Also, females should NEVER be kept together in the way you're doing it. They need a sorority type setting (a 10 gallon with at least 5 girls) to keep from killing each other in the long run, no matter how they act now.
I've read about sororities. My granpa has three betta girls in a 5 gallon for half a year now? Maybe a bit less/more, but I'd think they'd have killed each other by now. He also used to be a betta breeder, if that says anything about his experience.
I mean you can live in your closet, but you probably have a room because you enjoy moving. Basically the same concept, even petsmart recommends more for these fish. Thats saying something, you can care for your fish perfectly and they can eat and swim and seem great. But they are fish, they dont really have any means of complaining, right?
That's true, they don't. My LFS got some GhostCats recently and I hope to get those, but really I want to get the guppies moved first. As long as he seems fine, not sick, active, and eating now, I don't really see the harm in it.
I don't listen to Petsmart as far as fishkeeping goes... when the one I live closest to can't even take care of their bettas... or really, 9/10ths of their fish. ==
I've read up on GhostCats, done quite a bit of research. I love fish like him more than anything. If he dies from lack of voice to tell me his unhappiness, I'll make a thread so everyone can say "I told you so!" :D
But it's not like he was raised in a big tank, either. Pet store 2 gallon, vase (temporary when he came home), BiOrb, and now half a ten gallon. >>
And just saying... I don't mind living in a closet. :D BUT THAT'S JUST ME, lol... I'm weird like that. xD
