Hey fishman!
I was thinking about guppies but they seem small and really shiny XD Girls might give them hair cuts.. I don't know.. Anyone had luck with guppies?

Take caution with the guppies because if you need to treat the tank with salt they can't have it.

I wonder if the whole weight thing counts here.. In the wild, single lions wont go after hyenas if they're more in numbers because of the weight of those hyenas being more than one lion's.. It's some law of nature... I think I'd need more than 5 neons to balance it out lol!

Any one of my girls will always have stress stripes at anytime! I put in the 2 new big girls, they're double the size of all my others.. I had to time out one and the other is not so bad.. She chases but no nipping.. Tank has never been so well behaved.. I'm worried

I don't normally have salt in the tank, I have plants too so it's a no no anyway. :/ But aren't guppies prone to betta attacks?

It really just depends on your girls. I know of people having good luck with fancy male guppies and male Bettas I'm not sure about in a sorority though.

Ah, my girls are vicious! One's an attention hog that refuses to give up the front to anyone, she'll chase them away.. Another is a ninja, she slowly comes up from below, gives a girl a small nip in the anal/ caudal fin and gleefully watches them run.. One is usually beat up because she's at the bottom but is determined to go up! No. 4 is the sanest, she has no nips and doesn't bother with fights.. New girls are still not settled. Chunkers loves to dart around and ruin the calm and Awesome Sauce will flare away to kingdom come.. That's why I'm worried about the guppies lol!

Yay fishman! Congrats :D

Hmm I don't know if tetras would be bad necessarily with your tank. But they can nip. How about some cherry barbs or something similar?

Now just to wait 10 days for the driftwood is done releasing tannins. And until I get a thermometer. And until I'm not lazy enough to sand down the terra cotta pots. and until I get live plants. And- I'm stopping...
