I know everyone else has been bugging you. I'm going to bug you. And I'm sorry to say this, but I'm not sorry about bugging you.

a. even if the goldfish has the whole 10 gallon to itself, it will still outgrow it. Sure a goldfish can live 20 years, but only in the right conditions. A 10 gallon is not the "right conditions", it simply isn't big enough. So your goldfish is not going to live for 20 years.

b. if your betta is this "disposable" to you (forgive me if I'm interpreting the wrong way) why would you want another one? Bettas have lived up to 10 years, which is longer than your goldfish is going to live. Many members' bettas have lived from 3 to 5 years. See >>> How old was/is your oldest Betta - what's the longest you've had one last?? I, for one, am very sad when one of my bettas dies. I have been known to cry, and I'm not ashamed about it. I'm sad to think that your betta is nothing but a disposable thing that you would rather replace with a different, better one.

c. if you want a HM, why don't you get rid of the goldfish. Divide the 10 gallon 3 or 4 ways and you can have your HM. But I would hope it gets better care than your current betta is getting.

That's all I have to say. But if I think of more I'll say it later.

A well cared for betta will live up to 7 years.. not three. Your goldfish will NOT live 20 years in a 10 gallon tank. Even at the petstore (where the idiots work) they say to have AT LEAST a 20 gallon tank.. TWENTY GALLONS. It doesn't matter how much you keep an eye on the water quality.. when it comes down to it there is not enough space.. plain and simple.

Yeah, guys... as Jennyinurmouth says... This thread is already dead horse puree... from being whipped too much!!
I wouldn't try any more. If he doesn't listen, so be it. But it won't be our problem when his goldfish and betta die due to not being properly taken care of!


In the hobby for 9 years.

Well, my hasty fish comrads, It is suggested to use a 20 gallon tank in order to help with the water...to make it easier on yourself....And if you must know, I intend to get a 55 gallon tank with two goldfish....My fantail & a Black Moore...So yeah, thanks for the suggestion and ugh concerns & what not...but I think I'll be alright...Duces
