So, i have a friend who has a love for animals, but doesn't really...research before she gets them. She had a 10 gallon tank (not cycled :( ) that she had two catfish in, a ghost fish and something else. But her land lord came in and told her she was not allowed to have a fish tank. So she put them in a two gallon bowl with a pump, no filter.
and for some reason we can't find a pet store that will accept them back (she can't remember where she got them) and the closest place is over 100 miles away that will accept them.
I personally have 2 5gallon tanks that each contain 1 betta. they have a filter and everything they need. She said that she would give the cat fish to me if i wished. My only problem is i can't have a bigger tank. and im not sure if they are Cory's or Otos... (need to look that up some more) they are about 1.5 inches and .75 inch.
My tanks have been going for about a year , so by now i suspect that have cycled. (when i go back over to the city i need to grab a tester)
Would it be ok for me to adopt these fish, at least till i find someoene with a bigger tank?' I really would like to get them out of the small bowl and my bettas don't seem to be overly agressive... what do you think? im afraid they wouldn't make the hundred mile trip... but i don't want ot put them in a worse situation either
