Me and my roommate have recently bought a 29 gallon fish tank. We have had it for about a month now and i would consider ourselves still pretty amateur, we dont know too much about this stuff yet. However we do have our male betta living with a community of 20+ fish and everyone gets along totally fine. I have searched the internet and can not find anything like this occurring before, especially in such a small tank (29). We have plenty of things in the tank for hiding and stuff. I recently went down to our local river and got some good drift wood and added it. I just want to know if anyone else has done this before. Dont worry i will post pictures once i can get some good ones. But here is everything we have in our 29 gallon tank:
1 male betta
5 Neon Tetra
7 Zebra somthing small fish, like neon tetra
2 Clear fish, again dont know name, about inch and half Ghost Catfish
1 Shark, all black, red back fin Red Tailed Shark
1 Shark, All red fins, Grey body maybe called Rainbow Shark?
3 Ghost shrimp
2 bottom feeder fish
1 Pearl Bailey maybe Gouami (sp)
1 Silver Dollar
1 Angle Fish
1 Clown Loach (sp) loch?
1 River Monster, thats what we called it, think its a Plecostomus
But like i said i could not find this happening anywhere els online, and with this small of tank but everyone does fine, no fights ever, it does seem like a lot of fish unless they are all hiding. We have a lot of fake plants, 1 peice of drift wood on bottom, 2 suctioncuped on sides, 1 lava like rock, and 3 plastic store bought cave things. I just want to konw if this is really amazing or if were just lucky. Like i said they have all been living together for about 1 month now. Betta was the first to be put in tank for a couple days. Will post pictures if anyone comments on this, my first post btw. Please give us your feedback!
ps we really want to add one more betta, they look so cool, horrible idea?
