Why dont betta fish get lonely being all alone in aquariums? Don’t they live near other bettas in the wild? I have a betta in a five gallon tank, all alone, he seems just fine, I want to put a platy in there with him because I need for him to be out of my community tank. Will it be ok?
Plays need 20 gallons minimum I believe and in the wild they are solitary creatures who keep other animals out of a territory about 1 meter about. Traditionally they only stand members of the opposite sex if it’s breeding season otherwise they’ll kill intruders typically
