Posted this earlier in the aquarium forum, but got no takers. Really need some help here. Thanks:
Ok, College age daughter bought betta for dorm room. All is great. Brings fish home Thanksgiving, leaves "will take back after Christmas." That does not happen. I have a betta, on our mantle, in a nice size bowl.
Wife not happy.
I have a 1.5 year old, heavily planted 75 gal aquarium. It is working like a champ. Here is my question, Can I add the betta to the aquarium.
Here is what I have in there:
several small shoals of corys
6 cherry barbs that have been there from day one
6 celestial pearl danios
8 pork chop rasboras
4 german rams
2 bosemani rainbows
In a previous setting I put betta in with gouramis...learned that lesson well. The above list does not seem to be bad, but I really need some expert advice.
I hate for "Leland", the betta, to live in that bowl, but at the same time, and moreso, I don't want to mess up my wonderful community.
Thanks so much for any and all replies.
55 Gallon, planted
Cherry Barbs 5
Porkchop Rasboras 7
German Blue Rams 4
Boesemani Rainbow 2
Siamese Algae Eaters 4
3 Lined: 1
I think I am pushing it, but water quality is holding up fine, and all the fishys seem pretty happy.
