Well guys - Icarus isn't an Icarus anymore lol I've been watching since I got him for ovaries, and there's been a see through area behind his stomach, but nothing ever there... until today. Bright yellow ovaries grew in quite literally overnight lol So... I guess I have a lady fish on my hands now! A couple of questions with that.

1. She shares a split tank with Yoshi, who is absolutely 100% male lol will that cause any problems? Should I play musical tanks and switch her out with one of the other boys?

2. What should I name her?

Thanks everyone :)

Tiffany- as long as they are getting along it works fine As for names, I don't know what she looks like so I don't know how to help. I've always wanted to name a female betta "Cherry Blossom" because it is such a pretty Japanese flower, but I don't know if that name will fit your little girl. You are free to use it if it does and you like it

As long as they get along it shouldn't be a problem, unfortunately I'm bad at names, sorry.

They don't necessarily need to get along. But yes males and females can live together in a divided tank. She may get eggy often when she's sexually mature but that won't hurt her. She'll expel the eggs or reabsorb them ^_^ and likewise he will just build bubblenests all the time and try to get her to come to his side haha. But nothing will hurt them.

If you get me some pics I should be able to help out.

Darn it! I want one so bad! *sigh* But here's a thought, out of sheer curiosity is it possible to put two together in the same tank if they're young enough? I would never ever put two adults together, but I'm a tad curious about the babies. Or are they too old by the time they get to the shop?

*guh* I want one and my local petco always has tons of DT babies in stock. I can tell because they have that distinctive divide.

I think they may be too old by the time they're in the store, or they would be very soon after you put them in the tank. My little guy is feisty even at his small size, I'd be afraid to try that.

Yeah they're too old by that point. If they had never been separated in the first place they could spend nearly two more months together but once you separate them, all bets are off. Same goes for Sorority girl's, if you ever take one out completely, if you want to put her back in you have to reintroduce her all over again with her floating in a cup in the tank for a few more day's until everyone's used to her again.

EDIT: however, if two babies happened to get into the same side of the tank they generally won't kill each other. They will play fight and flare but either way, it's not good to chance it anyway because you could get very aggressive one that wants to kill everything and then you'd only have one baby...yeah

It's such a shame you can't have two males together. They're so pretty.

Has anyone gotten an actual halfmoon out of one of these? That's really the only temptation for me honestly, is the thought of getting one for like two dollars instead of like... 15-25. They're kinda expensive at my pet shop here.

You can keep them together in a divided tank, just not on one side is all. But they'll do fine sharing a divided tank, almost all my males to

I think most of the babies are veiltails, but TiffanyP's little Yoshi is looking like he'll be a Superdelta, maybe a halfmoon!
