I am a lover of betta fish and have had a few in the past (one even travelled with me as my copilot on our cross country move!). I have a 10g aquarium that has been cycled for well over a year in our new home, however with this past heat wave (which is rare in Seattle!) and no AC, my black skirt tetras did not fare well. My water tested perfect, so my LFS could find no reason for their demise other than possibly the heat. :(
So I am planning on starting my community tank over by adding a betta along with 6 neons (betta would go in last). When looking at bettas, are there any tips for identifying one with a "mellow/semi peaceful temperment"? Is that even possible or is it just hit or miss?
Thanks so much!
