Part of me wants to just separate the tank and get a second male for Drax to flare at and mess with etc etc...
Then the other part of me wants to get community fish...
10Gal tank, heated, some live plants, well lit, ... pretty much cycled...
Pros of 2nd Betta: Less work... Drax has a buddy to flare at.
Cons I split Drax's home in half where now he pretty much goes all over the tank... seems mean to take him from a vase... give him a whole 10gal that he seems to LOVE then cut that in half.
Pros of Community fish... More bang for my buck on that expensive tank, parents will approve since they love Drax now... but would like more fish to look at. Drax can play and or bully all he wants (Hopefully not too much I wouldn't stop him if he just lightly tailbit... now if tails start vanishing thats another story). I've now gotten myself fully into this hobby and I'm still as giddy as when I first got Drax so not like my OCD like care is going to suddenly vanish with more upkeep. Unless I got tank cleaners...
Cons... more upkeep. Possible diseases spreading. Feeding differences. Fighting... which I wouldn't mind much as long as like... no one looses a fin or an eye but Promise I won't come on here every 5 minutes with new threads going. "Drax is flaring at all the other fish! UGH!" Or get stressed out. This tank...
*Dons Sunglasses* is to be the ...... chilllllllllllll tank
Oh what fish was it I saw that if it's compatible at ALL is an instant MUST have... they were all in the Petsmart tanks just swimming up to me as if going. "PICK ME! :D PICK ME! :D" I swear it was either one of the Pleco's or... Loaches... it was grey-ish and were dozens of them at the bottom of the tank... gosh in the fish world it was equivalent of having dozens of adorable puppies rushing at you they seemed so excited XD if I was to put my money on it... I'd assume it was the Hifin Spotted Pleco THEIR SO CUTE!
*Glares* Think hard Betta Experts... Would Pleco's be a......
Disastrous (Murder within minutes),
Experimental (Depends on the fish's personalities, monitor them closely),
Ok (Ignore eachother),
Curious (Mild interaction),
Friendly (They play tag).
My Selections... OOOooh they Sell CrownTails!
... also what weirdo created the Red Lionhead Goldfish? Some of those Goldfish were just... like... WTH... is up with that...
Anyway back on topic since I'm now distracted by the fish pictures... oooh they have Black Ghost Knife's!
*Slaps self across face* OK back on topic!
... as I said with the Goldfish... the hell is wrong with these Cichlids? They all ... well some just look fake >,>
Ooooh Mystery Snail! *Yep he's lost in fish World... Please help, Tetra's just... eh... just didn't wow me* I want other fish that say... "I'm owned by an Insane But VERY Creative person!" ....... and don't say the creepy fake hybrid fish! I want healthy natural ones............ that are colorful... like PLECO'S :D
(Yep... please slap me at ANY time)
