Hey guys! I have just had some bad luck with Bettas recently. I have had 5 deaths in a year. My first betta lasted 2 weeks. I think he was sick. My second betta lasted about 6 months and my 3rd betta lasted 1 week. He has Ick and I had no idea he did when I bought him. My 4th betta lasted for 5 months and he was my favorite. Then, my 5th betta lasted 1 week. I believe he was very weak when I bought him. He was marked as FREE. So, I have switched from Bettas to Mollies. I bought 3 Female Mollies today at my PetSuperMarket and I put them in my filtered, heated, 5 gallon tank. I already feed them and they ate already. They are really active fish too. I have Dalmation Mollies. They eat fish flakes, bloodworms, and Algae. I will miss my bettas! Betta fish are still my favorite fish of all time. It was just so sad today to see sad sick bettas at PetSuperMarket. Well, give me luck with my new fish! So far, so good. I will still come on this Forum a lot and post stuff.
