn't. Why wouldn't it work the same with bettas?
>>
>>2048193
Bettas are much more territorial than hamsters. You also gotta remember, the 'domestic' bettas are a direct result of the taiwanese and shit breeding them to fight for hundreds of years, and are actually likely more aggressive than their wild ancestors.
>>
>>2046813
The little one gave the fuck up. See how the big one's flaring but the small one isn't? Small fry knows he's fucked if he tries some shit, so he'll be a good boy.

That being said, wouldn't surprise me if the giant one tried clipping the little fucker once the cameraman was gone.

No, that is not a koi, google pics of koi, they look nothing like that except for coloration.

It is possible that it is a koi/goldfish hybrid or a wild carp/goldfish hybrid though. Many goldfish breeds grow large enough to mate with koi and their wild carp ancestors. And these hybrids are quite common.
>>
>>2047747
And I've read plenty of horror stories about female bettas. One anon posted in the aquarium general about how one of her female bettas murdered all of the baby cory cats in their tank by ripping out their swim bladders.

The most baffling thing is that many bettas slaughter all shrimp and snails in the tank. Those don't even look like fish, let alone other bettas, so why they felt the need to kill them is beyond me.
>>
>>2046651
What the fucking shit? I need this. They better not be expensive.
>>
>>2048869
Maybe it's just a wild carp with the orange color mutation that managed to survive somehow. I mean, it's too stocky to be a koi and too fucking big to be a goldfish.
