erm...

you guys are gonna hate me for doing this but...
i put red velvet into fish timeout in a 3 way breeder cage. D:
he was just being a big BULLY. he kept trying to push these little fish away. i even saw one of my fishes have a big red thing on his head.
I HAD TO DO THIS. >.< i hope to release him before halloween.
even my glofish started to spread out! they're not even in groups anymore.. D:

(btw, THE GLOFISH ARE TOTALLY FINE WITH HIM! they don't fight. maybe a few tiny nips in awhile, but they're ok.)

I agree some just like living solo. Others just take a while to get used to their tankmates.

Hopefully he will adapt to the tankmates, but like others have said, some are happier alone.

Glofish are bright bright colors! Your betta might consider them a threat, even if they don't have the long fins, but hey! They are bright and might attract females better than him! So he's getting territorial! Some guys just never relax, some do.. If he doesn't then he might just need his own place!

There is nothing wrong with betta time out. I've used it on one of my girls and I'm planning on using it on another girl lol.

Yeah, some bettas definitely want to be alone. I thought my guys would like tank mates, but not a single one of them do.
