I have a male betta in his own 5 gallon and am debating adding something in with him ... I am thinking 3 ghost shrimp or a mystery snail ... Any suggestions? ( so far he has only flared at my camera , Apparently he found the flash offensive)
PS I am running 10 gallons filtration in his tank so thats not an issue.
Also I am planning a 5 gallon ADF tank ... Would it be a possibility to add a small female or should I not even risk it? ( I LOVE ADF's )
When it's cycled, you could add in either 2-3 shrimp OR 1 nerite/tiger snail. A mystery snail grows too big and produces more ammonia than it cleans.. A 5G is pretty small so you don't want to overload it. I think you'll need a 10G to house a betta with an ADF. How many ADFs do you want? I'm pretty *sure* they produce a lot of ammonia. Remember they need to be QT'd at least 3 months before going in a tank.
Oh, that's great news! I don't really like frogs, all slimy. @-@
If their bioload is pretty small, I guess 2 ADFs in a 5G is good. But I think adding a betta is pushing it. Ghost shrimp are great! I had 4, one was preggers. And as always, the babies died because they're apparently filter feeders from what I've read.
