KittenFishMom Posted February 15, 2022 Share Posted February 15, 2022 My blue male betta shared a tank with a female flagfish and some peppered corys for 6 weeks. The Betta would patrol the tank and tell the flagfish to “move along” and the flagfish swam away and all were happy. Last week, the male betta started following and chasing the flagfish. After 2 days of it, I took the flagfish away from the betta and put her in with the guppies and all were happy. Now the betta seems bored. He is eating, but just swims around aimlessly, often staying in the same place for rather long periods of time. He still has 2 peppered corys in the tank with him, who are bigger than him and much to busy to notice him. I’m wondering if my betta might be bored? I don’t want to put the flagfish back in with him. I could put a few guppies in the tank, but it is only a 10 gallon tank. I’m going to feed more bbs tonight. So that might liven things up a bit. I could rearrange the rocks. There are a lot of floating plants. They tend to go where they want to go. I spend time sitting infront of the tank watching the betta, but he has not been very interested in me. I tested the water, and everything is normal and stable. It is a very stable tanks with lots of plants and only smallish 3 fish. The temp is the same as always. Do you think the betta is bored or do you think something else is going on? 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
