So I have a 10 gallon tank and I've read that albino cories can live with bettas. I know it depends on personality and I'm prepared to take them back if need be. I just don't want to make him upset or stressed out.
I was wondering if anyone knows how to introduce new fish into a betta's tank? I realize he's probably established the tank as his territory. If I do end up putting them in, how will I know if he is stressed?
Is putting a divider a good idea temporarily until they get accustomed to each other? I've heard of all kinds of ideas and we wanted to get some tomorrow or Thursday (if they have them in stock).
I know the other fish should have come first and then the betta, but he was an unexpected purchase and we just bought everything at like 11 PM in the store for him.
I don't have an adjustable heater and the box says it's supposed to keep it at 78 degrees, but my thermometer looks more like 80 degrees, I don't know how accurate it is. I know that's a bit on the warm side for cories, will it be a problem?
Anyway, here's what my tank looks like:
Any suggestions or pointers would be great. Thanks.
