Hi. I just bought my betta female fish yesterday. Both appear healthy, and seem to be eating fine.
When I asked the woman at the store if I could house two females together, she answered yes.
After registering for this website, I've read females need to be housed in groups of four or more in order to create a pecking order. I am now extremely worried.
My pair seem to be getting along OK right now.
Yesterday one female (greeny pink) kept flaring at the other female (dark blue). I kept a very close eye on them, and quickly they appeared to become friends. They would take turns chasing each other around, they ate together, and would just chill next to each other.
They made it through the night fine. This morning the dark blue female was swimming around fine. Nothing out of the ordinary. The greeny pink female won't swim around freekly, she stays at the bottom.
Please help me. Don't yell at me, this is my first time, and I am doing the best I can.
