few fish or more room?
Hi, my fiancee is trying to salvage her fish bowl(s) situation. She has just a single danio (plus a beta) and a single tetra in two bowls. Now, we have learned they should be in schools for both danios and tetras, but there just isn't room since the bowls are really just sufficient for the fish she has. Now, getting a tank is NOT an option, so please don't suggest it. What I would like to know is would it be good to buy one more danio and one more tetra for their respective bowls? I know it isn't a "school" but wouldn't it be better if they weren't alone? In a nutshell, would it be better to leave them alone with a bit more space, or have a companion but cramped living space? Thanks in advance!
Ok, thanks for well... nothing. The fish are hers, she cannot take them back (the store won't accept them even for no money back), and no one wants them. So, she can't re home them. The beta is perfectly fine in the 3 gallon bowl and she changes the water regularly and it is warm enough.
I agree with Drama, you don't seem like you have much option at the moment. Just make sure to keep everything clean and well fed. If you need another bowl (2ish gallons) Ross has some really cool cheap 2-3 gallon bowls that would work ok if you need a little more room. I think i got mine for like $8. and they don't take up much room. But if you keep an eye on them and watch them, then thats all you can do at the moment. If they are really starting to have a problem or are miserable, they will let you know
You better have a filter and a heater. No questions asked. I cannot stress that enough. Water being 'warm enough' is not an option. A heater only costs $10-$15 for that tank size, and this makes the water temperature at 80-82F (which is ideal for the tetra and betta) and stable. Filter is also needed. Look up the Azoo Palm Filter/Red Sea Nano filter. Very good filters for tanks up to five gallons, and cheap too.
