I am thinking about getting a few rasboras,dwarf or harlequin..Does anyone here keep rasboras with betta? Do they get along alright? My betta is a really mellow old guy..
Would 3 be too small of a group of them?
I had harlequin rasboras. Personally, I say they need to be in a group of 6, in a minimum of a 20 gallon tank. in a 10 gallon, they stressed out my boys too much, and were stressed as well by both boys. And they didn't have enough room to truly be happy
My tank is 10 gallons. I have 4 peppered cories and my old guy Cleo in there right now..It is decently planted. I do 2 30% water changes a week. I recently Moved my 2 big apple snails from this tank into another..it looks abit empty now to me.....I was looking into maybe getting a small fish to school around in the plants a bit. That is why I am mostly interested in Dwarf rasboras or maybe even a few ember tetras if I can kind them... (I believe those are the smallest tetras)
It said Currently I am 88% stocked. If I added 3-4 dwarf rasboras or ember tetras I would be right at 100% stocked..Filter compacity122%.. I wouldn't be adding anything more after that of course..
Also, I am not 100% sure I am going to do this..I may just continue my search for cherry shrimp. But I have have bad luck with shrimp in the past...
With the pepper cories, you are techinically pretty high up in stocking, and the extra fish might not help. You could go with shrimps, most will do well if you have a good and well planted tank for them to hide in if necessary. :)
