A healthy - and interested - adult jack Dempsey ("Cichlasoma" octofasciatum). These fish get fairly large and can be quite aggressive, but they also will interact with their owners (and that can be very rewarding).

"Your site is wonderful. I think it will really help some people with questions and that are new to caring for Bettas (and other fish)."
