Oh I forgot to say:
Bettas only need to be kept away from other male bettas.
They can be kept quite easily with a variety of other fishes.
What the faces they make is called "Flaring". It is to make themselves appear larger than other males.
2 male bettas in 1 tank will fight to the death.
I have kept a betta in a 10g tank with Guppys and Platys,
and I have kept a betta in my 75g tank with community fish including Discus and Angelfish and Gouramis, and various loaches, catfish, and tetras, etc.
They are usually pretty peaceful with other fish.

Thank you very much, sneakypete!

My little guy is alive and well.

I appreciate all of that info, and the time you took to write it. I've definitely taken notes.
