I recently got a 10gal tank. Started out with 2 male bettas with a divider. After a week of getting the second betta he died unexpectedly. He seemed perfectly healthy, I dont know what happened. I cleaned the whole tank, did a 100% change and then put the surviving male back in. He has the whole 10gals now. I dont want to divide it again, but want to go ahead with my original plan. I was going to do a community before I fell in love with the second betta.
This is my plan. Please tell me any concerns you may have or if you think this is overstocking.
+6-8 Pygmy Corydoras
+8-10 Ghost Shimp
+1-2 Nerite snails
+1 elephant ear plakad betta
I am getting the snails and shrimp first. I want to be sure he is okay with the shrimp before getting the school of pygmy corys. Then I will get the corys in probably a month or so.
Does this sound good? I dont mind not getting the snails. I definitely want at least a few shrimp (I can get only a few though, if 8-10 is too much. Though their bioload is so little i think they are okay.) And I defintely want a school of small fish, and these guys seem to be perfect. Thanks!
