Talking Didn't think betta were so darn addicting.

First, I want to thank those of you who replied to my last post.
You guys were a big help. :]

Okay.
Haven't had Cisco all that long, and I'm already buying new fish.
Went out today and got another gorgeous fish.
He's pretty much all red, a little white and black at the end of his tail.
If I can manage a few good pictures of them, I'll post them up.

Should be moving Cisco and my new un-named fish into my aquarium within the week. Just waitin' for pay-day so I can go all out and buy the stuff they need.. >>

I'm curious, would a home-made plexiglass divider work? I know someone who could make me one.
Or would it be better to buy a pre-made one from the store?
Also, a couple of days ago I noticed Cisco's fin was a little curled at the tip.
Is that something I should be worried about?

I think a home made plexiglass divider would work fine as long as it's secure and the fish can't get through it or over it or around it.

God they are addicting arent they, I started with one to help "cycle" my tank. Now I have 3 and looking at 3-4 more, if only they didnt fight Id have an infinite amount.

But yes the divider would work fine, make sure its tall enough so they cant jump it. You could use silicon to secure it if you need and maybe drill little holes in it so water can pass back and forth.

I know. I'd just planned on having one[Cisco] but I went to the pet shop the other day to buy him a different kind of food, cause he wouldn't touch the kind I have been giving him[most of the time], and they had some betta's on display. I couldn't resist buying another one.
Sadly, I think Cisco and my new un-named fish will be the only two I get, unless I buy another aquarium. I have another one sitting in my closet but it's doesn't hold water. Sadly

Ah, yeah. The friend who said he could make a divider for me mentioned drilling holes in it for that reason. :3
I hope to get them set up in their new home soon. They'd probably like it better than the vase's I have them in now. x3

Yah I thought mine would be the only one. But then I found a nice $10 10g tank. Then a $1 10g tank and I just keep buying. I spent my last $100 or more on these little guys.

I have no idea how much I've spent the last few months on fis related stuff and all the extra food for my picky female.

My betta's fins were curled and so I started using softer water. I changed pretty recently, but it does seem to be helping.
However, I don't think its really a big problem. It just doesn't look quite as nice (as far as I know, at least. I'm no expert.)
