I first off wanted to start by saying I am very new to this hobby and have found that this forum is by far the best one I have found. I have one male betta and one platy. They have been togethor for nearly twenty four hours and they seem to be alright togethor (at times).
However, when I checked on them earlier today, I found that the platy has a nice little U-shaped chunk missing from his tail. The only suspect being the betta (since there are no other tank mates). The guy at the fish store told me that they would work well togethor.
I'm not sure what I should do to solve this problem. I dont know if getting a second platy woud solve the problem, however, my tank may not be big enough for that.
I can watch them as the betta slow harasses and stalks the platy. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
