i have 2 bettas in a 5g but one never had a full 5g tank to themselves. i had the divider setup before the first one went in and he never explored the other side. i dont know what divided a tank leaving the first betta with 50% less territory would do but they may get used to it. probably would need to ask a more experienced betta owner here for that.

i wish you the best of luck in your plans to move the betta to safer territory.

Lol. I might try that bettaqi. Thanks also Nel3. Things seem to have calmed down a bit since I removed the food, but I will probably still move it anyway.

I am cruel but I don't kill animals! How mean! Ask your mom if you can put it in her room when your'e at school. Or you can put it in your closet.

I could do that too. Actually I was thinking about moving it while my sister, mom, and dad are at yoga saturday morning.

If your sister has made threats to kill your fish and intentionally goes out of her way to do so, that is animal abuse and you CAN press charges against her. If you witness her doing anything to your fish that beyond a reasonable doubt you conclude was to purposely harm your fish, you can call the police and file a report.

But make sure your state considers fish to be animals. I know NY does, but I'm not sure about TX. : /

Forgive me if I am wrong, but I believe that only a small handful of states do not consider them animals. I know Alaska is one.

How can a state not consider a fish to be an animal? What else could they be?
