Became a new betta owner today! So happy! I already have a large tank that contains Angel Fish, Gourami etc but been contemplating owning a betta fish for a while, not that I don't know how to care for them, just did I have time for a second tank.
But I finally gave in, got a 40 litre tank, cycled it for a few weeks which took some patience on my part
well been cycled for about a week now and went to the store today and saw the prettiest Red Betta swimming around and shared his tank with about 10 Harlequin Rasbora.
So he's living with a school of 5 Harlequin Rasbora, plenty of live plants for hiding and seems pretty docile for a betta, guess I was lucky lol
He has no name yet and don't have pics right now as I'm letting all of the settle as my betta seems happy but seems a little shy so has a swim around back his plant and repeats the process
I live in the UK and heard about how Petco look after their Bettas :( luckily for me, local store has gorgeous tanks for them and not those horrible cups :(
