Welcome :)....Also stay away from semi-aggressive and aggressive fish for they will nip and they will also kill your bettas.

So I have been researching what would be the best set up for my bettas.....divided 5 or 10 gallon or individual tanks. This morning I found a tremendous amount of bubbles in one section of the top of my 2 gallon petco tank. That's a good sign as to the happiness of my betta correct? Here is the tank. I don't use the filter, just do water changes thus far.


Should I get another for my other betta since one of them likes it?

Oh look how handsome they are!!! A 10g divided tank is an awesome idea! Betta heaven! Your sister's advice to go for live plants is a really good one. Of course, live plants aren't *necessary* for fishy happiness, but I did notice that my betta is in love with all of his (specifically the floaters at the top of the tank). It's nice to meet you, Mike! This forum has been helping me out a TON, seeing as I'm a new betta keeper too!

Hello all. These fish maybe smarter than i think. I wet my finger. Put a pellet on it. Put my finger with the pellet just above the water surface and my little white one can jump out of the water and grab the pellet.

On another note, i have two tank setups being given to me. A 10 gallon and a 15 gallon. I am going to divide the ten for these two guys. Not sure what i am going to do with the 15 yet.

Ended up doing a ten gallon divided tank with store bought divider. I had to make a baffle for the filter, my little guy was swimming sideways. Both are suffering from minor fin rot. Using water changes and aquarium salt to treat. The divider is not good because they can see right through it. They flare their gills and fins and really want to go at it.

On another note, i just started a 15 gallon tall tank with flourite and two filters going. Once it clears up, i am going to get some lighting and plants. I might put a betta in each tank and forget the divided idea. They are really stressed.

You could always try to add in fake plants and just cover both sides of the divider with them. They're less likely to be able to see each other this way. If you can afford it, anyways.
