I learned that the PWC for a not even 1/2G is the same for a 5G. Just need to change half of it once a week. And that's coming from a LPS employee that has lots of bettas that she puts in these not even 1/2G tanks and hangs them up in her kitchen.

I learned that a betta doesn't need a heater because fish are cold-blooded.

*facepalm*

I learned that my LPS employees aren't about to listen to me telling them that these three females are actually PK ("short-finned," for their simple minds XD) males and that's why they're flaring at the other males. Not because "females sometimes flare at males."

Yes, females flare, I had a flaring female myself. But they don't have the same fin shape as PKs, which these obviously were.

I just love how that sentence refutes itself. I've never heard something so stupid....

Nvm I have. This is still hilarious though. =P

I learned that there's no reason to need a 10-gal for 2 betta, and that I could just put them into the same 2.5 gal that my boy was living in.

Yeah. Uhm, no. Especially since it's a M/F pair, and I have no desire to breed them. They just share my divided 10-gal. :D

I learned that a plastic bowl that looks like a giant wine glass is fine and that bettas will be fine in a small tank full of guppies. (Poor guy-they actually had a betta in their guppy tank) I also learned that you should do a water change about once every two months.

The wine glass tank actually sounds kind of cool to me. My family has a bar in the house (it's our gathering spot), and I could see bringing Armand out to socialize for a little bit in one. Akasha's currently on my bad side, so no cocktail hour for her. I wouldn't suggest it for the longterm, though. That'd be sad.

Poor little betta. :( Was he okay, or was he running away from them? I hope his fins weren't torn to shreds.

Yeah, it was kind of pretty. The betta in the guppy tank was sort of slowly moving-a bit lethargic. His fins looked fine, but who knows how long he was in there?
lol what did Akasha do?
