betta coccina

I might have accidentally purchased one of these little guys when I was intending to buy more female b. splendens. I'm intrigued by them, but I'm not sure i can provide a great home for it since it's not, well, b. splendens, and i don't really think it's supposed to live with b. splendens.

my water is very soft and acidic though. I could easily house the b. coccina in a 1 gallon tank, and perhaps later on find it a mate and put the pair in a 5 gallon (as i've read is sufficient on a couple of other websites).

Does anyone have any recommendations for this particular species? i wasn't intending to get this little guy. I might even return it later in the week (but i'm already a little attached. whoops ;) )

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
