Disaster averted.

My girlfriend fell in love with my new betta Sub-Zero. But she is afraid he is lonely so she did what any other caring woman would do. She bought another male to "keep him company". Got home in time to see the bag floating in his tank and Sub-zero was angry. Flaring like crazy. New guy is in a 4 quart water jug until we get another tank. If anyone else is new to betta's make sure you tell the people that you live with that betta's hate each other. Hope this helps others.

Thank goodness you got home in time. They don't call them Siamese Fighting Fish for nothing.

Yeah, I'm always surprised that name doesn't clue people in. Here they are labelled as that, rather than bettas (most of the time).

And people still think they'll be fine living together. I don't think so.
