So sweet, sounds like they will be buds all right. Yeah, I love my special girl. She has trouble remembering where she is and what she was doing. She comes in from the garage and immediately wants to go back out, then immediately wants back in. She starts to jump up on something then forgets in mid leap and just plops back down. She sleeps with her tongue hanging out and yowls for no reason. She falls off things too. One time she fell down behind the water heater where she liked to sleep because it was warm. Had to call my dad home from work to get her out.

I recommend neons, rasboras, or cory cats for your tank. I have panda cories in my tank and because they're bottom feeders, my betta doesn't bother them and they don't bother her. You can put probably 5 bronze or albino cories in a 20 gal tank. Rasboras are peaceful schoolers, could get maybe 10. Neons have been known to nip fins but otherwise they usually work well. A big school of neons is pretty, you could probably have 12-15 in a 20 gal. For a 10 gal, you can have 3-4 bronze or albino cories, or 5-6 rasboras or 8 neons.

Well, you can always post on the betta forum's parent website
www.tropicalfishkeeping.com
But I like the people on the betta forum best. You can try posting in the lounge. Or try the "I Have No Self-Control" thread. We talk about just about anything there so we'll help you there, too.

No problem. I love the people here. I'm a member of another fish forum but I never post there anymore because the people just aren't anywhere near as nice as here.

Yeah, this forum is the best. And people here actually know what they're talking about most of the time.

I'm surprised you didn't throw some dirty tank water at him. I hate when people are like that! It's like, no, they can't be with other bettas or anything that can eat them. Sheesh, you'd like to think fish salesmen know what they're talking about but I learned a long time ago most of them don't.
