A little question.

I've had my betta, Squishy, in his breeding box thing within the ten gallon tank for two weeks now. He is approximately 9-11 weeks old. I was wondering when I should let him go into the full ten gallons.

Because I was told he'd be too stressed being in the full tank.

Bollocks! You can release him... there was no need for you to keep him there.

"Squishy" .. . . that is the funniest, cutest name. Makes me laugh. I love it.

current pets: Alejandro Marmalade

Rehomed bettas (because of my move):
Cornelius Buttknuckle, Limoncello Dandy Lion, Cumulus Meriweather, Nimbus McCloud

Pinkerton Flowers and the fish formerly known as Prine Purplius LeGrape

Oh! I would be the person who suggested that! but I didnt say he'll be stressed out, just easier to take care of and monitor when you need to since they it is rather hard to check on their status when in a giant tank (comparative to their size). Especially since you just got him, I thought it would be good to monitor him for any possible issues that might crop up. Sorry for the mis information! =P I'm all for letting him out whenever you're ready!

I appologize for the "bollocks" part... I shouldn't be posting at 2am in the threads.
Breeder cages are great when introducing females to sororities. I float new girls for a week or two until everyone is use to one another, then there's no nipping to be worried about

Young ones will have stress stripes no matter what setup they are in... they will go away as he matures.
