I wonder if, after giving them a proper home with plants, they'll forget each other? I wonder of the reason he won't eat without being able to see her is because he's insecure or paranoid and needs to know where she is, not because he "loves" her but because of more primal instincts which lead to death?

I don't know. They are nice fish though :) Some people are so stupid about fish care. Glad you will have them soon!

that's why i told her not to put them together. :V because, once they feel better, they might duke it out. x:

but, if they still hang out near each other after they feel better, it'd be interesting. i plan on keeping them near each other either way, whether it's tanks beside each other, or a divided tank.

Most of my bettas are loners but I have a girl who lost almost all of her sorority mates, so then was in a divided 10g with her best friend, who then tragically died too- With her last friend gone Cleo was incredibly depressed, with actual stress lines... I had to get her another tank mate (male CT) and they literally hang out together at their clear divider constantly. I will never put them together, but I do believe she really does need a friend next to her.

Be sure to post pics when you get them set up at your home!!

so, my babies moved to their new home today. :V not my home, not yet. the gal who rescued them is keeping them until they're healthy enough to ship. :3

meanwhile, i'm saving up to them them this tank:
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hawkeye-5-...-Pets/14660258

i'm gonna divide it between them, so they each get 2.5 gallons, and stay beside each other. :3 i have two dividers already, they'd just probably need to be cut to fit. i'll also need a ton of new plants for them. .3. lots of pretty silk for my babies. :V

she put Ritter, the male, into the 5 gallon she's going to divide for them, and said he won't stop swimming! this is the most he's moved around since she got them, so that's wonderful news! <3

saving up to get some plants for the tank now. :V what i want to get them is going to cost around $20, give or take. :I
