A couple weeks ago I took my lone female betta that I’ve had for about a year from a 3.5 gallon tank to a 5.5 gallon tank and added a danio as a tank mate. I felt like my betta was hiding a lot more than normal and showing signs of stress. I was also super paranoid about starting down the community tank lane. I did some research and contributed the stress to the new filter flow and rigged a soap dish under the filter output to slow the water current. Both fish seem to be happier, the danio is always swimming out in the open. I still can’t tell if my betta is still hiding more or if I’m just paranoid. The danio possibly nipped my betta in the first week during feeding time but it mostly just bounces off or swims around my betta. Is there anything I should be doing different? I still have my 2.5 gallon tank so if I needed to separate them I could.
