    Placed a piece of oak bark in the tank today with moss attached to it. I washed it first of course and tested the PH level. It looks awesome and it didn't seem to affect the PH balance much.. I also changed out two gallons of water again with treated water. Happy.. :)

    I hope not lol I only turn the filter on twice a day for about 45 min and use my net to clean up excees food & waste. As well as changing the water by 20 percent when it gets merky...this keeps my tank crystal. Both fish don't seem to like the the current of the power filter to much due to their long flowing fins...I put extra work into my tank to make sure things are well for them :) I can't wait to post videos and pics on here soon to show the relationship and condition of their tank.

    YEs but their requirments are different. Warm Water Fresh water Goldfish need stong filters Very strong and bettas need soft filters. They may get along now but they may show some signs of aqressiveness later on.

    Ideal water perimeters for Siamese Fighting Fish: 74 - 84 Degrees F. PH of 7.0
    Ideal water perimeters for Goldfish: 58 - 72 Degrees F. PH of 7.0
    My tank: 75 - 77 Degrees F (78 Degrees in the winter- heater)
    3 - 5 Degrees F. for a Goldfish is not extreame (6 degrees F. in the winter)

    As for their diets, they both have their own foods. As for the temp in the tank it isn't always at 78 Degrees. Goldfish are hardy addaptible fish..I'm not saying let's see how much he can take or nothing like that. The water usually stays at about 75 Degrees..Unless I'm taking out some water and cleaning.. The only thing is, that in the winter, I will have to get a heater for the tank for the Betta.. I'm not talkin 80 Degrees plus or anything just at about 78 Degrees F. That is not an extreame eviroment for a Goldfish.

    The Betta is doing fine..Today he built his bubble nest..and the goldfish is as happy as can be :) They don't even have a problem with eachother....the Betta is a dominant fish...which means he has to be the boss of his enviroment...the Fantail Goldfish, even though he has long flowing fins, dosn't seemed to get attacked or shown any type of agressivness torwards.. this might be because he has accepted the Veiltail Betta as the boss...The Goldfish dosn't want to dominate anything..just swim around & be happy..lol they're both in love with their own reflection in the tank ^_^

    hey, uhm are you planning on getting the goldfish in another container? Goldfish are coldwater fish, bettas are warmwater... In order to keep a goldfish you need cooler than 78 degree water... plus they have totally different diet needs.
