Just curious, does anyone know how long can Bettas survive out of water? How about in the water without being able to gulp air on the surface?
Today when I came home from school I saw that Gloria was relaxing in a fold in the plastic i put over Felix's net to prevent him from jumping into the tank. The plastic was draped a little over his net so it was close to the top, but the plastic would have prevented her from being able to breathe. I quickly guided her back out and tucked the plastic inside his net instead. She didn't seemed upset or shocked so I guess she had just recently swam in there. That's why I'm curious about breathing, I was worried she might do it again while I'm not home. :/
