3 Cories, you'll LOVE them. They zip around and are fun to watch. 5 gallons is enough for 3 cories and a betta.

"Dude, where's my betta..?"

10 Gallon Planted:
1x Double Tail Male Betta - Aka
4x Phantom Tetras - Killer and his lady friends
3x Julii Corydoras - The Emo Kids

I have to disagree Phoxly. Cories do not live well in a 5g. Even the dwarf variety.

Try a mystery snail!!! They are really really cute and fun to watch.

Thanks guys! I think If I get tank mates it will be ghost shrimp. I really want fish, but I think ghost shrimp will do. (:

The Cherry shrimp are more colorful than ghost shrimp. I have a few of both and when I do a water change my ghost shrimp get really excited and blitz around the tank, its cute to watch.

I used that, and I think I would do 3 cherry shrimp. Could I put anything in Dragon's 2.5 gallon or would that be overdoing it?

I wouldn't put anything in the 2.5gallon.

Cherry shrimp are very nice but IMO I would try out ghost shrimp first. It sounds very cruel to say that but Cherries are much more expensive than Ghost shrimp and it wouldn't be good to spend all that money only to find out your Betta won't tolerate shrimp.

It really depends. My Caesar attacked a Ghost Shrimp, but he will not touch cherry shrimp. I got two new ones awhile back, and he was having a fit that they were in a bag. I released them and he was back to being happy. They are all still in his tank and he even sleeps with them.

I don't know. I keep watching them. He already had four shrimp in with him. And they sleep in Java Moss and he sleeps in back about a couple of inches over.

Or wait was that for the thread writer? O.o I am tired.
