Hi there. As some of you know, I had a thread about my Betta Pigg and it turns out he has fin rot. Now, over the last few days (before I found out he was sick) I was thinking of getting a second Betta- a gorgeous half-moon plakat with a white face, an aqua body and white fins with gold running in them. My problem:
Pigg is now sick and I want to devote all my time to him. I had been planning on putting the new Betta into my friend's 5g tank (which she said I could permanently keep today), but it is now being used as Pigg's QT. I COULD get the new Betta and keep him in a 1g until Pigg is better, hopefully in a 1-3 week period, then put the new Betta in the 5g after a 100% water change. In the small tank I can't provide a heater, but I can place it in between my 10g and my QT, if that would be acceptable.
This is the most beautiful Betta I have ever seen (not that I don't think every Betta is beautiful and that I don't love Pigg anymore) and I would hate for him to go into the hands of some of the numskulls in my town, who just keep the fish in the little cups.
Do you guys think it's a good idea to get him?
