So I currently have a 10 gallon planted low tech excel dosed tank. I have a large java fern plant, good healthy bunch of Wisteria and a good healthy bunch Cabomba.
The tank is filtered and heated (about 76 degrees)
I had 1 betta as my feature fish, and a small family of pygmy cory cats 5*
Unfortuantley Turbo, my betta, passed away and I was planning on adding a new betta into the tank. I've heard 5-7 pygmys with a betta is fine for a 10 gallon. My issues is this... I have 2 confirmed, possibly 3 pygmy fry that have been living/growing in the tank for the last few months. It was unexcpected and I wasn't sure if they would survive, but one of them is actually getting to be a decent size where hes pretty visible. If my cory total becomes 8, Will it be impossible to introduce a betta?
The tank has been established for a while, and the filer media is good. I actually had a sponge filer going too, but somethings wrong and it isn't working now (still need to fix that).
Any insight would be most appreciated.
