I'm super excited that I'll be setting up my sorority over the next month. Tomorrow I'll be picking up my 10 gal tank at Petco since they are having their $1/gal sale. I'll be getting my 2 newest ladies from Florida on Thursday or Friday, they get to be QT'd for a couple weeks. During that time I'll be picking up my heater, filter, and all my other decorations for their tank so I can get it cycling. Plus two other ladies from my LFS (or if my bf is feeling generous we will go to the MN Betta Shop!)
I really only have one question to my tank, and that is: Do I Need
to get a school(5-6) of cories to go in the tank with my ladies? I'd prefer not to, but if it will help my girls to be happier and pick on each other less? Would getting a few snails work more so than the cories?
