Decisions, Decisions

So my guppies died. Again. Honestly, I don't think guppies and I were meant to be. So, I have two choices for my 10 gallon A) get 6 pygmy cories (I'd have to find them first) or B) add a female betta fish.

The pros and cons of each A) pro: they're adorable con: they aren't as colorful as I could hope for. B) pro: she'll be colorful con: I'd have to buy a lid for the tank

My problem is that I'm broke ;_;. I have money in my back account, but I hate taking from that seeing as I'm saving up for Dragon Con next year and college. So, I'll have to wait until I have money to decide, but in the mean time, help me decide!

You can get both? Bettas and cories are fairly compatible.

(Oh, I forgot to mention that the fishies would be going in a 10 gallon with 4-5 harlequin rasboras)

True... but then again, I could do 4 girls in the tank with my five harlequin rasboras!

GAH! there are too many possiblities!

off topic, but if I don't get this betta, I could die! http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1287064628

No, you wont die.

Anyways, im not sure about the harlequin rasboras. They are very timid and its possible that the girls will bully them to death - But the girls may just pay attention to one another. Bottom dwellers are usually best as they are out of the way. But im not very knowledgeable about sororities. TBH I would just get the cories or one female/male betta - You wont have to worry about aggression issues and backup plans.

true. I think I'll go with that after a bit more research on pygmy cories. :D
