I had a betta years ago when I was in high school. He was a red VT named Tavona who I still maintain was Satan. (Little evil thing, killed any other fish I'd put in his 5.5 gallon tank, bit me, and once my mom's Main Coone! The bites drew blood on us both...)
Now I have Gillium aka Gilly (the a**hole). He's a black to blue ombre VT. I feel bad, he had an accident which cost him most of his anal fin, but its growing back very well! He seems quite happy, so I'm pretty happy too. He made me this beautiful bubble nest last week!
I was talking about the the first one..the one that killed all of the other fish that she\he put in the 5.5 gal...not the cat! Lol
The guy at the petshop said it would be ok, he killed two gold fish before I just let him be.
Though, him attacking the cat and me was a bit excessive I think haha
Pippin -- he was! But I loved him either way. Even if he hated me.
leedavidford -- I had this problem too! I resorted to keeping a layer of mesh under the lid, so he couldn't jump out... or me!
Also, thank you <3 I got Gilly as a gift from a customer at my old job. He told me to pick the prettiest of the bettas he bred, so I took Gilly.
