My cories have gravel and seem super happy... i just made sure it was more rounded gravel than sharp... they prefer shrimp pellets and since my betta eats their food too and i can be sure he is getting meat instead of algae... be careful... i barely feed my betta anymore bec he munches in the gravel all day bec he learned from the cory

for a ten gallon i would put 7 frogs with a betta... they are said to need one gallon and like groups so their bioload is low... honestly it must be easier to feed them in a small tank bec u can hand feed them so i bet they do better in a one gallon... ive heard that they die if u keep them with other bottom feeders bec cories are much faster and will eat their food

The betta in my avatar {No longer with us} Hated our neons...he would charge them every chance he got...he killed a few. But my VT and HM don't mind them at all...the VT chases them now and then but has never injured any. The HM gets along with the 6 neons in his tank very well. I think it just depends on the fish.

My past experience...neons eventually became my old bettas snack...everything else seemed okay but I had to seperate the betta because he was eating my neons so im not sure if he would have stayed good with the others or not. Started off great, first couple months no issue...one neon died from illness, betta snacked on him, got a taste of fresh fish and after that become the hunter lol..

No no no no.... This is totally false! Please, if you place that many froga and a betta in a ten gallon tank you are severely over-stocking the tank!

Katrina, i highly encourage you to read the thread in my signature, please!

I personally have my frogs in the same tank as both cories and khuli loaches, both bottom dwelling fish, and my frogs are just fine. it is not a matter of fish, it is a matter of knowing what the heck you are doing, and asking all the right questions to people who know more than you do.

One more thing - Would mesh/screen tops work well so they don't jump out? And what kind of lighting do they need? (I've seen lights called moonlights, so I want to make sure I get the right kind.)

And thank you again. You've definitely helped me TONS.

oops, didnt see this! lol

Screen tops are great, and you can place the regular tank hood on top of that. frogs dont need a particular kind of light, that all depends on the plants you have. set up the lighting for the plants, and just give the frogs plenty of places to hide if they need it. :)

Perfect! The screen top with the hood on top completely solves my worry that the frogs would escape. Thank you so much for all the information and help!

Sounds good, but watch the Neons, they prefer being in groups of 6 that'll be on pretty tank.
