Sorry if this does not go in this section, we can move it if it doesn't fit.
So a hypothetical Question. I have my two baby Bettas (who I'm 99.9 certain they are both boys as I am seeing no ovaries, but who know what will come of it!) they are both being housed in a split 3 gallon.
Well it was split, but since Steve is a magical fish who can apparently phase through the divider, I had to put him in his 1 gallon critter keeper which is floating in the 3 gallon with Tony.
Now they can see each other perfectly, and as expected both are stressed. But is it possible (and this is hypothetical) that they would get used to each other eventually? I mean, I would never house them together, but if they stayed side by side with perfect views of each other?
I know that in a split situation Betta's normally flare for about 2 weeks and then settle down after that, but I was just thinking about Steve and Tony growing up next to each other if that would have any effect on them other can being super stressed out or anything?
Steve alternates between stress stripes in the morning and then the rest of the day he's got vertical stripes which I am assuming they are just submission stripes and not actual breeding stripes since they aren't of age anyway. He also colors up insanely well with his vertical stripes and then fades with stress stripes. I assume that's normal as well?
Anywho, yeah, just a hypothetical question here and of course if they both turn out to be males as well.
Oh I just thought of something else, will they be effected if one happens to be girl and one happens to be boy other than one getting egg bound when they mature?
