I don't have immediate plans for a new tank, as I haven't figured out where I could put it. >< BUT I have money in my pocket, and I can't help but ponder the possibilities or visit Petco and window shop for my future fish...
Presently, Casper is in a 5.5 gallon planted tank by his lonesome. He had a tankmate, but our little nerite snail escaped. I'm perfectly happy with the
setup, and there's no need to upgrade, but boy would I like Casper to live happily in a community tank. Or I could set up a sorority!! So do I want a 10 gallon community +male betta? I'd probably keep my 5.5 running, get a second male, and put the more aggressive one of the two by himself. If I go with a 10 gallon, what could I have in addition to the male and a school of dwarf/pygmy cories?
I'm assuming that if I had a sorority (minimum of 5 females, right?) and wanted community fish along with them, I'd have to get a 20 gallon? Again, in addition to the cories, what could I add to a 20 gallon sorority?
I don't know if I've ever seen this, but if I had a lowlow visibility divider, could I have a 20 gallon split up, having 15 gallons a sorority and 5 gallons sectioned off for a male?
Though I have the money now, gosh I hope I don't run out tomorrow and spend $125+ on a tank setup tomorrow. Gotta take it slow.
