I only have 1 and then I have a lace catfish also. We only have the big river rocks in our tank, no gravel and he seems to do great. We are definitely getting atleast one more though because they are sooooooooo unbelievably entertaining. He's hilarious. We have a pretty strong current in the tank from the filter and he rides it. I swear to you, he thinks it's fun and he rides it! I also swear that my female betta has a crush on him. They hang out together a lot. We're going to add a something this weekend, just not sure what we want yet. Oh, and also, apparently, there are albino cories. Atleast that's what they looked like and that's what the fish guy told me, so when we get another one I think I'm going to want one of them. They're kinda peach with pink eyes. They're pretty cool, but I highly recommend cories, he's my favorite fish, well, besides my 4 male bettas, I love them! Good luck and keep me posted on whether or not you get one.

I have a quick question. What could I put around or in my filter (HOB) intake tube to keep it from shredding my VT's fins?

Like filter floss, an unused sponge, etc. Just put it in there and the current should slow down.

An unused sponge like for dish washing? Would it have to be snug?

An aquarium sponge is better, it's easier to find as well. Just cut the sponge to the right size.

Oh ok! Forgot to mention that the 10 gallon he's in is divided 3 ways. Wouldn't putting a sponge in the intake decrease the flow and filtration in the other 2 sections? Could I wrap pantyhose around it instead?

Well, as long as the filter filters, it doesn't really matter. Cycled? Pantyhose is great!

I have another quick question...

I'm waiting on my 5 gallon to cycle... WHen it does, I will need to add one fish at a time. (I want to divide it) What if I get to the store and see 2 fish that I want? I don't have a qt tank set up. What would qualify as one? Does it need a filter, gravel, and other things to make it a "home?" How often and how much would I need to change the water in it? (I wish I could leave him in his cup and do daily water changes until he can be added to the tank, but that doesn't seem fair)
