    Hi guys :) I'm setting up a 130l planted tank for a male betta, and some buddies. Research suggests bristlenose plecos, panda or albino corydoras, harlequin rasboras, neon or cardinal tetras, some shrimp and snails could potentially all enjoy the same space, if it was big enough. Obviously I...

    I'm looking to add to my tank. I have a male betta, and a nertile zebra snail. Tomorrow I plan to get one more zebra snail and possibly an additional tank mate! I have my betta in a tank at 80 degrees, a live plant, gravel and a hammock. He seems very happy but I want to add a little bit...

    Hi everyone!! :) So I've had my Betta fish Dory for about a year now.

  8. 6 Gallon Tank w/ male betta. Best tankmate??

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello all! I have a 6.25 planted tank with one happy male betta. What would be the best tank mate(s) for him? I would prefer a small school of Tetras or Dwarf Cories (4 or 5 fish), but I've read that both need at least a 10 gallons. I'm also open to the idea of a snail, but not as excited...

    I want more betta fish, end of story. However, my boyfriend says no. So instead of breeding bettas like I would LOVE to do, I decided to get a snail. I haven't bought one yet, and don't plan on telling Boyfriend I got one until he comes home and sees it, if he ever sees it, but I digress. I...
  14. Any opinions on new tank mates?

    Betta Chat
    I have a ten gallon tank for about three months now. I started with Fyren (betta), 6 neon tetras and 6 ghost shrimp. All the ghost shrimp died which I'm fairly certain I can blame on the heat where I live :-? (I have the tank much cooler now). I was wondering if any one has had any luck with...
