For now, do you have anything to feed the cory until you return him? They cannot live off of just what the Betta misses.

I let a few pellets soak in water and then let them sink for him to find, I think he got them. I also have some flakes, but those cloud water very quickly... but if you think that is a good idea, I'll put a few of those in to sink for food. :(

Okay, that's good. :'( Ugh, poor Benny! He's so spunky right now, exploring the sides of the wall and then "sniffling" for food on the plants and gravel... poor lil guy. How big do you think those tanks are at Petsmart they keep the fish in? There were about 10 of his species and 20 of another kind in one tank. That's a definite overload! But all of those fish were okay. Now he has to go back! Ugh, I guess I should stop moaning and try to figure out how to convince my mom to let me save the little white girl.

They only use smaller tanks there because they know that the fish will be going to a new home soon, not because it's suitable for long term housing.

Petstores also use smaller tanks because the stress of the size usually distracts the agressive fish from fighting.

He will surely find a new home, cories are one of the most popular fish to own.

Me, too. Are you SURE you can't just get a larger tank? Walmart has a bare 10 gallon with no lid for $14. You could just keep the water level a bit lower so your Betta won't jump out. Then you could get 2 buddies for your Cory.

I wish! But I love tanks with lids, so I can fill them up and utilize the space... My betta would be just blissful with a tank that size! But 10 gallons is a huge tank, and a good portion of my dresser is taken up with ATT boxes and things. My room is the only one with some kind of chord connection... Plus I absolutely love my Mini Bow, I think it looks good and Butterfly has already blow a bubble nest in it... his first one since I got him. Ugh! Poor lil Benny. He's so very spunky!
Thanks for your help guys!
