Okay, I just set up a new tank....2.5 gallon, heated, with a cave thing and plants. He seems to really like the cave and to hang out by the heater.
I really want to get my little guy a friend, and the chick at the pet store suggested one. I can't remember the specific name, but it's something "shark"....it's black with a red tail. Not too big, semi-aggressive. She said that it'd stick up for himself if my betta picked on him.
Bad idea? I really want him to have a friend :(
(...not so much for his sake, but for mine, really)
(I have another plant that I could put in if you think I should...?)
And that's just a piece of construction paper behind the tank...there's a lot of clutter on my desk so I figured it looks nicer that way.
