    Alright guys, I feel so guilty....

    So, some of you know I am getting a betta boy from MM (he is shipping tomorrow!!) I was snooping around looking at MM's aquabid ads, and she has some females avaliable. One of the ones in the pic was bright yellow, and I fell in love. I am debating over whether or not to get her, and I am super on-the fence. She will only be 5 dollars extra, so price isn't a concern.

    I am a little worried about having a male and female divided tank... will the girlie get egg-bound? Will she jump the divider? 5 gallons is plenty of space per betta, right? (part of me feels guilty for not giving as much space to the betta boy) Any other concerns?

    Thanks guys!

    5gals is plently of room for a female. My only worry is her getting egg bound but that doesnt always happen. I've seen plenty of people on here with females and males in a divided tank and havent had problems. Just make sure the water level is at least 3 inches below the divider so they wont be able to jump over and dont put and plants near the divider they might try to use them to get a higher up start on jumping.

    Lol Lucy, yeah, she is bright yellow :)

    The plants are not close to the divider, so that should not be a problem... I am hoping for a very opaque divider so that the kids cannot see each other well.

    Rae, congrats! See what happens when you ask us whether to get another fish or not?? You end up with one anyway, same with me. I fell for it too :(.

    Haha wouldn't have it any other way! Let us know when they are safely with you...

    Hi Rae, Your babies are getting ready to be bagged....I'll get a photo of the female before she leaves...She is not solid yellow she is a light MG actually....

    Make SURE and keep the water lever low enough to prevent jumping!
