So here it goes... I got a female betta- Sally (I don't know how my daughter comes up with these names :) and another male. He is now in my office and I think everybody is thinking I am the crazy fish lady. Sally is in our community 30gal and after being very shy for a couple of days (skittish, clamped fins) she is now bossing the other fish around. The male (nameless yet- any suggestions?) had a very slight beginning of fin rot, so I treated him with salt baths and Maracyn. I felt sorry for him and really got him because of his unique color and because I could see he was getting sick :(
He is moving to a 2.5 gal on my shelf in the office tomorrow.
I must be crazy. No more. (fingers crossed)
If only I hadn't had these spare containers...
