Catfish??

I'm not sure if they were catfish or what. But they were small little bottom feeders with antennas (Sp.?) and such. SMALL! I also heard somewhere that I could get cories? I know I've been over this before but I am persistant to get one. Gah. Mixed signals. :S

It is a 5 gallon BTW. I recently put rocks in the bottom of the tank so there are a whole lot for hiding places. (Sorta)

For cory catfish, you'd need a 10 gallon tank, sorry. They like to be in groups of at least 3, as they are shoaling fish. They are usually great with bettas, but a 10g is the minimum in my opinion. I have 4 albino corys in my 10 gallon tank with a betta.

Dwarf cories maybe? They are cuter too!

Like I've said before, there is simply not enough space for it!

Your aquarium filtration capacity for above selected species is 207%.
Recommended water change schedule: 25% per week.
Your aquarium stocking level is 124%

This is what I got when I did the Aqadvisor thing for you. An over stocked tank makes it more likely for you to have sick fish because it is HARD to keep up with the water quality.

Please listen to the people on this forum, they know what they're talking about..

+1 to Doggy hog. It wouldnt be too smart to add corys or any other catfish.
