A 55 gallon tank with 6 betta girls, 4 ghost shrimp, a pleco, a very young platy, possibly 4 guppies (petsmart gave them to me for free. They're in my mom's tank until they're old enough that my girls won't eat them.. LOL Not positive they are guppies though) and a few neon tetras?
What about minnows? I had a rosy red minnow I was going to feed to my turtle, but I changed my mind and let her go into my tank..
but then I got her 3 more minnow friends because quite frankly, she was beginning to think she was a betta (no, seriously..she followed them, slowed down her swimming, was relaxed and calm..) and she STILL thinks she's a betta.. She's so confused about these new minnows.. LOL
Anyways, does that sound like an alright community tank? Should I put the minnows in a 5.5 gal by themselves because of how speedy they are?
I'm worried they will tick off my betta girls, but in a 55gal with plenty of hiding spots, would that be an issue?
Thanks in advance!!
