So I am wondering if moving a fish to a new tank is really stressful? I want to set up a 20 long for three bettas. Id split it 10 gallons for my male (and oldest betta) then split again 5 gallons each for my two girls. Think he would be okay with that? I moved Zeus to an upgraded tank and he died not even 24 hours later....
It's a good thing that you're moving them to a bigger tank, and it can be stressful for your fish when they move. I think that you should put them in quiet environment, and don't just plop your fish in when moving, put them in a covered cup, and float them for 30 minutes.
yeah I floated my two other males for awhile before putting them in. The one still died though. So I dunno. Fishy is my oldest betta, I just dont want to stress him out too much for being an old man betta. Dont want him keeling over just for an upgrade. Heh.
Depends on the personality. I have had some go bezerk over a tank change and others who love it. If you think he's really skittish then maybe it won't be a good thing but if he's pretty chill then you should be fine.
Hmm..I dunno really lol. He seems mellow. He use to be crazy,but now hes just old man fish. I am thinking maybe to just get another 10 and split it for my girls. Would be nice though to just have two tanks for all the fish.
