i had 3 harli's, one died,, new tank with a betta. 10 gallon. plenty of plants and swimming space. so i waited a wk. then bought 2 more Harli's. so now i have 4. they are all separated. no schooling going on. one is staying alone in the flow of the filter. i believe he is male..long and slender body.. i also believe he is one of the new ones.. so i was reading that they know when they are not from the same group that was hanging out before the move... I will continue to keep my eye on him... i hope he is alright.. now that i am watching... i am now seeing him bully anyone coming into his space in the filter stream...hmmm? didnt notice that before..does this mean he is a dominant male? also, my betta has seemed to relax...yesterday he was chasing everyone. and rt now.. he is resting alot.. hard being a tough guy all the time i guess.. I try to make alittle nest for him at the top which i thing he likes.. he goes to get away from all of the hustle and bustle of the Harli's i guess... after all. he lived alone for 8 months, he is very hardy. but i think now after 3 to 4 wks of changes, new fish,fish dies, anonther new fish in.. and btw... he hated the beautiful gourami that i added 2 wks ago..i had to take the gourami back to the store...ok.. i know this was alot... alot going on.. oh..... and i didnt even tell you... that i think i had a gravid female... 5 days gravid, swimming normal.. eating normal and finally today, she is not bulging.. i think she may have reabsorbed the eggs( at least, thats what they say happens if she doesnt drop them.. thanks for reading...
