I must have the most aggressive of aggressive. So i had the divided ten gallon going for two weeks. I even cut a plastic folder to size and poked holes in it. Small holes. And put it over the transparent divider. Nope, it didn't stop my two guys from flaring their gills and egos. They would sit where the divider meets the glass for hours and hours. Yet they could hardly see each other! So, i separated them in their own tanks. Again! Oh, my clear transparent white one, has started changing to blue, purple. I will get pics up soon. Hope you all are doing well.

I have two males like that. Can't see eachother at all or they both go psycho for hours and hours. It just never ends. I end up showing them each other for like ten minutes a day for exercise. :P

Pics!!! Yes please!!!

both my guys started getting fin rot and were visibly unhappy. Separation and aquarium salt cured em both. bubble nests are plentiful.

Separated permanently. I am adding two albino cory catfish to the ten gallon tonight.

Setting up a live plant 15 gallon tall for the other betta. His tank mates will be a rubberlipped pleco and maybe some tetras.

Can't get a picture of the catfish. They are way to FAST. So far, my betta seems to like the company.

YAY! It's nice to see that he has a friends!!! My betta liked his plecos. Now there's a sorority of friends in that tank with those plecos! My betta male likes solitude more anyways. :P

One of my Betta fish died : (

It was the red one. Overnight. No changes in tank and no signs of disease so I assume natural causes. Now I have two albino cories, one rubber lip pleco and one betta all living happily in the same tank. Well the cories fight for some reason. The little one gets nips taken out of his tail by the big one. And everyone thought Betta's are aggressive and cories are passive. HA!
