hello there. Well i was told that corys get along well with bettas. So Ive looked at several stores already,so far no small ones. Im gonna keep looking though! Lol. My betta is in a 10 gallon tank,recently upgraded to it. So here are my questions if i can remember them all. Heh.
From what im told you need 6 corys to be happy lil fellas,but i am also told not to add more than 2-3 new fish to a tank at a time. So,on that note,is it okay to get say 3 now and then 3 more a lil later on?
And how much longer should you wait till you get more? Also i know they should be put in QT for awhile. How long should i keep them in QT? Some sites say 2 weeks,others say a month.
I would set up a critter keeper most likely for QT for them. I do have an extra heater 25w and a small filter i can put on it. What temp should it be set at?
Should ikeep it bare bottomed or put something in it?
Also i read hikari is the best to get for them? the wafers...what else can they have? I already have fd bloodworms,shrimp and daphnia for my betta. Hmmm....do they need flakes too?
When is a good time to feed them.. I think i read at night a lil before lights out...
Do they like alot of plants in their tank? I have 5 fake silk ones in there right now. Also have 2 caves. The bottom is gravel and those colored stones. is that okay?
hmm i think thats it...i might be back though! Lol. thanks to anyone who replies. Im really excited to look for some cories.
Oh wait one more haha. What kinda cory ya think is easiest to find? As in the ones that stay small. I found online so far 4 that stay small. Obviously the dwarf and pygmy,but also the salt & pepper and false bandit. If there are anymore to look out for,id appreciate it. Im gonna find pics to these ones i found so far,put them on my phone so when i go to look at them i can compare and makes sure it is what it says lol. Dont always trust the stores haha.
So yup im done for real now. :)
