Diablo (the one in my avatar) is my only betta boy right now but I do love him to bits! He is a darling and is so affectionate to me. He comes to the front of the tank and smooches me when I put my hand up to the tank and is such a little darling. He has three little Kuhli loaches in the tank with him for some snail removal at present since his new plants were infested but he is tolerating them very well. Partially since they are nocturnal and he does not have much contact with them.
They are rated for 5 gallon tanks and are fascinating to watch. I have a group of three with him in the 12 gallon and they get along just fine.
When they get a little longer and bigger they can transfer to the 25 gallon tank to play back there and Diablo can have his tank back to himself.
But I have gone from 7 bettas now to one and it is enough. Sometimes I think the more fish we get the better but lately I have had a lot going on in my life and have needed the tanks to be cut back so did not replace some of the fish when they went to the great big tank in the sky. Perhaps someday I will be more flush with bettas again but for now the one I have is a baby enough. He is my darling.
