Crazy girl. I hope the time out works and she settles down.

Pretty much a gamble then. I'm thinking no on guppies.

I have had black kuhlies in my 15 gallon sorority, They are awesome little fish. I'd like to find some striped ones.

I might go platies ... unsure. They look pretty similar to girl bettas come to think of it (a tad smaller though I think?) I'd really like some livebearers as a source of live food for my bettas. Sorry if that sounds cruel.

Strangely enough she was picking on the duller of my guppies. The colourful boys she left alone.

I've had 2 platie girls and a guy for a week in "new fish QT" and already got a small batch of fry. Trust me, if you get a guy and a girl, you will definitely have a steady source of live food.

And all I can say for sure is definitely no danios. They're too hyper. I tried a few bettas in with my danios and each one did poorly. The females got stripey (my teal girl looked like a danio herself) and my male just headbutted any danio that passed by him. Which they did frequently because they're not too bright and never tried to avoid him.

What about black knife fish? Probably no, but I love them and now have a nice big tank for some if I can manage it lol

Those guys are so neat looking! And they can swim backwards AND forwards. But don't knifefishes get anywhere from 12-40" long depending on the type?

Yes, I saw 18-20" though. And it's a no no definitely for a betta sorority, they are predators :(

I'd love to get another 55 or even a 75 and get 2-3 of them though!

Oh if only we had room for all the big tanks we dream of. I'd love a big one with clown loaches and couple of the bigger gouramis.

Black knife fish are interesting fish, I saw a huge 15" at a pet store. they need a 75+ aquarium as they grow bigger.

So two questions:
1) Do cory cats tend to bury themselves in the substrate? I'm missing one panda cory. I can't find him anywhere. I checked the filter, checked all around the tank, swept under the dresser, checked the decorations, raked the sand. Can't find him.

2) I have nine platy fry in a 3.75g kritter keeper. They're 4 days old. How long can I keep them there until I need to move them to a bigger tank?
