Note: Bettas are sold in small cups at the store, this is not the way to keep them. While they can survive for a time in a small space it is hardly ideal and borders on cruelty.

Care: Easy.
Communities: Keep in pairs, species tanks, and community tanks with any other peaceful fish that will not nip fins.
Suitability: Good for all.
