Don't put them together because the Betta will usually torture the goldfish until it dies. When i bought a goldfish from petco and put it with my Betta, it was killed within three days.

That goldfish is HUGE!
The other night I had a dream of raising a goldfish that became so big it lived in an outdoor swimming pool, and it still wasn't big enough! LOL

She has been convinced!!!!! She is no longer interested in keeping them together, THANK GOD! I don't know what happened, but it didn't take nearly as much explaining as I thought. I think her fish may have gotten in a bit of a fight and she didn't want to tell me. Either way, the fish are a lot safer now. But I still need to work on her about the goldfish needing a bigger tank! Jeez, its gonna take a while!

Lumeril - I can't believe someone just stole your tank! Thats horrible! I don't understand how people can do things like that!

babyk - I have told her that, unfortunately that was when she brought the "my friend has had a goldfish since November" excuse. I will keep at it though, I think the fact that one of them dying has shaken her a little.

vaygirl - I would love to have a fish live fourty years old! Although, it would be heartbreaking losing the fish to old age eventually. You know, more attached to it because it lived for so long. :(

Arashi Takamine - Aw, thats horrible! Poor little goldies! I've told her about the pet stores only wanting to make a sale. She is still innocent-minded and believes they are saying the truth for the pets welfare. She doesn't know what type it is, just that its a goldfish -_-"

My cousin has a goldfish (used to be two, one died - no surprise) in a one gallon bowl (I know its too small, I keep telling her that but she won't listen). And she has two bettas, both in their own 1 gallon bowls, Marina and Samoa.

She wants to put her goldfish and one of her betta (i don't know which, the girl or the boy) together. She has an empty ten gallon tank.

I know nothing about goldfish. But from what I can gather, goldfish and bettas can't be together mainly because of their temperature needs. Is this correct? Are there other reasons for this, because my cousin won't listen to just one reason? Bettas are also fin nippers in general, so wouldn't they nip at the fins of the goldfish.

I think she is planning either:
-goldfish and betta together in 10 gallon
or
-goldfish and betta SORORITY

-_-"

She isn't listening to my advice, please give me some backup on this.
Since I've gotten into the betta hobby she has decided to follow, not listening to all of my advice. Because I recently made a sorority, she has decided SHE wants one now. PLEASE HELP. I am afraid for these fish.
hey why don't make her sighn up on here I'll give whatever she needs to know to her. She sounds like she would be a great fishkeeper when she finaly listens to you.

Hehe, I don't think age is a bad thing, as Ethan is 12 and I'm 13, so we are both in middle school (at least I am) anyways....

She does have an account on here. LOL

Wouldn't exactly want her to see this thread though.... :P
She's only been on here once or twice. I don't think she understands/cares that much about this website. :/
