Greetings everyone, I am new to this website and reletively new to fish keeping and need some help. So I really want to add a betta to my aquarium and I have a few questions.
1. I have a 10 gallon tank with 4 albino corys and 3 ghost shrimp. I was wondering if I could add a betta and have them coexist?
2. I have read some fourms on here and saw that bettas require slow water movement. The filtration system I have in my tank is for a 20 to 30 gallon. Is that way to powerfull for a betta? If so can you please recomend what type of filtration system I should get.
3. This kind of falls in with #2. I have a bubble maker should I remove it?
4. I have also read that bettas can easily contract fungal infections. What can I do to prevent this from happening?
-this also is part of #4. This is worst case scenerio. I have my beta and it gets a fungal infection. I have read that a salt bath helps but my corys are extremely scensitive to salt, is there any other way to treat the infection with out harming my corys. Again this is just for precaution.
I have always wanted a betta. I went into a petsmart the other day and saw them stacked ontop of each other in cups most dead,hurt, or dying. It made me really mad, I want to at least resuce one. I really want to provide my future buddy with a nice home. So any help will be greatly appriciated
