Hi all! This is my first post here.
I'm very new to fish, and currently have a betta and a mystery snail in a 2.5 gal tank. My betta pays zero attention to the snail. I think he would do well with other fish as long as they don't go after his fins. I did have another betta and when he would see the other one he would flare up and puff himself up. Seeing the other betta really got him into building a bubble nest.
After finding out that I should really be keeping the betta in a larger tank I began looking into purchasing a ten gallon. Then a friend of mine offered to give me his 20 something gallon tank that he no longer uses.
From what I have gathered so far I'm looking into an AquaClear 50 gal filter, and EcoComplete substrate.
I woud like to add a decent amount plants, but not have it be overwhelmingly plants. (Any suggestions of easy to care for plants would be nice.)
As far as stocking how does this sound?
- 1 male betta
- 1 mystery snail
- 6 to 8 harlequin rabsora
- 6 to 8 panda corys
- ?? ghost shrimp ??
Would that be an adequate amount of fish for the tank?
Thank you all to any answered questions!
