I'm setting up my 10g tonight. I cleaned it last night. And everyone says I need between 4-6 female bettas in the tank.
-Should I start off with 4 and then maybe add another one down the road or is 4 fine?
-When algae starts to grow, what kind of algae eater should I get and how many? (I can't stand having algae in the tank.) Also, what do you feed those?
-Drina and Ami get fed different amounts of food because Drina is younger/smaller than Ami. Drina gets 3 pellets a day and Ami gets 4 or 5 a day. How do you make sure they get what they are supposed to get? Or should I just not worry?
-Should I add a live plant or just stay with the silk?
-How long should I quarantine the new girls before adding them to the tank?
-How do I get the new girls in with my current girls? (Should I float them so they can see Ami & Drina before realizing them?)
What kind of personalities should I look for in the two new girls?
