1- in a newly cycled tank algae pellets are good for them, but after its been up and running for about 3 months don't worr about it

2- prly, but your betta will DEFINENTLY eat the babies... Almost all fish, even shrimp will eat shrimp babies.

If you decide to get cories, 4 or more is preferable :)

hey um...fishyinpa and dramaqueen...bamboo got used to the pleco. he (poseidon) is quiet and is not scaring bamboo...if he was scaring him, he would hide in his cave. they seem happy together. I have a question; i fed them both an hour or 2 ago. bamboolikes his food but poseidon didn't even see that i gave him food. do you think i should remove it?

I agree. A pleco cannot live in a one gallon bowl.

I think we have a unanimous consent. I am really sorry, 1 gallon really isn't good for anything other than a few inverts. If its the largerest tank u can have its ok to keep a betta in there, but not reccomended. plecos grow giant and need a large (atleast 55g) heated, filtered, cycled tank..

Good lord! he is to big NOW! your betta is to big NOW!

Ok, so going off the only some times correct rule, 1" of fish per gallon of water, your betta will get about to 3 inches or alittle more... TO SMALL OF A TANK

true. he also needs a cycled heated filtered tank (talking about the pleco, bettas don't need this, but they do like it) You need to take him out now. I am sorry.
