Minnows?

So I didn't realize that minnows were basically sold like they sell ghost shrimp and stuff. What are the space requirements and could I keep them with a betta? How many need to live together?

If your talking about White clouded mountain minnows? I know a bit about them :) They like cooler water but can be kept in higher temps. They are a shoaling fish so 5 is minimum They can be a bit nippy but mainly leave bettas alone. They like a current in the water as there from fast streams. They breed quite easily if in the right conditions. Females are plumper and males and smaller and thinner.

Do you mean the feeder rosy red minnows? They tolerate 50-80 degrees farenheit. A ten gallon could hold one male and 3 females. They breed like cichilids, and are very cool fish. They just need caves, to lay eggs and stake out territory.

I have a ten gallon divided in three. Would minnows be out of the question?

Yes, the only thing you could keep in their are snails, shrimp, and frogs.
Edit: If you toke out one section, you could keep some minnows on each side. Although, five gallons is not ideal.
