Do U Think....?

I have a 15 gallon tank that im thinking of dividing. I already have one betta and 3 cory's in the 15 gallon. Without really thinking it through, I bought another betta withouth a real place to put hm. So for now he is in a 2 gallon tank. I really dont like the 2 gallon, as I feel it is too small and doesnt provide adequate filtration. So Im thinking of dividing the 15 gallon and having one betta along with 2 corys on each side. I know corys like to be in groups of 3 or more...but do you think having only 2corys on each side will be sufficient??

you could mark off a 3 gallon section for one of the betta and leave the corys as a school

I agree with Jynx. Divide a smaller section for the second betta, and leave the larger area for the other betta+cories. You could do up to 5 gallons for the new boy.

You could put in an ADF or ghost shrimp in there without overstocking. The only problem will arise if your betta decides to bully them.

I've got a 10 gallon with (soon to be) 4 corys and 3 otocinclus

It depends how big the section is. With 3 gallons, I'd do a ghost shrimp or two. But if you decide to give him 4 or 5 gallons, and ADF or two should be fine. :)

well its a 15 gallon tank. so i might try to give him at least 5. I worry about ADF feeding. I know they eat meat...and i just think that would dirty up the tanks more.

really its hard to overstock an aquarium if the fish are the correct size and you change the water often enough!
