So today I get home from work and go to look at my bettas. I have 3, Kinu is in his own 2.5 gallon tank (which will be upgraded to a 5g in 2 weeks) and Kaito and Drogo share a divided 10g. When I go to look for my boys in the 10g I couldn't find them. I looked all over before noticing they had both managed to get into the middle section meant to space them further apart and keep the heater and filter away from them. Kaito had gotten himself stuck between the filter and the tank wall, I assume in an attempt to hide, but when I got him out he seemed fine. His fins were all in tack and he swam around normally. Drogo on the other hand is now missing a good chunk of his anal fin :(
I have no idea how they BOTH got through the dividers, but it looks like I might have to upgrade Kinu sooner rather than later and put Kaito in the 2.5g to prevent this from happening again....especially since I plan to leave them in my un-experienced step-mom's care next week -.- I'd hate to make her clean 3 tanks instead of 2 but I'd rather make her do more work than risk losing a fish or 2 because the dividers aren't working.
*sigh* I had other plans for that 2.5g
