It's been awhile everybody...
Since my dear Janus has always been a lazy BETTA always toyed with the idea of trying out the taboo of two males living without a screen.
My dream crumbled within an hour... Magus didn't see it coming.
Magus, my new blue/metal (he's overly shiny) delta half-moon had been ignoring Janus (my shy large red double tail) and everything seemed fine for awhile when suddenly...
Janus grew a spine and slowly began shadowing Magus while flaring. The filter caught Janus' tail and threw him into Magus and... Well you can imagine the rest as several strips of blue fluttered down.
I got Magus out and put him into my new Goldfish tank *waves a hand defending* it's colder but my room is very warm and in the low 70s so temp is no issue with Tynamo and Thisby (my two snail eater goldfish lol). It's a 2gal hex tank with filter, I clean it every few days since I know goldies poop a lot.
So attack all you want but at least I tried *shrugs* I'm done with school for the winter so I thought I'd experiment.
Kinda wondering if maybe I broke them up too soon... *ponders* maybe Janus was just showing whose boss... *shrugs* I may try again eventually ... And don't call me cruel *chuckles* that was terrifying watching them interacting seemingly harmlessly for awhile... Hoping the first strike isn't for the head or eye. Anyway that's all that's new from my end...
Kinda frightening though how my lazy Janus turned into this prowler... His large black eyes just watching Magus... Slowly swimming up to him.
