So I was at Walmart today and I went over to the fish section (I know, bad idea, but I couldn't help it!) While I was there, I checked out the fish, was horrified by their care as usual, saw a few rotting ones, sick ones, wounded, etc. Y'all know how that goes. Then I see the bettas. There's only two left. Immediately I see the dead crowntail male, with sickly yellow water and bits of him just floating about. He had to have been dead for at least a week. Next to him is a female. Her water is relatively clean, but there's only maybe an inch of it. Shes surprisingly healthy and responsive, but she did have stripes (and not the good kind!) She was a beautiful fish, and I annoyed my mother to death to let me get her, but to avail. Here's what I wanted to ask. Can you keep a male a female together? I have a ten gallon that I may be able to hopefully upgrade to a twenty in the next few months. I didn't get the female now, but I was just wondering (for whatever the future may hold...) if it's possible? The Betta in the ten is a male crowntail, Chili Dew, and he's really chill, as his name almost states. At one point my other male Betta, Royal, was in the tank with him (long story) and while Royal was freaking out, Chili just strolled about. They flared a bit, Royal chased him, but Chili never fought back. I only observed this behavior as I frantically looked for a net and separated them again, but honestly Chili seemed really relaxed. Is it possible to get him a girlfriend?
