    Well its not really amazing that they can live in little cups if you consider their natural habitat.These fish live in stagnant rice paddies and puddles and for this reason have adapted to breathe air.Bettas are really not good community aquarium fish and do much better in low flow systems.While Bettas are very hardy they do have a very short lifespan.It is rare for them to live for more then 5 years.It is always best to purchase juveniles to be sure you have them for as long as possible.;)

    Shhhh vinnie, don't tell me about short lifespans. ;) I look at it like this: as long as he's alive and in my care he will receive the best I can provide. :)
