Glad you're enjoying your betta. They have great personalities. A 2 gallon is just fine as long as you keep up the water changes.

I have a 1.5 gal tank with filter and small CO2 setup for my plants. I have been testing my water constantly for the past month and everything seems to be ok. I was thinking about getting some ghost shrimp to help clean up the tank, how many should I get?

Charlie: Veil Tail, Red R.I.P.
Hermen: Veil Tail, Blue Red and Turquoise

My friend has a cory cat with her betta in a 2 gallon, since they can also breath air (I didn't find that out until I bought an aquarium book I bought). She keeps it very clean which is probably why the setup has worked. I wouldn't put anything in there unless your EXTEMELY religoius about water changes.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.
