Sounds like a plan! false julii don't get very large , I have a shoal of eight and at nearly three years old the largest might be close to two inches.
On a related matter,, I seldom visit the betta section of this forum for the folks there have funny ideas as to proper care of fish,, but I did happen across your thread where you were speculating as to water being the cause of your fish losses with respect to bettas. Would seem all fish would suffer if water quality or content was an issue not just the bettas. For what it is worth,, I would submit that it is possible that given the often horrific conditions that these fish are kept in at nearly all fish stores,, that a possible viral infection was transmitted to one of your tanks and if infected fish shared water in several tanks,, is possible that all tanks are affected and a thourough cleaning of all betta containers ,decorations,gravel,nets,etc with bleach solution will be needed to rid the tanks and thus hopefully allow you to keep bettas longer. I might be tempted to throw out any old food that was six months old or older and I might cease with bloodworms and or tubifex worms for a while. I might also try feeding occasional Daphnia ,and pre soaking pellets bfore feeding the fish. please forgive me for straying from your topic and also if you have already utilized all of the suggestions.
