So yesterday I discovered that my two betta girls were getting all feisty with each other. Now usually they get along very well, Eugeney will halfheartedly chase Hilda for about a second after they've eaten but that's the extent of their 'arguments.'
When I saw them yesterday Eugeney was flaring and trying to nip at Hilda, and Hilda always one to hold her own against her older tank mate was doing the same back. *sigh* Eugeney is now in a plastic ziplock taped to the inside of the tank and even though they're separated they still are winding each other up.
I'm sure this fight broke out because of Eugeney's failing eyesight. For the past few weeks I've noticed that she's having more and more trouble seeing her pellets and I've noticed her bumping into some of the decor. If it keeps up then I'll probably have to separate them.
I took some pictures of them and I'll add them later.
