btw, the new betta i got, just today, has mild fin rot, AND is living in a 1 gallon until i can get him a 2.5 gallon. not my choice, but it was all i had at the moment. easy to fix, so i'm not stressing.
also, dude. puppies need your attention DAILY, like.... every moment you can give them. shove them outside their first few weeks with you, and you're going to have a mess on your hands. both Bear, and Beu, were inside dogs the first few years of their lives, and Bear was Chow Chow and German Shepard dog mixed. BIG boy, from the time he was a puppy, till he passed at age 11. dogs are social creatures who NEED a pack, be it with humans or dogs. deprive them of that, and you're going to have either a hyper dog, or an aggressive dog.
