RIP Pomegranate

Male betta fish cannot live together. They are aggressive fish and will kill each other. Many people wrongly assume this is the same for females. Wikipedia (the source of all knowledge) says that female bettas can cohabit. Four or more females will establish a hierarchy allowing for peaceful co-existence. If, however, there are only two ladies in the tank, the alpha fish (ha-ha...) will bully the other. This was the case for Pomegranate and Vanilla, despite Lauren and I wanting them to be friends.

Vanilla was a bully and Pomegranate got so depressed that she died. True story. Today, I got Blueberry. She and Vanilla will live in separate homes so that Blueberry does not go off on Vanilla in vengeance of her predecessor.

♥, TiffanyAnne
