Yes, they are quite spoiled. When I moved the 2 to the 20 they were so happy. I hadn't intended on getting the 3rd but there's that one moment where you can't resist. So we'll likely be moving to a 29 which is a small jump really or right to a 40. I have a very, very large tank and stand in my shed but uh, getting it out is a problem. And testing to see if it holds water.

One comet, one oranda and a fancy fantail. They do quite well with the one single tail but I probably wouldn't add anything other than a fancy to the lot.

I refered my friend to this site being as she wants to get into betta's to she already has three goldfish. She has also been helping me and was the first one to tell me I was using the wrong stuff. I feel horrible for having done this to the fish and I Should have known better. but I litterly felt like I murdered all of those fish. I am just so glad my son cnt tell the difference between different fish atm he just sees swimming and he says "fish".

and I just read some of the very hateful comments made inthis thread. saying that I was pushing people to agree with me and that my tank was overstocked. Really? and The ammonia was fine according to the tests done on the water so to the person who said it was ammonia poisoning where is my apology? sorry im just very hurt by some of the comments made. I am a newbie at the fish thing i have three cats and three dogs and 2 children who I keep alive i dont find it fun killing fishing :C

Sorry to see you got that intro to this site. I personally have not had any experience like that since I joined a little while back. Easiest thing to do is take those experiences as a lesson and allow yourself to move on knowing how to look after the next lucky Betta that will be given a nice home. Dont let the few people who seem to wanna bully you deter you from this site as its full of great and useful info on Betta care and aquarium setup. There are lots of people like OFL that will give you the support and info you need.

There is only one way you can have 2 fish in a five gallon and that's if its a divided tank with 2 bettas...

EDIT: also sorry about the hateful comments, people just get fired up because they worry about the fish, thats all :). Dont feel too bad about the fish dying, it was a learning experience and there is so muh wrong info out there that even after doing research its hard to get things right.

It's really quite sad when people feel the need to abuse someone who is new to the hobby instead of trying to understand their predicament and helping them with kindness. We were all new at one point, and we all made mistakes. I'm glad you weren't deterred from coming back, OP. Hope your new fishies will do better. :)
