What Can I Keep With a Betta in a 6 or 10 Gallon Tank?
I've got 1 Betta right now, and was looking to get a bigger tank for him. I was looking at those fancy 6 gallon Fluval Edge tank, but I'm seeing a lot of people say that 6 gallons might be too small for a Betta + schooling fish. I'm trying to figure out what I can keep with the Bettas in either size tank, because for the money, I might just get a cheaper 10 gallon and stock it and decorate it with the extra money. I don't want to go too much over $120 on this setup, especially since I've had trouble keeping small schooling fish in the past. I think it may be that the water here is extremely alkaline. My Betta doesn't seem to mind, and the people at Petsmart say that it shouldn't be an issue, but I don't always trust their opinions.
I understand that I can't have extremely flashy fish with my Betta, but I kind of like the more subdued ones anyway. I don't like the look of see-through fish at all. I like pretty much everything else though.
