About Us

Welcome to Healthy Betta!


I am Peter Howard, the Founder of Healthy Betta Inc. My love of fish keeping started about a few years ago when I brought home my first betta. He was a veil tail with a deep purple body and rich red fins. Little did Rudy (as he was so named) or I know on that day that he would forever spark my enjoyment for the addicting hobby of fishkeeping.

Although I started with bettas, these days you’ll also find me with other tropical fish such as Harlequin Rasboras, Cory Catfish, and Dwarf Gouramis. Ghost shrimp often have a presence in my tanks as well. I adore the natural appearance and benefits of live plants and find great joy in keeping planted tanks. I am forever grateful to the friend who offered me a sample of java moss and java ferns, as my appreciation for live plants took off from there.

I have come a long way since my first days with Rudy, but find there’s always something relevant and new to learn in the fish world. During the past few years, I have also come to appreciate the importance and need for accurate, unbiased fish information and care on the Internet.

HealthyBetta.com was founded with the goal to be your #1 source for betta and tropical fish care in an easy-to-follow format. All of your favorite articles and betta guides are available throughout the site. So make yourself at home, take a look around, learn a thing or two, and enjoy the site!
