Hi guys, longtime lurker but first time poster here. So I have one male betta (Robert-the-Bruce) right now in a 5 gallon tank, but I plan to upgrade tanks soon. I had originally just planned to move up to a 10 gal, but after seeing how cheap tanks are on Craigs List, I may go to 20 or larger. I guess I had a couple questions about possible tankmates.
First, if I bring some fish home (I was thinking several neon tetras) and put them in the tank and Robert doesn't instantly go after them as soon as he sees them, can I assume they're safe, or do I need to keep watch on the tank for quite a while?
Second, Robert really likes feeding time, and has yet to ever let food go uneaten. Would this be a problem for feeding the other fish? I don't want my betta to over-indulge himself with his roommate's food
Thanks a lot!
