My Randa Betta Is Lonely
I just graduated high school, and some asian girl gave me a random betta fish in a tupaware sorta thing, which apparently are sold all over now "AS A GREAT PET FOR YOUR HOME OR OFFICE!" (so the sign read). I remember having a big tank with many fish as a child, but... no one knew what the hell was in there, but everyone was happy, till my favorite "orangey" got his tail bit and he died, but that was long ago, and i digress. I don't know much about fish, but I've been reading up on bettas to try and see what i can do with it, cause just having this little round plastic container with a little red guy just sitting there is somewhat....depressing, and i know its genetic for them to be aggressive, but like my ****zu, i think this fish strays from normalcy and is probably very stupid. My friend has a spare 20g and 35g tank, and i would like to have a nice little community of fish in one nice sized tank. I went to the pet store and i saw a wall of bettas, and i felt bad cause all the other fish were happy, and they werent moving, and some were dead i think cause they were factory sealed or some garbage, it looked very unattural for them, again, i digress. the guy said not to put any fish with a betta, but this forum has given me hope and i want to know of any fish that almost always get along with bettas regardless of different temperments. and maintanence is'nt all that big of a deal for me, i just dont want something that will die if water temp is off by .5 degrees, or there is dust in the air around its tank. i just now realize how much ive given you to read, but since this is my first post, i felt obligated to incorporate some introductory elements into this. anyways, HALP
