When I got Splash his 10 gal tank I gave my 3 gal to my next door neighbor because he has a ten year old daughter that really likes my betta. Anyhoo today he finally has the time to go out and get the fish and the stuff for it.
So I told him he should only put one in there...rather it be male or female because it's only 3 gallons. Well he said he was thinking about getting two females. I tried telling him to have a sorority of about 6 females you need a bigger tank. He said oh well the pet store will tell me. And I just couldn't believe he was not listening to me.
He has fish experience with oscars but not with bettas at all. I referred him to this site to do some research but I think he's going to do what he wants. I wish there was more I could do. Has anyone else ever had an experience like this? It is just so frusturating.
