Below is some shots of my male and female pair, Oberon and Titania. They have grown very close, not my intent but still very cute! Wishing they would breed, but oh well.
Could've been me. I sadly lost my male, but female still lives in 40 gallon with all other fish. Congrats, they are cute when they swim and like to be together.PascalKrypt said:Hmmm, a while ago someone posted here who kept a male-female pair permanently housed and it worked out...
Probably is just because of the individual fish.mrsP said:No, that's someone else. I've had bettas always in my planted tanks, always a pair, and never had issues with them. Perhaps because tanks are large enough and hevily planted.
I really like the thought that fish can and does have likes and dislikes, and we can get them right. Does that mean fish have feelings? Might not, but who knows.PascalKrypt said:Probably is just because of the individual fish.
I've had a breeding pair that would get along spectacularly, the first time I bred them it only took 30 minutes for them to wrap and afterwards they would just get to business immediately. The female would have zero damage because the male didn't even need to chase her. They were cute together.
That same male seriously damaged another girl that was not to his liking. Sometimes they are a match and sometimes they aren't.
But that does mean you're the second person who's posted on here with that kind of set-up working out long term
