Hi! I am just starting out in fish keeping an am learning so much by reading books from the library and forums.
I was given a betta in a glass cube. I immediately upgraded him to a 1 gallon tank. I do 100% daily water changes and he seems quite happy. He came to me very sad and faded looking. He had little pin holes on his fins that have all healed up, his color is vibrant and he seem just active and happy.
I just got him a 20 gallon Long tank so that he can have more room to swim and I can keep the water conditions stable without so many water changes. I am currently on day 4 of a fishless cycle. I was just wondering if I can keep 8 axelrod rasboras with him. I really wanted to keep neon tetras but am so afraid of fin nipping. Any suggestions?
I want La La (Betta) to have plenty of room, but would also like to bring life to the tank with some schooling fish.
I have a 20 gallon Long tank
power filter meant for 10 - 30 gallons
oh and a master fresh water test kit.
