I'm planning a community tank with 1 Male Betta fish, 5 Harlequin Rasboras and 3 Panda Corys (or 5 Ghost Shrimps). I have a low current, heated 15G tank.
I was wondering how I should go about introducing the fish into my tank? I was thinking of buying my fish in a span of 1 week. I would by 3 Pandas first and introduce them to my tank (using the proper acclimation method). A few days later I would buy and introduce 1 male Betta into the tank (again using the proper acclimation method). The tank has a few live plants and a lot of hiding places. I thought having the Pandas in first well give them a head start in settling into the tank, followed by my Betta a few days later. Lastly, I would introduce my Rasboras and acclimate them.
My question is, how would you guys go about stocking your tank with 1 Betta, 5 Rasboras and 3 Panda Corys? And is my procedure reasonable or can it be improved?
All feedback is appreciated :D
