He is blue and the tips/edges of his fins are white, and he has two red little fins underneath him.




This is Mr Grooper, he is a cat fishy bottom eater, sorry i cant remember the type of fish he is. I also got 2 ghost shrimp, do you think that is too much for such a small tank?




On my wish list to get soon are a leaf hammock for Noni, and a tank heater, and also filter refills.

Do you think i need the air stone, i havent really had it on because the filter is pretty powerful and when i have the air stone on Noni looks like he has trouble swimming.

Also i want to add a light to it.
What a CUTE tank and BEAUTIFUL bettas!!!

Does that tank come with a light?

Welcome to the forum & the WONDERFUL world of bettas!!!!

I think Cories have to be in groups of 3-4+? But their tank has to be 10G+ I was told :(....too bad for me, I think they're so cute but I've only got 5Gs XD

Thank you Lionmom , the tank did not come with a light but they do sell ones that you can put with them, i will see what i can find at the store when i go there, hopefully this weekend. Bahamut i didnt know that, they are cute,ol. I get mad cause i asked the girl and told her the EXACT setup that i had and what could i get for the bottom and that is what she suggested, ugh.

You're welcome - it really IS cute!!!

It always pays to do you own research. While some pet store employees know their stuff, many don't - sadly!

In any event, you now know and have the option of either returning the cory or setting up a better home for him and getting him some friends.

Here's an idea - get a 10 gal. kit, get more corries and move them & one of your betta boys in. That way, you have the Marina 5 gal. freed up for ANOTHER betta!!!!

That sounds like a plan.

In a 5 gal.? No idea. Shrimp are pretty hit & miss - could work or could be a nice betta snack. Depends on the betta.

Some like snails, but they poop a LOT!!!!
