Don't want to mention any names

Don't want to mention any names or nothing but went to one of my lfs to see what they had and what do I see. That's right they had a male betta in a tank with a bunch of roseline sharks. Don't know if that betta will be alive in the morning pretty sure I saw some fin nipping and chasing.

Male Bettas may be all aggression against their own or closely related species (other Anabantoids) but their fancy fins makes them slow moving, and a target for other species known to nip fins. I did not know that Roselines were particularly nippy, but I could easily see that they could beat a Betta in a fight. Fast, agile... compared to a fish 'tripping over his own skirts'.

Pretty sure I saw some killifish in the same tank too. That betta was pretty nice looking purple color maybe a little blue to him. I already have two males one female no more room for another betta.

Come on! There's always more room for this:


Go back tomorrow and get him!

P.S. you know that a Betta addict on a fish forum is no different than an alcoholic walking into Bevmo to browse. Muhahaha!

Lost my betta a couple weeks back so decided to pick up a new one. He has some good color on him I'm about to put him in a 10g probably saved his life buying him.

I hope you gave the store a stern talking-to.

Forgot to post a pic. Really thinking of setting up different betta bowls across the bar in the kitchen.
