So I'm thinking about dividing my 10 gallon. It used to be divided for a while and Cassanova used to love making huge bubblenests for his girl Diva
. When Diva died though, I was having so many aquarium problems at once that I didn't want to get any more fish for a while and I just took the divider out and let Cassanova have the whole tank.
However, I watch my fish a LOT and Cassanova really is my least active betta. In fact he hardly swims around at all and prefers to rest on his plant, swim a bit, then rest on another plant. No, there's nothing wrong with him, I blame it on his fins which have grown to be quite huge especially since he's a HM
. So I think he'd probably be happier with a new girlfriend than the extra space which he doesn't use anyway.
The best part is that I found a new 5 gal tank on craigslist that is a complete acrylic tank set and comes with everything! It's perfect and at $25 OBO the price is right! Now I just need to convince my rather skeptical parents that they should bring me to get it
. I mean, it will cost me more to replace the heater for my QT tank which broke a while back...not to mention I will use the tank to house another betta after I use it to QT the new betta for Cassanova's tank.
So what do you think? It's not too mean to downsize Cassanova's territory right...especially since he hardly uses it at all? I mean, my others zip around all the time but he just seems too lazy to want to use the entire tank.
