Exclamation His new name is Cannibal.

SO I decided a few weeks ago I would start conditioning Troop and Hera to spawn. I began the spawning process about a week and a half ago (putting her in the tank with her container) I released her last Tuesday and things seemed to be going well, not a lot of chasing and NO nipping until this past Friday, she only had a small nip. I left them for 1 DAY! 1 DAY! and HE ATE HER!

All I can guess is that she died and he just ate her :( I'm really sad though. HE was a rescued walmart Betta and I got her from Petco. I feel like a bad person because I wasnt there :( so sad

Here she is. Cute little CT girl. Then there's him...he may have to be adopted by one of my friends...I'm renaming him Cannibal for now.

WOW!!! I've never heard of that happening! I once had a female die after a spawn, but that is very unusual.

No I don have a snail, I need to get one though. I had been feedig them in there so I know he wasn't starving. I think I'm going to put him in my boyfriends 55gal. Even though he'll be with 2 large angels.....I'm not too worried about "cannibal".

Don't put him with angels! They are very aggressive when in pairs. They are in the category of fish that you should never house with bettas!



Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?
