I have 1 more question!! I just put blossum in her tank and she just seems to be sitting there next to the filter and not exploring the tank. Does that mean something is wrong??

She may just be getting used to her new home.

I'd give her some time to get used to her home. Congrats on your new addition!

Lets see...

You said you just set up the tank a day before you added the betta. The tank has not gone through a cycle, and she is probably suffering from ammonia posioning (soon, at least) and/or a cold temperature. Then again, she could be shocked from a new tank, but I believe it would be the first.

Hi

I have just set up my tropical tank, and am waiting a couple of weeks before beginning to stock it. I would love to have a betta as one of my fish. What are good fish to put with one? Would neon or cardinal tetras be ok? Someone has told me these are fin nippers, but I have never experienced this with them. All the neons of my experience have been extremely peaceful. Tank is 10 gallons. I am contemplating a shoal of 6 tetras, and one betta.

Opinions?

Hello and welcome to FishForum. I think it depends on the personality of your betta as far as what he will or will not get along with.

Cardinals and Neons are always nippy to bettas, from what I've seen. Bettas are not community fish and should be alone.

But, saying no one reads that part, go for something less nippy. All tetras are out. Cories are great.
