yes! they are serpae! thank you!
I really don't want to add anymore fish with the female betta because when I added the xray tetra I noticed quite a bit of tension between the gourami and serpae. The female betta annoys them all I can tell, and I don't want to freak them all out even more by adding new fish, when the female leaves in 2 weeks or so I will totally get more, but its a tricky situation at the moment. I don't have anywhere to put the female except for a jar but thats even worse! So when I get my sorority set up, then she will leave and I will get more serpae and corys!
The serpae arent seeming to cause any problems though which I am glad about, I thought that there would be but the most tension is between the gourami and betta because... theyre both top feeder fish and of the same.. family I think? maybe genus I have no clue, but that seems to be the only problem and there isn't too much fighting either, so I am glad. Hopefully keeping the betta in there for 2 more weeks wont damage anything.
Thanks so much though
