Well, good luck to you as females are known to jump. Hopefully, if she hasn't yet, she won't.

Hmmm... I never had any jumping bettas. but I just dangled some food above the waterline and she did jump rather high... I will look for something clear or made of glass around my house and see if I can find something suitable to cover it. My 2.5 gallon tank is covered but only because that fish is my pride and joy and I am taking NO risks lol.

You shouldn't take risks with ANY of your fish. Aren't they ALL worth the best care and safety that you can provide?

Where did you get your dividers from? Or what brand are they? I need to get a 20L or rig up my 30L for my boys. All in 10g divided tanks now.

Sorry, I didn't mean to insinuate that one fish is worth less than another. They are all special in their own way ^^ I just didnt think she would be a jumper as she's never done it before. Anyways, I found a clear sheet of plastic to use a cover till She moves into the 2.5 gal. Will cut it to size tomorrow so it looks nicer.

PS: She's in July's photo contest posing as Jaws :)

I thought rules were posted before about forum behavior? No need of jumping all over someone guys. State your case, and it's up to the owner to take the advice or not. Jezz guys!

Love everyones tanks, but I really love pecktec's!

And we don't have a heater in Ben's tank, I bought one and turned it on and it nearly cooked my fish! I am buying another tomorrow and putting the old one in the box and sending it back haha But our boys been doing ok, and it's Atlantic Canada here.

Sounds like a plan! Just make sure you have some air holes in there for the girl. :)
