I've been really lucky that my betta girls have ignored my apple snail. I saw Topaz only analyze her once as she was cleaning the glass.

I do believe the cories are much happier in groups of 6 or more less stress on them. I would be a bit reserved on keeping all of the cories w 3 other fish and a betta sound like a bit too much for a twelve gallon tank to me. No matter what you do from my experience the Betta will be King of the tank. Not a bad thing tho since he will be the most beautiful fish there umm can you tell Im a betta snob lol. If you do keep all of those fish in the tank just be sure you have more than adequate filtration on it is all....GOOD LUCK

I'm a snail grandma! Just an update on my previous message. Cobalt ate all of the egg sacs, so I didn't think that I would have any left of the baby snails. He even tore up his body and fins one night to get the sacs behind the heater.

Today I noticed tiny tan beings moving up and down my tank walls. I looked up close and they are snails. I have counted 10 but probably have more. I took Cobalt out of the tank until I can safely move the babies into their own tank. They will all be a beautiful shade of blue. The blue Ramshorn snails go anywhere from powder blue to dark blue in color. Mine was a grayish blue.

If anyone wants some you can have them for shipping cost only. I'm sure that I will have a quite a bit in no time with as fast as they reproduce.

Well, I finally have my setup going. I went with the 12-gallon Eclipse and, after letting the biowheel run for 24-hours, I added my little lovely betta. He (I assume it is a male given the long fins) seems rather shy right now, hiding in the upper back corner above the heater for the most part right now, though I would assume that is normal for a new environment.

The guide that came with my tank suggests adding new fish over 4-6 weeks. Since I would like to add a few cory cats and a few ghost shrimp, what might the suggested intervals be?

Update: The little sweetie is now hiding behind a little stone arch and peeking out to see what is going on.
