    I just put 6 cories, 6 rasboras, and a betta in my 20 gallon long tank. (They betta's not in yet, but he will be this weekend.) Anyway, how should I keep my betta from eating the rasbora food? They eat very slowly and I don't want my betta to get aggressive towards them at feeding time. I...

    Hi! So I just got my tank and I decided to buy a red-blue halfmoon betta (I named him Avenue), and since he looks really small for his tank; I'm still in question whether to get him 4 pygmy cories and two amano shrimps as tank mates. My questions are: -Is this overstocked, considering I have...

    I ordered Eco Complete Planted Black aquarium substrate from Petco to use in my 20 gallon cory tank. I will be getting lots of plants, so I thought it would be good. I thought it was sand, but it came today and it's actually small gravel. I'm worried that it's going to be too rough on my...

The cories were a new addition to the tank, and the first time my betta met them was when they were...

    I'll be buying my betta 7.4 gallon tank soon and I was wondering if I'd get away with anything else in there with him. I'm quite happy him being by himself with some shrimp/snails, but I'd love to have a small group of pygmy cories with him if I can. I plan a sand substrate, silk plants and some...

I am very willing to undertake the extra maitnence that will be needed if i have a betta and 2-3 cories in a 5 gal, I think they are just...
