I have an old 40g I plan on setting up and turning into an NPT.
What I really want in my tank is a betta. I dont know why, but I'm completely biased towards getting one. I love their personalities and the way they act.
I'd also like 4-7 cories of some kind and cherry shrimp.
This tank should be planted quite a bit and the plants should provide some nice hiding spots, I'd imagine.
maybe another species of fish, but I don't know. Do you think shrimp, trumpet snails, corydoras and a flashy betta would do well in my 40g? Or would it still look really empty? Should I not get a betta?
