I know that bettas will live better in larger tanks, but everyone says that bettas can't be happy in small bowls, yet this one is happier than my betta who is in a five gal heated and filtered tank.2. That fish would be way more active and probably blow more nests in a larger tank. I have seen the difference in activity levels in several bettas, and the ones in larger tanks always do better.
I don't really know for sure, but I was told bettas make bubble nests when they see a female, or when they are happy. Mine just darts everywhere and glares at me if I try to take a picture of it.Also, how do you know their betta is happier? I highly doubt it's comfortable in such a small, unheated, unfiltered tank.
Yes I currently have her in a breeder's net, but I had her for a month just swimming freely in the tank.
Do you really need to sell the guppies for that? If your family is on a "you need to be independent" kick, then I assume (or at least hope) that they are giving you some type of allowance? Maybe save a little of that and get the divider? Give Newbie 3-5 gallons and the rest to the guppies? Would that work or is there some issue that I'm missing.oh and don't worry about the breeder's net thing. I am trying to get up the nerve (and heart) to sell my guppies so I can afford to get a divider and divide my twenty gallon.
