I just got 2 female bettas yesterday and put them in a 2.5 gallon, filtered tank. They are close to same size, one white and one blue. The blue betta seems to be the more dominant, active one and she chases the white one around the tank periodically. They both have been happily exploring their new environment, but I'm getting worried that the white one is going to be too stressed out from being chased. She already seems to hide (and remain still) more than her companion, and I haven't even tried to feed them in their tank yet. I gave them each a pellet yesterday in their store cups before I introduced them to their new home. I will try to feed them some daphnia today, but I'm not sure how I can make sure they both get an equal amount...especially if the white one hides at the bottom or behind the filter. I have a divider that I could use if they need to be separated...so far I haven't noticed any actual nipping going on. Is this normal play chasing? I'd like to give them a chance to work it out, but don't want to see the white one get hurt in the process. Please advise. Thanks, Mia ???
