So I want to try cory cats with my betta. He's in a ten gallon. I'm planning to get three false julii cory cats. I'm not sure if he'd get along with the cories, so I plan on returning them if I see him being too aggressive.
So here's the question, I obviously want to quarantine them before I add them to the tank. But I don't have any other tank that is bigger than 2.5 gallons, besides the tank my betta is in. My plan is to take the 1 gallon kritter keeper I have and float it in the 10 gallon tank for a week, just so that the betta could get used to them. It would be secured so it wouldn't tip over. Obviously it won't be filtered or anything. So, would this stress the cory cats out? And if not, how often should I do a water change for the tank? The other option is to put them in the 2.5 gallon with a heater, but also not cycled. I dunno. Here is a picture of what I plan on doing.
