Lucky eats Hikari Betta Bio Gold pellets, and so does Dragon. How many flakes does each Tetra need?

Yup, just make sure that the tetras don't get over fed though :)

Well, since no one has mentioned this. A 5g tank is no where near enough room for a betta and tetras. IMO tetras need at least 15g to be happy. They are very active fish and need to be in large shoals.

For a tank mate, I'd get a few ADFs or a Mystery snail. A mystery snail is easy to feed. ADFs are not.

I thought the tank looked big enough to keep a small school. Well, you probably know best! Are there any fishy friends for Lucky? The tank just seemed to big for one betta. I thought it was going to be smaller. Shows what I know, lol. Plus, IDK Where I can get ADFs. Nor do I know where I can get snails.

What about a small bottom feeder? Or another small fish?

Maybe you could get two Otocinclus catfish. But I don't think they are very well suited for a 5g unless it's planted.

You can get ADFs and Mystery snails at Petsmart. At least mine sells both.

I would not add any other fish. Although it looks big they simply isn't enough space to comfortably house them all.

you can get both ADFs and Mystery snails at your local petsmart/petco.
=] you could also opt for shrimp but be forewarned that your betta might see them as a snack and eat them. =/

Also if you get shrimp or ADFs they need lots of places to hide. =]
