Hi! I have been thinking about getting 1 or more Baby Bettas from Petco.

I would like to get 2, & see how they coexist, to prepare me for breeding.

I have 3 tanks, a 1 gal corner, a 3 gal tall, & a 1.5 gal. I would put them in the 3, & keep the water level lower so they can breathe. I have an air bump & the 3 has built in airline tubing that runs to the bottom of the tank & then bubbles, & plenty of silk plants.

If I did get 2, should I quarantine them before putting them together?
If I need to, I might have 1 be in the tank, & 1 in a cup floating in the tank, & alternate them each day & night. What do you think? I am really excited, I hope this would work.


Would artificial (silk) plants be okay?
I might buy a marimo ball if someone has them for sale at a low price & good quality.... ;)
(the marimos at Petco are $9 apiece. :neutral: )

Please respond!!!
Thanks! :)

They should not be kept together. Baby bettas require more thorough care than adult bettas. They need really good food like NLS grow formula MUST be kept warm.. a little warmer than adults so 80-82ishF, 2 gallons minimum for sure and it is IMPERATIVE to keep ammonia to a zero, so I would do 50% water changes daily and 100% by day 3 or 4 in that size.
