Cosmo is a great name IMO.

I've read somewhere that Msamaki meant fish in Egypt.

Don't alter the pH (have you done that before with your other fish). 7.6 is perfectly fine for bettas and adding a store bought buffer without knowing how to correctly lower the pH could lead to the death of your fish.

What are your other numbers (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate?)

wow not really sure what to write here and for me that in its self is rare..... i was under the impression that you fully understood the responsibility involved in moving forward. such as testing, cycling, etc....
i apologize for my inaccurate assumption...
sailor Kennedy wonderful post and every one great job i offering advice in this area.. i look forward to hearing from all of you again....
at this moment however i must remove myself from further discussion and i truely hope your fish does well, though in perfect honesty (with out attempting to be brutal or mean in any way) i am doubtful...
please keep in mind ladies and gentlemen that personal attacks are not acceptable and that advice given is not a required course of action... if you feel that you are becoming upset over anything in any ones posts you have the option to not read them and of course to report to a moderator or the TFK team.

It doesn't matter. Your fish will adapt to the ph. Mine is the same as yours for all four of my fish tanks. What will harm a fish is a changing ph. Don't use ph up or down anymore. At all. Ever. No matter what. :)

Just test for ammonia, nitrites and nitrates every day while you're cycling. Good luck with Buddy.

That doesn't mean he's marbling. He's just becoming less stressed. That's usual when bettas first get a new home. Imagine being shipped in a tiny bag and forced into a cup. You'd probably be stressed, but as soon as you found an owner and got space (in this case 10 whole gallons) you'd brighten up and become happy.

Side note, when you get your cories AFTER you cycle, make sure you take Buddy out and move around the plants and cave then put the cories in and then Buddy. It will make sure Buddy doesn't try to defend "his" territory since everything has been moved around. So he'll be less likely to attack them.

If you adapt them properly to a change in pH, then yes they will be fine in your water.

Cories are very sensitive to their water conditions. If their water is not maintained properly then they'll die.

DO NOT GET A PLECO. They need more than over 100 gallons to fully grow. You can't provide for it so just forget getting one.
