OK so my dad is really pressing a community. I'm thinking maybe, but I want lots of fish! I might do this...

1 male Betta
3 guppies
3 albino cories
5 neon tetra

With the new Betta I'm getting. Then I'm 126% stocked. Yes, it is a bit over stocked.

BUT. If I have lots of live plants (already ordered them!)

3 tropica swords

2 bunches of anarchis

2 bunches of foxtail "green" (With the bunches the plants will grow a bunch because I'll be cutting the stems in half nd replanting new bunches all the time)

It might lighten the load a little. Can I make it by with once weekly 50% water changes in this type of tank? Or would it have to be twice weekly?

I know most people reccomend understocking, but this would be such a cool tank...

I have a question too, I tried posting a thread a while back but no one answered. I was unable to find any raw shrimp (which was crazy, I live near a coast and went to three stores! but oh well...) so I put in a pre-cooked shrimp. Will it still work? I put in a couple pieces of betta pellets for good measure *lol*
