I don't RECCOMEND a tank that small. Fauna was in that small of a tank temporarily because she will be part of a 5 Betta sorority. All my females are housed separately for noe in case of illness/disease like what happened to fauna, I don't want it spreading.

My suggestion would be to find a 2.5 gallon (MINIMUM) tank and have a heater in it.

1 gallon will work if you're diligent on the cleaning. Walmart fish aren't necessarily bad. Just make sure they look healthy. Ours had 6 female King bettas this morning. CRAZY.
Aww I feel special :D Teeney my first female came from walmart. She's always been very active & wild- she's fairly bright for a female too. All the other females were dead or really rough looking... The males weren't much better.. But it really depends on your walmart I guess.

My PETco takes good Care of their bettas more than anyone. And they have the most in stock. Ocasionally i see dead ones in cups but the water is always perfctly clean so its more than likely illness thg gets em.Petsmart isn't too much better than walmart for me.

R.I.P. Flora

F...M...L

Yep, that's right. I can't believe I was stupid enough to buy her. I had a bad feeling at first but I didn't want to leave her behind. UGH. two in one day?? Fudge petsmart, I guess I'll be at PETco tomorrow. This sad stuff is going to put introducing the sorority on hold. Poor babies!

Thanks. I feel kinda bad that I'm running out and replacing them so quickly... But my bettas are in small Unheated quarantine tanks and id like to get the sorority together and get them out of cold tanks asap!

I guess it was a bad batch of bettas? I worry about pandora- I think she's related to fauna and flora since she looks similar in colors and was in the same batch. But she's acting well and has been acting well since I got her so please everyone hope for the best for her :P

Luna is so cute! ever since i got Kira, i've been a fan of crown tails. i wish i had a petco/petsmart nearby to go for different types of girls. i've got a couple locally owned pet stores that are nice but the betta selection isn't very good.

Thanks! Before Luna and pandora all my bettas including my males were veil tails. I like having a little mixture :3
