I wouldn't suggest Danios for such a small tank, although 5-6 could fit in there, there isn't enough horizontal space for them to swim. They are high energy fish that need lots of room :) Glad you picked some nice fish for your tank, and congratz on the extra 10gal you didn't know you had! haha

NO gouramis! bettas and gouramis WILL kill eachother, because the betta will think the gourami is another betta (also they are related)

Animals are not ours to exploit for money or pleasure.


Those who would abuse animals would do so to a human without second thought.

This is Copperarabian

Dwarf gouramis? Here's a earlier thread I made about having dwarf gouramis with female Bettas. The male Bettas will kill the gouramis (or be killed by them) for sure, but in the thread we discussed that females are fine with the dwarf gouramis as long as there are hiding spots, mostly for the multiple gouramis to create small territory's for themselves.

And I find it hard to feed bottom feeders, I've never had Corys though but I've had pleco's and the bettas are always gorging on their food so I have to take them out whenever I feed them anything other than cucumber or they gorge themselves :( I'll let her look at the cory's to see if she like's them anyway :D it's easy to separate one betta, just inconvenient at times.
