the other day my betta was looking kindof dejected after he made a bubble nest and received no mate >.<
it got me to thinking, he seemed really perky and active back when I was always interacting with him, and now that Ive gotten kindof busy with school and whatnot, he seems a little more down.
I'm not saying he's got depression or something ^-^;;
I just think some other fish would give him some company when I can't provide it.. he really likes interaction, exploring and stuff, some other fish around might be fun.
that being said,
the main point of the board ^-^; :
his home tank is a five gallon, cycled, heated to around 75 and higher, some plants, etc. ^-^;
my mom really likes neon tetras, and wants some of her own, so while I can't convince her on too many things, she's in the boat on this one. I don't know a lot about neon tetras, but I do know lots of people on here have them with their bettas,
so to you guys, do you think this would be a suitable environment? ^-^
also what do you suggest for feeding time? as I don't know if they'll eat the betta food or want something else, and I don't want the betta eating their food, or them eating the betta's food >.<
any tips are really welcome ^-^ thanks guys <3
ohh. one more thing. if it's acceptable, how many can live in here, if you take my betta into account? if anyone enjoys answering questions I've got loads more I'd love to ask x3 I won't mob them on here though ^-^; thanks :D
his nature if needed, is pretty docile and baby-like from what I've seen. he's head-butted my fingernail before, but i think it was cause he thought it was food >.< he never bugs my hand when it's fully in the tank.
