I'm going to second what Bombalurina said about pet store employees -- just as with anything else, your best bet really is to do your own research and have a good idea of what you want and what is true going into the situation. Take it from someone who works in a pet store.

As to what sort of fish you were sold -- it's hard to tell, but they sort of look like guppies to me. As I said though, it's a little difficult to tell.

They look like guppies, and they're silver? I can't see the pictures, but just in case, do they look like either of these?

Um actually they are feeding fish apperently but I got them all a 10 gallon tank. Now they all will have more space. Oh and I also got five neon tetras. Will see how all this goes. Is the last time I'm upping the tanks I can't keep spending on tanks. I have two estras you know? But other than that they all seem fine now.

Feeder fish? Do you mean feeder guppies, or feeder goldfish? If its goldfish(or guppies, for that matter), you need to sell them or something. A 10 gallon isn't even close to big enough for that much fish or waste.

How can it not be big enough if I had known I would have gotten a bigger tank then. Sigh I can't think anymore of what to do. I might put the feeder fish for sell then or something. I don't know.

The fish are too crowded, that many fish for a 10 gallon is way too much. Sorry to break the news. If you get rid of the feeders, though, it'll be fine.

Well I just talked to my mom's boyfriend who keeps fish and used to breed Bettas and he said I can keep all the fish in the 10 gallon so as long as I don't over feed, and feed one day yes one day no and only a little bit as mush as they will actually eat. I think I can od it. These Fedder Fish won't grow much I have two full grown so. If not I will give him some of mine. I want to see how it goes.

I have a blue powdered dawrf gurimi and I was wondering if you can put it with a betta since it has a filter and it has bubbles that have to be in the tank. I was wondering if you can put him with that kind of fish? will the filter hurt the betta to? or will the betta be fine?
