Smile Hello from Oklahoma

Hello, my name is Toni and I am new to fish but have gotten a bit obsessed...so my co-workers say. I have 4 betta's (none together), 3 male guppies in their own tank for now because one attacked and killed three of my neons; and I also have 4 neons and 5 glow fish in another tank. I am about to upgrade my 1 1/2 tank for my neons, glow fish, and guppies to be in to a 5 gallon and I think that will stop the aggression. Anywho I am off to read all I can read to have happy healthy fish and post questions as I have them if I don't find the answers.

Hi Toni

Welcome to the addiction - ummmm--- forum.

Did I read correctly that you have multiple fish in a 1-1/2 gallon tank???

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Yes, unfortunatly that is true. As soon as I read up I ordered bigger ones that will be here day after tomorrow. I listened to the Walmart fish person about it being okay because they are schooling fish they like tight quarters ugh.
