Ok my mom just bought me new fishies

I mean we went to the pet shop and they said they might be a goodcompability with my girl. Right now I have them in my old one gallon next to her 5 gallon tank. There ten ofthe little guys the're like Silver something I think Silver Guppies. Are those good for my girl? If not I might just leave them in the one gallon. Any suggestions? I was hoping she would tell me about an appla snail or shrimp or something. I also told her it was a 5 gallon tank.

You cant have tankmates in a 5 gallon tank, its too small to handle it. The fish cant survive in a 1g either. Unless you want to get a 10g or bigger depending on the adult size of the fish, I'd return the fish for the sake of them having a decent life.

1 Male ~ 5 Females
3 Bronze Cories
1 Hamster
Soon, 1 cornsnake!

Garra rufa and Cyprinion macrostomus are commonly sold under that name. If they are one of these fish then you can't keep those with your Betta or in the 1 gallon as both tanks are unsuitable

16 gallon - 11 neon tetras, 6 Pygmy cories, 6 kuhli loaches and 1 male Betta
15 gallon - 1 male Betta, 3 platies, and 5 guppies
6 gallon - 1 male Betta

All planted tanks

In My Opinion a Betta deserves nothing smaller than a 5 gallon tank

well it's too late for that now I can't return them. She seems to be doing fine right now. If I knew this I would have gotten six neon tetras like I wanted in the first place. But regardles is done now. I might get a 10 gallon or just wait and see. I just wanted to get her a friend this is what they told me could work in yes a 5 gallon!
