Your tank is to small for that many fish as some one else said. You could go with 5 Neon Tetra they are small and look very pretty when in a group and be ok I think but you will need a heater if you live in a cold or cool area.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

I have a 55 gallon, 40 gallon, 29 gallon, 20 gallon tank, 5 gallon , and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

no, ottos need groups of three and need an established aquarium with plants and lots of algae.
Tetras need to be in bigger groups and need a heater.
Betta needs a heater as well.

I will say it again, two bettas for your aquarium would be fine, with a divider of course.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
