Well, I've been into fish keeping since August of this year, and learned a lot before I even got my betta fish. I mention this so people know I'm not a complete noob :P
Anyways, I've got a betta fish (who doesnt seem to be a veiltail, just a standard betta with no special finnage...but hes pretty :]) in my 14 gallon tank with 3 neon tetras. Used to have 6 neon tetras, but I guess I got a bad batch of neons, since 3 died But now, my tank is looking pretty empty, and I'm wondering what else I could put into it.
I'm a little tired of neon tetras, so no mentioning more neons :P Other tetras are fine. Cories also arent an option, because I've got black gravel, and I dont wanna harm them with it. Any suggestions are welcome :D
If the gravel isn't sharp than getting corycats would be just fine, if I were you I'd get a few albino, they'd look so nice against the black gravel. You could also get Platys, or invertabrites (I've heard that ghost shrimp can get a bit aggressive if they grow large enough) Or african dwarf frogs.
If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows
I don't know about male betta fish, but I currently have 4 females living happily with 3 african dwarf frogs (these guys are entertaining and loveable!), 3 ghost shrimp (they all seem to tolerate and love each other), and a snail.
I've also been wondering what to add to my 5g tank all I have is a male betta but I'm worried if I put anymore fish he will get more chances of getting sick? Cause I recently just purchased him and it looks like he has mouth fungus.
