Hehe, sorry, we did get a little distracted by the turtle comment, even though you were never planning on housing the betta with a turtle :P

Do you have a stocking list? Love to hear how it's going and what you've settled on.

haha that's ok, i would love to house them together but am not willing to risk their lives!
I was decided on just a snail and a catfish, but then my friend suggested frogs and I was hooked. So I think I'm going with a Betta, 2 African Dwarf Frogs, and probably a Siamese Algae Eater catfish to nix the algae(it will be interesting to see how much they grow in a 20 compared to my SAEs in my 55), and seeing as I'm getting live plants hopefully(something I can't do in the other tank! Turtle snaps those up quicker than I can turn around) I can guarantee there will also be snails. If I get my butt in gear this morning before work I'll go get the tank setup materials and that tank only takes 3 or 4 days to cycle, so next week :) Pictures will be posted. I might end up getting the Betta at a fancy (meaning $$$) fish store, just because the ones pet stores sell seem to come with the Fin rot thrown in as a free gift.

I had a turtle once, maybe an inch and a half wide. Figured a 3" algae eater would make a good tank mate and he'd be too big for little Chuck to mess with. The next morning the only thing in the tank was the floating head of the algae eater and a turtle who was looking rather pleased with himself.

Never underestimate a turtle.

hahahaha that's not funny but it is so funny.
I have him in there with 13 small fish, he might bug them when he gets bigger but I don't mind, it's all for the turtle. But if he touches the $25 pleco, he's in big trouble!

I'm excited, as soon as I finish lunch I'm going to go buy all the tank setup stuff!

Don't forget to post some pictures when you can! It is cool to see a turtle in with his fishy friends. I didn't mind if mine knocked off a guppy now and then because that's what I put them in there for! :D
