Most Asked Question About Betta

Are Betta fish stupid??? A friend of mine asked me this question recently. No. Betta are very savvy instinctive creatures. Its only certain owners that may lack intelligence. (Personal Opinion)

Fish and other animals evolve to cope with certain environments. Even when they're removed from those environments they retain some of their instinctual habits, so their behavior may seem irrational. When you spend much time watching fish in aquariums, it's easy to conclude that they do indeed think, learn and feel emotions. The small brain that most fish have limits only their sophistication. Of course, that's just one opinion.

Well I haven't meet any Betta or other fish species which own a Nobel Prize, but I believe in their own way they are intelligent. Some more, some less intelligent, just like humans.
Usually people buy and keep fishes because of their looks, not because their intelligence. Quotient...or I'm wrong?
