I already have an ADF ChocolateBetta and he works great. The reason I was looking out for other tank mates was because my ADF has Chystrid Fungus a very lethal fungus found on ampibions and contracted by beign shipped with ACF which are immune to the effects of the fungus but are carierers. The petshop I got Bilbo at had both ADF's and ACF so I am sure his water was at some pint contaminated. However a herp guy on a frog site said this fungus is horid but in his reseach he had come up with somthing that might kill it off but not harm the frog, heat treatment. After two days of this heat treatment (raising the water temp up to 89 degrees) Bilbo has been active and eating and I think all the spores and fungus are dying off. However I have to now have a three month quarantine from Aquarius so in those three months I might have to just have a temp tank mate that can move into Nix's 10 gallon once the three months are up.
I'm leaning more towards shrimp though since they are smaller and make a smaller bioload. Ghost shrimp the easiest to add because they are translusant.
And he's a halfmoon double tail chocolate, his tail is fragile, more space means more strain on his slow moving body and more chance of him ripping up his tail trying to just move around. This is why he will always remain in a 5 gallon. His tail is far too large for him to comfortably make it around larger tanks. My female being more active and faster and can comfotably move around is etting the 10 gallon tank since she would make better use of it.
