Earlier I asked a question about dividing my 5.5G in the quick questions thread. Since it was quick questions, I wanted to bring my more specified questions into a new thread, so here we go:
My tank lid prevents my from centering my heater/filter. Do I simply remove the lid and work around this? Or is it alright to just slide a mesh divider (or two) in the middle and help camouflage/blend with plants?
My boyfriend keeps going on about pheromones and how fish release them and anger each other with them. Is he just talking out of his...ya know...or is he right? I can see them seeing each other and flaring, etc, but pheromones is another story.
Ideally I would have two males in the tank (divided), but if the following information above forms in a way that forces me unable to do so, would I be able to put a female next to my male that I will NOT be mating her with? If so, will this effect her mating behavior?
