- set up another 10 gal for the bettas and leave the loaches where they are;
- put the bettas in the 25 gal and leave the loaches where they are.
Setting up another 10 gal would require me to buy another filter and another heater, and cash is a little tight right now. If anything goes in the 25 gal I need to buy a heater (previously had coldwater species in it). The loaches have been in their current 10 gal tank for about 5 years and have NEVER given me trouble; I'm worried that moving them will stress them out too much. I really love those little eely guys and don't want anything to happen to them. But I need to get my bettas into a suitable home. What do you guys think I should do? I'm caught between a rock and a hard place.
I have no clue about Betta ANYTHING, as I have never cared for bettas, but i do have a kuhli loach and I dont see any reason why you would have to move them at all...It seems easier for you to just leave them where they are...im sure the bettas would leave them alone, provided they have plants and hiding places?
