I inherited my betta, a red Veil tail named 'Count' (but lovingly called 'Fishy'), from a good friend at school. No one is quite sure whether I'm still fish-sitting for the summer or have assumed full custody.
I've recently moved him to a 10gal tank. My friend thinks he should have company in his new home and suggested that we go fish shopping once we get back to school in September. I know the suggested method of having a betta in a community tank is to introduce the betta last, so my question is this: Is it possible to successfully introduce a small school to an established betta tank? Or should I tell my friend to buy her own tank if she wants more fish?
Also, I don't have a heater YET (because my a/c stays set on 78dgs all the time). I'm planning to buy one in the next week hopefully, and I'm wondering if there's a particular type/style/brand to get so that Fishy is most comfortable and safe.
Sorry to be long-winded...
