My name is Faith! I’m 19 years old, and me and my boyfriend have lived together for about 2 years! We recently got into fishkeeping when we found out online that bettas need a full setup and heater. This broke our hearts as we both have had a betta as kids and both were kept in vases with no filter or heater): This inspired us to get our own betta and spoil the turd out of him! We have a beautiful Cambodian boy named Tiki and he lives a lavish life in his heavily planted 10 gallon tank all to himself! After he settled in, we thought “hm there’s totally more space on the dresser for a second 10 gallon” so we did that we have a dwarf gourami in there with 2 snails. His name is Jambi and he’s a very happy boy! His tank is also heavily planted. We were told we could keep about 10 chili rasboras in there with him. We had the lfs order some for us and they got 12. Well, we felt bad leaving two all by themselves. They were so young we thought they’d die of stress being just two. So we bring all 12 home and decide that they’re TINY. Like some of them were only a little over 1/4 inch. We decided to keep them in our cycled 6 gallon that we were preparing for a second betta. One by one each day and even three today have died. We only have 6 now. Does anyone know what could have happened? They were acting fine, a little stressed all in one corner but they’d still swim about every so often before going back to the corner. They all ate fine until one would be about to die. It would stop eating, hover near the surface just floating and swimming the tiniest bit every so often basically just turning. And then i wake up to one or two dead. I’m going to attach some photos of Tiki and Jambi and then one of them because they’re seriously tiny. I’ve been feeding them hikari first bites because that’s all they can fit in their mouths.
