5gallon, betta tank mates?
Tank: 5gallons, filter & heater, cycled, sand substrate, driftwood, watersprite (mainly floating, some held down by the drift wood), a pot thing on its side.
I've just finished re-cycling my tank after my last guppy died and I wanted to get rid of the snail population explosion so completely cleared it out and started again.
I'm going to be getting a male Betta tomorrow.
However, I'm playing with the possibility of getting a/some tank mate(s) in a few months time (around April) and want to hear peoples opinions and experiences about African dwarf frogs and Otto catfish.
Would an ADF be happy without other members of its species? Or would 2 be better? But would that then overstock the tank?
Again the same question about Otto catfish, how messy are they? would 1 be happy on its own? would 2 or 3 overstock the tank?
Also, I plan to put some salt in the tank before I get the betta, probably only a teaspoon per gallon (probably a bit more to start with though). Will this be ok with ADFs and ottos? (Also will it affect the watersprite if anyone knows?).
Thank you for any tips/suggestions/help :)
