So yesterday I went and bought a 10g tank to support my new addiction (i.e. bettas :) and in the process brought home a new crown tail betta (he is so gorgeous and he just spoke to me that I had to give in!).
Here is where the problem comes in. I set up the tank and was getting ready to acclimate Artie (new guy) when I realized it was leaking. Thankfully Artie was loose yet so I put him in a glass vase for the time being (hate to do that without a heater but hopefully only for today) and had to completely undo all my hard work. Tonight I am going to buy another 10g (hopefully wont have the same problem).
Then comes the second problem. My betta Fabio at work has to come home. He was in my 29g community tank and seemed fine over the last 4 almost 5 weeks. However, yesterday he became extremely aggressive toward my other fish and now one of my rasbora is missing an eye (otherwhise a healthy fish that is still swimming and eating - just missing an eye).
So, tonight not only do I have to return my previous tank and purchase a new one but have to divide it and acclimate two bettas. Ugh.
The new one from last night had stress lines before bed but looked better this morning. He ate a couple pellets and other than what looks like a scrape on the top of his head (probably from being fiesty and trying to jump out of his closed cup when I was acclimating him) he seems fine.
Should I acclimate both bettas at the same time or one before the other?
Any suggestions are appreciated!
