Talking I got ANOTHER new betta LOL

The first step is admitting you have a problem right??
I also got a guppy.. but here's my problem.. he won't eat the pellets... my betta keeps eating them. now i have to get flakes (i have NO idea which ones by the way) and hope my betta doesnt eat the flakes AND the pellets.
Genesis is the blue and red one and Stormy is the black and white marble





^ That is Genesis <3

and THIS is my new marble, black and white (such a dark blue in the light! its impossible to show the beauty in a picture seriously!)

That would be because guppies are a very poor choice for tank mates for bettas... males will almost always mistake a male guppy for another betta and attack. Your best bet would be either get the guppy its own tank or take it back to the store, honestly.. you won't be able to keep it with the betta.

That marble boy is very handsome, though, nice find.

If you have a place for him to live in, just keep his water clean and warm and within a few weeks he should regrow what's missing. My Nettle is a chronic tail biter.. the original damage from when I had gotten him had healed when he decided to bite all of his fins (I'm talking everything. Literally every fin on his body). He looks more like a plakat than a halfmoon right now, but I already see new growth coming in. It just takes time.

Also, if the guppy is on his own you won't have to worry about his food being stolen.. you can try feeding him a high-protein diet to help spur growth.


edit; Cool! I live up in Kent.. my dad used to drive down to New Britain when he worked for CL&P.
