    So today as I am looking at my GT pair, I noticed the female is missing a little part of her fin (just her tail fin the top part was inflicted at the LFS)

    I only have 2 other tanks, a 10 gal with a betta, and a 20 long with Tanganyikan shell dwelling Cichlids. I am getting Cichlid stones in about 2 days for the tank and received a piece of Manzanita wood today in the mail. Do you think I should let her get harassed for the 2 days or move her? Thanks.

    So right now there is no deco in the tank? You could make a jerry-rigged divider in the meantime just to keep them separate. That damage does not look to bad though, could have been caused by scraping up against something. Are you seeing them fight?

    Just a lot of chasing, she still goes near him ATM, (I don't even know the sex if this is a male or female, assuming it's female)

    If you can, run down to any craft store and get plastic canvas mesh and stick it in there between them. You can make it more sturdy by adding the things that slide over paper to bind them inside a plastic cover they sell at office supply stores as well.

    Found a reference build this is for a beta tank but same idea:

    Dividing a tank for bettas..fun and low cost

    Thanks, may just end up putting her in a 10 gallon Rubbermaid bin
