Also some advice on them too on how I'm doing things lol. I did research of course, but I find personal experience from people seems to always be better.
So today I bought some Cories, three Albinos for Labordays side since his gravel is white and three Peppered Cories since Valentine's gravel is black. I've put them together in one of my plastic tubs to quarantine them till the end of the week just to make sure there not sick or anything. I added a bit of Epsom salt, since I heard it can help kill parasites, and I just wanted to be over cautious since they were in fish tanks with a whole bunch of fish and you just never know. I bought them bottom feeder tabs to feed them as well.
Now I bought the smallest one's they had in the tanks, which happened to work out perfect for there were three small one's for the Albinos and three small ones for the Peppered and all the the others were full grown. I figured if I got them small my betta's wouldn't feel like they were intruding so much if they were possibly larger. I have a twenty gallon, but it's divided. Should I buy more or is three an ok number for them when I finally separate them in the tank? If they really need more to group together, I'm more then willing to drive around and try to find some more smaller one's, but I thought three might be good enough for each ten galloned side.
I was also wondering what might be the best way to introduce them? I was thinking this weekend when I do a water change, to take my Betta's out, do the water change which will destroy Valentine's big epic bubble nest and he wont be protective of it, then put the cories in and let them adjust and then add one Betta and see how he reacts to them, and then add the other Betta and do the same. If my betta's pick on them I guess I'll just have to return them, but I'm hoping it works out. I've already dubbed them The Mob.
I feel like a ask so many questions on this forum lol.
