What is that on the bottom of the marina tank you had before? Is it a little catfish?

If so, how did it work out having two live fish in that one little tank.

Want to get a pal for Bizz, but IDK if the bioload would be too much, even with everyother day water changes. Or if there would be enough room for them.

Yeah thats my little oto Wasabi. The first few minutes Sushi was a little huffy, but then...no problem at all. I did 50% water changes every day and 100% every 3 days. It was tedious but ok.

I'm really not super worried about the lid. Sushi never jumps....didnt jump in the cube...

The lid is mainly for precaution. It's not uncommon to hear "My betta jumped out!" It's much safer to do it now, rather than wait later. Neither of my betta jump, but I don't take the risk, even if I would prefer a lid-less tank.

I'm just trying to think of a way to make a lid out of netting. One that will have slits for bamboo, while mainting a very zen like state. I'm hitting Home Depot and Lowes tomorrow to get some molding to stain black so it will cover the plastic rims...give it a decorative look as well.

Oh... my... GOD!

You got me gushing like a school girl!

I never thought I could house more than Bizz in my half gallon marina, and knowing that u kept an oto in yourz is just a kewl lift off my shoulders.

I plan on upgrading, but i just dont think bizz has to be alone even though he is in a half gallon.

thanks

As a lot of people say, 1/2 gal cubes will work with constant water changes. I've heard sometimes that some males just wont like to deal with any tank mates...and otos are a toss up.

Yeah, I figured. For whatever reason I was under the impression that algae wafers were not an adequate substitution.
