I get to set up two tanks tomorrow :) It's going to be interesting... I need a shelf though And the bf hasn't been able to load one up for me lol

Bryanacute, true. I give kudos to those who have 1-2 gallons though it can be a lot more work!

Yah. I'm low in space… I have a 5 with a current resident of Rose. The bully girl. I want to TRY to put in some other fish.

Good luck If you do add any fish with her, clean the tank, remove her from the tank, add the said fish, then re-add her after floating her otherwise they are in HER domain and she will definitely think they deserve to die.

She messed up Cleo. BAD. I'll make a Cleo Diary. Cleo on her journey to recovery.

Did you have them both in the 5 gallon?? She may just be an alpha... and with only one other fish there, it was easy for her to know who to bully. Or did you have them in a sorority? I have had some nasty ladies, despite being in anything between 10-40 gallons, stuffed.

I had them in a 10. We couldn't find a lid so went to five. Took out Cleo before we switched 2 a 5.

I have nothing against 1-2 gallon tanks. I am happy along as they have live plants, are maintained and kept to the proper temp. My main issue with the smaller tanks is when you do your water changes the betta can be greatly stressed. Large water changes can be very stressful.

Putting live plants in the smaller tanks can reduce how big your water change is.
