Male Betta Introduced to 10 Gallon Tank Community
I was hoping to get an opinion of someone more experienced than I in fish-keeping. I have had my current 10 gallon tank established since mid January of this year (I had fish originally in a 5 gallon, which cracked, so I upgraded to a 10 gallon). It has a community of White Cloud Minnows, Zebra Dainos, Pygmy Cory Catfish, Ghost Shrimp, and until about two weeks ago, 8 Neon Tetras (which all died overnight of an unknown cause).
I had a Betta which I kept in a small bowl on my desk, but he grew and I decided it was time to introduce him to a more comfortable habitat. My question is, has anyone had any problems keeping a male Betta with Zebra Dainos in a 10 gallon tank? The Betta is much larger than the Dainos, but I'm still concerned about the Dainos nipping at his fins.
