I have a new 6.6 gallon tank that I'm fishless cycling right now for my betta (Charlie) and am looking for input on tankmates! Pics are of the cycling tank & Charlie's current 1g set-up. New tank is 8.13" W X 24" L X 9.25" H, heated, filtered, sand substrate w/river rocks (I think that's what they're called) & planning on more plants. I also plan on moving Charlie's homemade sponge filter to the new tank with him.
Ideas so far:
-1 african dwarf frog, 3-4 pygmy, panda or other small cories & Charlie
-Just the ADF (maybe 2) & Charlie
-Just the cories (maybe 5) & Charlie
-Divided tank w/another betta
Charlie seems to be somewhat bored by himself, so I'd like to set it up with tankmates (or divided) so he will have something to keep him entertained. The first option is the one I'd really like to do, but I think that might be pushing the tank capacity.
