So I work at Walmart, and at the end of my shift I sometimes wander over to the fish and look at the bettas. Yes, they're barely cared for and doomed to waste away.
If there was a permanent position in the pet department, I'd jump on it. But I digress...
Tonight I spied a pretty little marble CT and he was actually perking up at the sight of me and begging for attention. Whereas the others were just hovering (or floating) depressingly. No obvious signs of disease, but it's just a matter of time. The water was dirty with poop and uneaten food. I even heard a manager say, "They're supposed
to be feeding them everyday."
I wouldn't mind bringing home the little dude if I knew I could reliably divide up the Magster's 20-gallon tank. I'm worried that with all the dividers I've seen being clear, the stress of seeing each other will eventually kill them. Which I KNOW it will. Is it possible to arrange decor so that they aren't aware of each other's presence? Abel doesn't try to squeeze into odd areas or investigate every nook and cranny, so I don't think he'd be an issue. It's the marble that I'm not sure about.
I need some creative ideas. I have a feeling that the little guy is doomed if I don't take him in.
