Just added some new fish to community tank. BettA is in breeder tank. How long to +

Wait to set him free? It's a 10 gallon community. I was waiting for some neons to get a little bigger and the ones that made it have. Today I added 4 medium ones to give me a school of 6. Thanks!

Maybe a little overstocked, what do you mean by a community? Keep in mind that the tetras might nip his fins.

I have fish. You probably do to. Yay!!

It's a 10 gallon tank with male betta, 2 ghost shrimp and 6 neons... From all the research I have done, I thought this was appropriate... ?

It sounds alright. Once in awhile they might nip his fins, but lots of plants and hiding spots will help that :) Just keep an eye on it!

Thanks! When can I set the betta loose in the tank now that I added the neons? I didn't know if there was an "order" lol

well, the originals have been in there awhile now, right? You would probably be fine to add him any time now :)
