Hmm... what should I do guys? I have one of my bettas, Rocket in a 10 Gall by himself. I want to divide his tank so I can shower another betta with love (more like feed my obsession) but I can't decide if I should divide it half, or go for 3 sections :/ I really want a CT at my LFS, but I've also had an eye on my petco's Doubletails :/

Yuuie, I don't think a common housefly can hurt him. In the wild, they eat anything they can catch. I bet he was a happy betta after eating that fly.

Erin - Hmm. That IS a dilemma. I just divided my 10g and each betta has plenty of space. I'm not sure if a 3 way would provide enough swimming room. You could divide the one 10g in half and get the doubletail in there and then put the CT in with the endlers and panda corys.

Hmm that does sound tempting! I had Marsh in with the endlers, but they ate his food and he hid behind the heat most of the time. If I got a study crowntail who wouldn't let himself get pushed around it could work, but I would fear him going on a killing spree. Maybe I'll get him and if it doesn't work out, I have an excuse for a new 3 gall!

I got curious and looked up some tanks on youtube. Do you think that's big enough for them, or would they be unhappy :/ They would probably be happier if it was divided in half, but gah, I'm just too addicted! :C

Just needed to stimulate his hunting instinct, I guess.

Well, aside from the fact that the camera jiggling made me seasick , I think it could work out. There's not a WHOLE lot of room but there's enough for them to swim around. As long as they have enough room to swim several body lengths worth, it's supposed to be enough room. You could try it and get the 3 gallon to have on hand "just in case."

What do you feed your panda corys? I'm hoping to get some soon for my 10g.

most likely since when one gets near his tank and lands on the outside of it he stalks it and tries to get it through the plastic. i just hope he doesn't try to jump out at it and land in my coffee cup which i don't think he likes at all.
