Oh I continued this topic on my old thread called Betta Blindness just so as not to overtake this thread any more. Here I talk about the conditions of how I think I blinded Alejandro :

Thank you, Tabbie! I got her and Arktik (purple/blue cambodian) and I was getting yelled at the whole time. "No more fish!" Pfft ... Never! xD I'm really glad I was able to snag her. I would love to see a close up of Feng though.

I think any store that cannot properly care for the fish should not sell them. Luckily, we're all here, giving our bettas these beautiful homes and taking time to learn the correct way to treat them.

@Kiara1125- You are welcome! You can never have too many fish! I think there is a close up of Feng in my photo album, if you want to check it out.

My Betta's and Tanks! :D

The First one is a 5.5g tank with Redgie and a Snail named Glow that's turning into a monster. o-o

Second is the new Betta I got yesterday named with some Birthday money in a 5g tank. His name is Denim because he's the exact color of blue jeans. Do you think his tank needs a cave?

Alejandro is blind so I didn't put any rocks or driftwood .. . most things are soft in there and I hope the dwarf hairgrass will grow in after a while. I made a bunch of moss balls too, some floating and some sinking kind. Everything was just made so that is why you can still see the mesh, etc. The water I add has IALeaves soaking in it so the water is a little bit tea colored. We have amazingly hard water here in Tucson AZ so I try to soften it. There's a heater of course and I am using an Aquaclear 30 instead of the filter it came with.
Removing the rim might not be a wise thing to do. The rim is designed to give the tank added support from the pressure the water gives. However, in a smaller tank, it might not be too bad. But I would rather not take the risk.

Well, obviously nothing has happened so far and she's doing everything right so far. Everything seems fine. For instance, people yell at me for having my 20gL on a piece of fake wood that's less than an inch thick. I've had it set up for a year now and it once held two 10g tanks. It has three triangle brackets and can hold a total of 300lbs, so it also holds my Bose radio system. My fish like to listen to my music, it seems. Still, I'm just pointing out that you can do things to a tank and make sure that everything is ok.

I currently only have 2 tanks set up!! Lowest number I've had in years, it feels really weird to have such a small number of fish! I do plan on setting my 10 gallon back up soon and dividing it 3 ways, but that won't be for another month or so, need to save up money for all new gravel and decorations!

Here is my divided 5.5 gallon


Encore's side of the tank


and Apollo's side of the tank



and my 30 gallon sorority
