Hi I am planing on setting up a 5 of 10 gallon (not sure yet) aquarium for 1 male and some female bettas with some shrimp (hopefully red cherry shrimp if I can find a local suplier) and I need some advice on betta preferences.
1.What kind of substrate gravel or sand?
2.Planted of unplanted? What kind of plants?
3.How many females for a 5 gallon? For a 10 gallon?
4.Will i need some other kind of alge eater besides the shrimp? If so what kind?
5.Which is better Live food vs. Frozen vs. Freeze dried?
6.What kind of filter if i use Sand? If i use Gravle (gravel filter of external)?
7.Do i need a heater?
Feel free to answer and or all of the above. Any extra knowledge you have please share to.
