Ok, so silly as it sounds I've fallen in love with fancy guppies! I never stop watching their gorgeous colors and flowing tails when I'm at PetSmart.
I'm looking for some opinions. A friend of mine is giving me a 1 gallon tank with a filter. I've never used such a small tank, but was thinking of putting my son's betta (this tank has a light-up volcano, so he really wants it) in it.
1) Do you think a one gallon is ok for a Betta? Not my first choice, but our betta doesn't really move around the tank he's in now. I'm just not sure.
2) If I give the Betta the 1 gallon, I want to set up a guppy tank with my 3 gallon. How many guppies can happily live in a 5 gallon? Due to their constant breed, I thought more females than males. If I don't plan on breeding them can I just allow them to consume the babies? :P (yuck)
3) I always- ALWAYS buy my fish at my LFS, however; they do not carry guppies. What do you think my luck will be obtaining healthy fish from PetSmart or Petco?
As always, thank you for your opinions!
