5.5 gallon with one male betta splenden and some community fish (most likely cories)
10 gallon with one male betta splenden and some community fish (either cories only or cories and neon tetras)
I know cories like sand as supposed to gravel, which I will be getting if I get cories.
Thank you in advance!
Anything smaller than ten gallons is suited For only one Betta.
Betta's don't always tolerate other fishes and are best kept alone for this reason.
Betta's prefer 78 to 82 degree temps which is too warm for small tetra's and or cory's who much prefer cooler 72 to 75 degree temps over the long haul.
