Smile New to bettafish.com & New Betta!

Hey Everyone! I'm new to bettafish.com and joined because I've always loved betta fish and just bought a new one last week! I thought I would post picture since he is so photogenic. As soon as I get my camera out he starts swimming to the front of the tank. His name is Perseus and he is also living with a small catfish. They get along perfectly and even lay in the tanks cave together at night.

Here are some pictures!







^You can see the catfish in this picture.

I'm also wondering what type of catfish that is. It doesn't really look like a cory, and some catfish get HUGE.

He is a leopard cory, or i think another name is julii cory? max size is about 2 to 21/2 inches and if he happens to get bigger i have a 40 gallon set up in my living room.

Oh, he is a cory! Well no matter his type, corries NEED to be in groups of at least 3, preferably 4. You may not see it now, but he will be really stressed out and lonely without any cory friends. What size tank is he in right now? If it's a 10gallon, you should have no problem adding 3 more cories. :)
