AccaliaJay I used to have a thermometer is just isn't moving from his old one gallon tank. XD

LittleBettaFish If you don't have a thermometer, you have no idea of knowing the exact temperature of his water.

WCMM definitely do better in cooler water. I believe they are considered as subtropical fish, and being kept in warmer water will shorten their lifespan.

Anyway, they are definitely not a suitable fish for a five gallon tank in spite of their relatively small size.

AccaliaJay Well I don't have a heater and he eats perfectly fine so his waters not that cold. Also grabbing a thermometer this weekend. If they have any.

RussellTheShihTzu The lowest temperature tolerated (72F/73F) by Betta is higher than the highest temperature tolerated by White Clouds (71F). Note I said "tolerated" and not "suggested." At 72F/73F Betta can become lethargic and refuse to eat.

(sorry just had to share lol)
Wow! I would have loved to see ones that tall.

AccaliaJay Just not my luck huh XD but I did read some tomato plants just don't bloom in pots. My brothers neighbor planted a bunch in my brothers yard and they had lots of tomatoes but the plants also grew the next year in places that they didn't even get planted near so...

and dont add the minnows in with your betta, they need different water temps, you cant forget that many species simply cant be stocked together because of their individual requirements

like I said goldfish are a no go, they will kill their selvs in that small of a tank, not to mention that the will massively outgrow the tank (if they ever even get to grow)

I really dont know how it would be possible to keep a tank parameters in check with no live plants and more then like one fish in that small of a space
Also I forgot to mention it did start flowering. But they just fell off without ever getting tomatoes.

AccaliaJay Okay thank you. I'm seriously hoping that they have guppies. I have wanted some for so long. Originally wanted some before I got Blaze but then decided to test to see if I can actually keep a fish alive for a while and well 3 months later I think its time to add on some more responsibility. But seriously if they don't have guppies I might just ask why they don't stock them since their apparently pretty easy to unless you have massive amounts where they breed like bunnies. They might get more business with guppies. I mean they even had a turantula. Not everyone likes spiders x.x More people probably like fish then they do spiders.

kjg1029 yes as I had explained in my original post the plants would provide a place to hide, and as someone else had mentioned it would help with agression. so yes they need things to swim/hide in
