It was bound to happen, I finally have my first long term boy with special needs. Kris has still not recovered from SBD (he's a floater) so we're looking into a tank for him that will give him the best quality of life. I was right in suspecting it was a breeder default, as his spawn sibling Jack is also a picky eater and will float but he has the ability to unblock and recover. Two boys that were to be taken care of and rehomed ended up being my first two permanents because no one would want a Betta with their issues!
So.. for a Betta that can't leave the top of the water... give me some ideas on a tank that it suitable for him. Any neat ideas? I've given him a home made hammock but he's more content to rest on IAL leaves. Jack has a hammock and loves to use it.
I guess we're looking for something shallow but larger but not an overly large tank. I was thinking of a divided 5g so Kris would have more space but lower water, but Jack has great days where he loves to swim so that's not an option. Ideas? Right now I have him in a 1.5g Tetra and there is so much wasted space :(
