Platy needs to go?

So my last platy is slightly stressing my betta out (they are in the same 10G tank). I am considering selling or adopting him out. Should I? I really care about my fish and want what's best for them.

Platys and betta do not get along that well ime. Likely best to separate them. I would adopt the platy out myself. Good luck.

You could divide the tank so both get 5g.

If you only have one platy, it may help to get a couple more so the platy will leave your Betta alone and spend time with the other platies. Or you can adopt out the Platy/divide the tank.

Yeah, there were four platys but they all died and they all picked on Surf.
Thanks though.

That's a great idea, but today I am going to go get another betta and put him in the divided tank.
I just don't know what to do with Bumblebee.

If there are no other options, it may be best to see if someone else can take in your Platy.
