NONONONOWe have nobody who wants him, should we just release him to our local pond? My sick male betta just passed away while we were at the zoo today so we're gonna go to the store to get a new one tomorrow, my mom wants to just return the goldfish to Friendly Pets while we buy the new betta because they have a really good reputation, and the workers there know everything there is to know about the fish they sell. Plus the other fish we have really need groups like you said, but we can't do that with goldfish dude here. Not to mention Lapis (female crowntail) keeps ganging up on Peony (female veiltail) and I don't want to risk waiting any longer cause Peony is my favorite of the two and I don't want to lose her to Lapis' aggressiveness but as I said earlier we can't get new fish till we get rid of the goldfish.
DON'T RELEASE ANY ANIMAL INTO THE WILD!!!!!!! it's actually illegal in most parts of the world.
Could you buy 2 more tanks (for the bettas) Buy another betta (bc the minimum for 3 females is 15-20 gallons) and buy a 40 gallon and buy your current goldfish a friend? Could you give him to a LPS? Or Craigslist? Would you ship? I've been looking into goldfish for a long time- How big is your male betta tank?
