View Full Version : Angel and Betta - Problem with Betta

04-29-2006, 09:30 PM
Today I added 5 angels to my betta tank. The tank is 30 galons. I added 2 small angels and 3 medium I think. The betta looked at them first but after 2-3 minutes he just stay where he was. I saw it and touch the tank (just to be sure he is alive) and he swim very fast and get hide in a driftwood (I thik it's that). After 5 minutes he haven't move from there.

I don't want to lose my Betta. Any idea or sugestion or something...

Thanks for your help.

How much time should I give him to worry?

I don't think he will go out to eat neither, I'm worry about that.

Thanks for your help.

He got out. He isn't swiming vey active but he is out.

Thanks for your support, I was very scared of that I kill him. Anyway I have a 30 galons tank with 1 Betta onone side and 5 Angels in the other :) but at least they will be ok.

Thanks or the pic.!

How come you haven't filled the entire tank?

04-30-2006, 02:00 PM
Let'sjust say that I was trying to find a good source of information (like this forum). Just to be sure because here in the pet shops they gave the info they wanted (as the CO2 System that result that I didn't need it).

But don't worry I hope I can put more and more on it.

Also I have a 20 galons tank (that it's being used by my girlfriend) and that one have 18 fish (between gupys, neon and other one I can't remember the name).

Tha Angels didn't eat since they are here, it's that normal?
