Oh I'm sorry if that got garbled up in there somewhere! They are in 1 gallon bowls while I got the ten gallon tank set up (for Penelope, at least). I would only be adding additional fish to the 10 gallon, not to the gallon sized. The gallon bowls are only for medicating/ temp housing, although Jackson will be in his for a bit because I'm moving in a few weeks, and don't want to move multiple, set up, large tanks.

Thank you, though, for trying to make sure I didn't seriously overcrowd a tank!

What kind of plecos are you getting? Are they both going in the ten gallon?

I don't really think I want a pleco, just because they DO tend to get a little larger. I was thinking that maybe the Otocinclus, since they are smaller, and the nerite snail.

However, the pet shop is really getting me excited about the Butterfly striped loach. It looks like a little stingray and it is so pretty, but I don't know if it would really be compatible. The image at the link looks exactly like the ones they have at the fish place. http://diszhal.info/halak/Sewellia_lineolata.jpg

I'm torn, because they have a huge selection of fish, and even have living reef tanks, and jellyfish, but they just don't seem to know much about Bettas. I said something about a female community tank and they told me in no uncertain terms that no betta should ever be housed with another betta. That butterfly loach sure is pretty though...

for a betta in a ten gallon something you could get is corydoras, or corycats as they're most often called, they're super cute and fun

I was wondering if I could use those. They are really cute, but I've been told I'd need at least 3 of them, because they're schooling fish.
