Hello Betta fish community!
I'm new on this forum and after reading a couple of the threads thought it would be a great idea to join!
My girlfriend had a 10G tank sitting around and we decided to try and make a community tank with a betta in it. One day I got home from work and she had bought the fish. We put him in a small bowl for like 2 weeks but then managed to get the 10G running. His name is Rupert! I think he's a male Crown Tail from what I've been reading on the boards here. Can anyone confirm that? (see the pictures of Rupert the super fish below :) ) lol
Also I had a couple of questions as a newbie for you and would really appreciate your input!
1. My LFS said I could have a community tank with like a couple of plecos and some Tetras, I was thinking of like Ghost Tetras or something like that. Do you guys think its a bad idea or it will actually work out pretty well?
2. If I'm trying to cycle the 10G tank should I not change the water at all while doing it? (Yes I have a filter in it)
3. Rupert keeps looking at his reflection (mostly when we turn the light on) and of course being a lil dominating territorial beast of the undersea he gets in his "attack stance". I'm afraid his lil heart is going to explode after doing that for hours, should I let him be? or try to cover the glass with something so he stops doing that?
Thanks a lot! :)
