Tank mates for a 5 gallon?

I have a male betta living in a filtered, heated, five gallon. He is very calm. I really like adfs...could I keep 2 of those with him? Thanks.

That might be straining the bioload a little unless your tank is also very well planted. Make sure you do plenty of research on the needs of ADFs before committing to buying them, as well. :)

As far as I'm aware they are social and should be kept in pairs, but hopefully someone who actually keeps them will come along and answer...they are illegal here so my answers are gleaned from research rather than experience. :)

Thanks, that's what I thought. He's in a divided ten gallon, so would the biolad be okay with 2? I have a couple plants, but not really enough to make a difference in water quality.
