I just thought I'd add that, since it's one question I'd definitely be asking.

Forgive me, for I know not what I do...

Keep them in separate bowls? If so for how long? I don't have extra fish bowls laying around so if it's only a few days I assume mason jars would be fine?

They would be, it ain't like we all have a few dozen perfectly set up mini tanks to QT in but yeah. I would change the water at least once a day with the water that they will live in, keeps the fish used to it. So long as they remain by themselves... As for how long... 1 week to a month, depending on why you are QTing. I do it until it becomes clear that the fish are okay.

The reason you are QTing is to make sure they are not sick with something from the pet store. I've seen some people lose their fish because they didn't QT new fish that they added to the tank and they ended up having sicknesses.

I just wanted to make sure you knew, because I'd hate to see it happen again.

Agreed, It happens all to easily to loose a fish due to an unknown sickness that could have been seen through QT. I have done it myself. :(

I have actually never had anything else in my betta tanks. I was clueless about them.. but I knew not to put them with other fish. I was actually surprised when I learned from this site that there are certain things they can live with, lol. My VT might be able to handle a tankmate, but my CT is so agressive I think he'd probably kill anything I stuck in there with him.
