Yeah. I believe one can go in a 5g too. You can put a pair in a 10g. But they can't be mixed with bettas because they're the same family, anabantids. They'll beat each other up. Both have the labyrinth organ and breathe air from the surface.
You could try blanched veggies. Spinach and romaine lettuce are good but sometimes you have to get a veggie clip to anchor them to the tank wall. You could also try weighting it down with a rock. I've read that they'll supplement their diet by eating plants, though. And don't worry, my wisteria doesn't like me much either.
I think she eats normal flakes, but I try to feed her the green ones, if that makes any difference :P I'll look into them, do you think shed eat a blanched veggie? She tries to eat some of the floating Wysteria leaves sometimes. I don't think my Wisteria likes me very much.
That sounds like plenty of food. When she drops her spawn, cut back on the flakes for a few weeks since she'll be eating extra. Actually, since platies need a high veggie requirement in the diet, what I recommend is you feed her veggie flakes (I use Omega One Veggie Flakes but you could use Tetra VegMin) and then the one FD bloodworm a day. That would balance her diet out.
Yup, it's going to be hard but I'll let her eat them. I will not, however, distribute some of them to Diablo -_- do you think 5 small flakes( 3 in the morning, 2 at night) and 1 FD bloodworm a day is enough for her? I normally wouldn't feed her bloodworms everyday, but one has like 66% protein 0.0 I fed a little to diablo and he h
got all happy :D
