No, no, no.. bad bad idea. It may seem fine now but eventually you'll have big problems. Male/female tanks are a big no no for Betta splendens. If you want to keep males and females together look into some of the wild species. You can keep females together in sororities of 6 or more but males need to be kept separate. They may seem fine now but I'll guarantee you your fish are extremely stressed out by this situation.

Percy seems to eat everything I put in there, but I'm not trying to put too much at a time. Advice?
A betta's stomach is the size of his eye. Feed your pellets accordingly. I feed 2 pellets twice a day. Remember that pellets swell once they are saturated with water which is why so many bettas have constipation issues.. being over fed in addition to the pellets expanding.

I saw where someone had a clever idea about how to crimp an air flow hose in a pinch and I have forgotten what they did. I will be getting a regulator in the very near future, but I want to slow the flow down now. I tried the search function, but can't find the thread I am thinking of. Does anyone have any good tips?

Vaygirl says to tie a knot in the air tubing to slow the flow, you can loosen or tighten the not to create the level of air flow you want.

Thanks that sounds like a great idea. I tried clothespins to no avail.

Nutrafin betta bites, hikari gold pellets, full spectrum growth (or something like that, I dunno what it's exactly called)

Basically, look for fish or shrimp meal as the first ingredient in the fish food.

I actually got that knot tip when I looked up using the drip method for acclimating my corys. It works really well for airstones too. I have to tie a pretty tight knot for Whiskey's tank. I don't know how ANY air gets through. :P

IMO, Omega One Betta Buffet Pellets and New Life Spectrum. The New Life Spectrum has a betta formula, but I use their Surface Feeder formula.

Both have whole fish and/or krill as the first ingredients & that's what you want, IMO/E. ABSOLUTELY stay away from anything that has wheat as a first ingredient!!!!
