I recently purchased a gorgeous Veil~Tail Betta along with a 10 gallon tank, a few plants, and a cave or two. After letting Gem settle into his home, I decided to try introducing a few tank-mates! I adopted 5 black skirt tetras (which do not nip at Gems fins, thankfully) and a ghost shrimp or two since they only had two in stock. Anyways, I'm fairly new at Betta Care, and would like to know if I am properly taking care of him. His 10 gallon tank is cycled, kept at a constant 76 degrees Fahrenheit, and has a phenomenal filter. He and his tankmates coexist peacefully, with plenty of room and hiding spaces. I really have fallen in love with my fish, and want him to be as happy as possible! Tips? Advice? Feedback?
P.S Gem is the little spot of blue behind one of the plants:) I just added the huge broken jug cave so you can see the tetras exploring. The ghost shrimp is inside the smaller cave.
