I'm planning to get sands when I head out to Petsmart anyways lol so good timing? :p

Thank you for all the suggestions, and what does QT mean? (Not that Cutie thing right? LOL) And how do I know if my tank is cycled.

I have the AquaClear 30

Quarantine. You have to make sure all the fish getting into the tank are healthy so the current residents don't get it as well.
The filter is great, I actually have that for my 20 gallon. lol

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

How would I know if they are healthy or not? xD Sorry I'm such a noob at this!

I love the AquaClear! But it just have a bit of a strong flow so I have to go get a sponge/foam to slow down the flow :p

It's ok. They'll be active, and they'll be pigs during feeding time. No visible problems on their body and fins, and rich colors. Make sure they're not bloated, darting, or their poo is not white.

Yes, it does. I had to put some decorations in front of it. x(

You should try those clear skeleton catfish. They swim fast and loves the dark!

Still looking for a tank mate for my betta. Got 1 Ghost shrimp in with him right now and no problem so far! Would a school fish be fine in the tank? 6 Neons?

They should be fine, just be aware they might nip occasionally nip at your bettas fins. Sometimes those beautiful fins are too hard to resist lol.

My brother has his betta in a 10gal. He has a molly, red tailed sword fish, a gourami, forget what else in with it. You basically just want to look for fish that don't have fancy fins or long fins similar to what a betta has. And make sure they aren't aggressive.

I don't suggest a gourami...they are a cousin of the betta. It may work for some, depending on their aggression level, but for the most part...I would say no to that.
