Thank you! Feeding bloodworms shouldn't be too hard, my betta hates them. I'll make sure to get the sinking pellet and algae wafers. Crossing my fingers that Kiba is good with the cories.

It'd be like, reaalllly overstocked broswinski. Just have some cute lil' cories and a betta. Add a few shrimp if you want a little more, but that all yer can do.

Make sure that you have a backup tank in place in case they need to be separated.

For what it's worth, I have a shoal of pygmy cories (collectively called "The Itty Bitty Fishy Committee") that have shared their tank with my bettas throughout the years.

Out of all bettas I've had, only one tried to murder my cories and so he was rapidly transferred into his own tank. The rest of my bettas either ignored them or hung out with them. :)

Good luck!

I do have a second tank on hand so I'm not too worried about that aspect, even though I'll be disappointed. It's good to know that the majority of bettas seem to work well with companions though.

I think your betta is gorgeous by the way.
