I started off with one female Betta fish from PETCO and kept it at my job.
My boss fell in love with the little fishie and named her Betty. He insisted that Betty get a friend so we got Bert the Betta and a divider for the tank. Bert seemed to be constantly annoyed by Betty she tended to tease him and hed attempt to get through the divider to attack her. It was so cute. These simple little fish brought happiness to a very stressful job and made my boss happy which was a plus
We currently have a 2 and a half gallon tank, and filter and some kind of underwater Betta plant.
We determined that the cause of death was overfeeding because she was bloated.
Were a little confused because the container of Tetra Betta food said to feed her everyday
We plan on getting a new pet Betta for Bert my questions are:
1) whats the correct amount of food to feed a Betta
2) Are there any other marine critters that can get along with Bettas
3) I saw a baby Betta fishie at a pet store, it was incredibly tiny and i was wondering if these are hard to care for.
Bert is just fine hes happy and healthy and he only eats what he needs, skipping daily feedings.
any help would be most appreciated and any other helpful advice
