I thought i'd read up quite a lot since purchasing the fish but it seems there's nothing better than experience, so I appreciate the quick responses!

Why is it that they can't be kept together? they wont fight, will they? I've been going on advice of friends who were supposed to be experienced keepers, and staff at aquatics stores! I didn't intend on making such a rookie mistake but then again it doesn't help when you're given differing accounts of what fish can be housed with what =/
I see how you could have made he mistake. Don't worry we here at bettafish.com are all here to help. Well the reason they cannot be together is be aide without he required breeding set up. They will fight or stress another out to death by constantly chasing and nipping. I would suggest if you do decide to keep the females together, you need to have at least 4 females in one tank . Three is not a good number because the other two will gang up on the weakest one in the tank.

I would also suggest that you only separate the male since it would be just him intend of puttin the three females in a different tank, just move him to that tank.

by the by, i know the tank is tiny, my bad! since its so late i didn't have time to go to petsmart and buy him a decent one (the pet store where i bought him is madly overpriced in tanks/other equipment) so i just put him in an extra tiny tank i had already in the house. but dont fret, i'll get him a nice home tomorrow :)

O.O Soooooo I went to a custom aquarium shop I haven't been before to look for female HM and since they had none I left with another male XD I found out a local breeder is selling them there and the shop owner got me in contact with him so I can buy a few of his females, if I get any I'll post them here.


And of course I pick the only Betta with fin rot XD but I liked him the most, there was also a platinum dragon and a orange Betta but I was a sucker for this dude.


So this guy looks really different with flash, so first no flash


With flash, his irridesemce goes kinda crazy lol
