Hmmm... the Betta is not sluggish because of the food then... it's because of the REDRUM! O-O

MrVampire182: So if I want to keep tetras, they should be in a betta free tank? Good to know.

Omboc: Sad about the cardinals; they are beautiful fish...

And the verdict is!

Three of them died, when they pretend to die, I guess they just pencil dive into the ground. I found 1 wedged into a corner, and the other 2 stuck against a rock in my aquarium. :/

I wish the guy at the store would have let me known that >

I have kept cardinal tetras with male bettas without any problem. It was necessary to have a school of around 6 tetras and a socialized male betta. Male bettas that are kept alone for awhile may not tolerate any other fish or inverts in the tank. It increases their aggression.

Dragonlady,

Thank you; I will keep this in mind when I put together my large community tank (currently a 'fantasy tank' - like a 'fantasy football' team).

Omboc,

I'd check with your pet store. Some stores have 'fish loss' policies. They might issue a refund or store credit if you bring back the unfortunate cardinals.

Good luck,

Cheryl
