Welcome to AA! Do you have any pics of your tank? In case you haven't noticed, the people here are very visual, and we all love pictures!

You actually keep your male and female Bettas in the same tank all the time? I thought you had to keep them separated except when breeding. Shows what I know about Bettas...

I just deleted the pics off my camera. I can easily get more when i go back upstairs though.

Yes i keep them together. As long as the tank is big enough they are fine and stay away from eachother. I would only do this in a 10 gal or larger. I used to breed Bettas when i was 16 until i was 19 then my little bro took over with them and i got into Piranhas.

I though you kept the Piranhas with the betta at first and was thinking "what the heck?" Now I understand.

Welcome to AA! Happy to have you here and part of the community.

Retaks - Ok, now I'm confused... Do you keep the pinanahas and the male and female bettas in the same tank together? That's how it sounds in your first post.

Yes they are in the same tank together for now. The Bettas are big enough the Piranhas dont mess with them. I am putting a divider in either tonight or on Sun whichever day i can get to the pet shop. The Piranhas are getting big so quick i dont want them to get big enough to eat the Bettas on me. I have some pics but i can figure out how to put them on here.

You may have to host them on photobucket or something, then just copy and past the option that has [IMG] on both sides of the URL.

I was confused too, I though you did not have em in the same tank. I'd get em out b/c those bettas are probably looking tastier and tastier every day.
