Sounds like a plan. It is perfectly fine to take things easy and rather be on the safe side.
Sorry if you were put off in any ways to the conversation.

I think this comes back to the topic of:

Everyone has their own opinions and should be allowed to do things differently as long as their fish are generally happy and healthy.

Just agree to disagree, so we can get back to seeing some more awesome tanks guys :P

POST MORE TANK PICS! :D :D :D

Hahah thank you. Red's a lovely fish, despite his spinal deformities he still dances like a maniac.

I wasn't put off. I think everyone has differing opinioms because everyone has different experiences. While there are general guidelines to fish keeping some fish aren't always as calm or aggressive as they should be. Some bettas get along with fish that other bettas don't. And since I don't feel like I am reasy for that I am going to play it safe. I love taking care of Splash and I can tell he loves that 10 gal...I don't think he would be one to share. LOL.

I just want to point out Fish care might be a little different for a species like Bettas but schooling fish are pretty much the same there mind is not build like say a Betta.

I understand and agree fully.
You said you ordered new plants; are those live plants that you ordered?
