I more or less took these two bettas from a friend of mine. They were together in a communinity tank with some angels, mollies and betas. He's running a cannister filter in his 55 gallon lightly decorated with some fake plabts and drift wood. He didn't know why they were looking so poorly and I imagine its partly stress from the water movement. I couldn't figure out if the other fish were nipping at their fins or not. The only thing I saw was at feeding time the male liked to chase away the female. At anyrate I brought them home and put them in a ten gallon split tank. The first few days they were extremely skitish and didin't seem to be eating. Last night however when I came into the room I put them in they both were waiting at the side and started to eat as soon as I fed them. They look terrible right now but hopefully they will do better. I was told the mail is a crowntail but I really can't tell. Not much experience with bettas.
