Thanks for the reply
. I just want to do what's best for the fish while still pursuing this as a hobby. Good info on ghost vs red cherry. I don't really have a preference, but I'd like to at least give them a fighting chance before they find themselves on the receiving end of the Captain's invert cravings....
If you don't mind telling me, how long did you keep your Bettas with the community fish? What size tanks? What other community fish? Trying to soak up as much info as possible here! Thank you!
