Your welcome. Yes, it's called a Cory Catfish. They do well in groups, great for 10 gallons, etc etc. I suggest to move the Glofish since, they're Zebra Danios too and need more space than a 10 gallon. Do you mean the female Betta and the catfish? They can't be mates, one species can't breed to another species so to speak. Oh, and I'm glad to help so feel free to ask a question if necessary. :)

Could the current caused by the outflow from my filter be too strong for my fish? If so, how do I lessen the impact?

I know this is highly contested, but are weekly 100% changes too much for an uncycled 2.5gal? I've been told I should be doing smaller, more frequent changes instead of one big one.

I think it's a better safe than sorry thing. But honestly in a 2.5.... I would do as much as I can without removing the fish 2xs a week. maybe do a 100% once a month... Its usually up to personal preference and the individual fish...

"As much as I can without removing the fish"
How much would that be? I have gravel siphon that I usually use to clean the gravel, but I'm afraid I'd suck her up in it O_O

Usually enough water for the fish to swim in. I actually have a planted tank... so I really dont vacuum or have ever changed all of the water >.< most I'd change is about 50%. Now I do less than 25, because I dont want to agitate the Shrimps with a change in water chemistry...

I just got a 5.5 tank for my one betta who is in a 1 gallon. The heater I have is only rated for 5 gallons. Will my heater be okay for this new tank or should I get another? Thanks :)
