Here's the tank. It's pretty bland so far.


And here's a pic of the dude in the 40g breeder above the fish tank..

Thank you! That's exactly the kind of page I've been searching for. I've been boggling my own mind just up and down with what fish to get. I want mollies, wait not a good idea because of the fanish tail. DoH!
The white cloud minnows look like a real good option, as do the Guppies.

Guppies be careful because they look like bettas to the betta... put the guppy in a glass and hold the surface above water level and move it towards the betta to see if it will attack it.

Feeder Guppies I may be able to get away with though. I'm also looking at Rosy Reds. They are I think 14 cents a piece at my local fish store.

Thanks! I'm happy to have found an active forum here. I'm now strongly debating switching everything over to the 29g tank.. but I'm a bit afraid that my Penguin 100 won't be able to handle it. I have a Marineland Duetto Mini that I could use to supplement it, it's 55gph so that would put me up to 155gph total. Is that acceptable or no? If it is I think I'm going to make the switch because 29g is 30 inches long vs the 24 inches of the 20 gallon tall. It doesn't seem like much but now that I get to thinking about it, schooling fish would surely appreciate that extra horizontal room and they still get the same height as the 20g tall.

Awesome link Bacon! Thanks for taking over guiding the OP. I was so tired last night! I have soft water, so I know all the tankmates for it as well as other species for it, but hard was a new adventure for me! I was googling like mad trying to just find fish that can live in hard water. Told OP that they would have to have someone else sort out good tankmates for the Betta and which could go together in the other tank. Anyway THANK YOU!

Well I got 5 Zebra Danios today. I took the Betta out of the tank for awhile and let the Zebras acclimate. Then I put the Betta back in. He's flared at them menacingly a few times but he can't get very close to them before they're gone- lol. They are just too fast for him, just like I had thought. Plus Danios are known for being some of the best fish for cycling a tank, and I plan to keep them after the cycle anyway so hopefully this works out.
Under the floro lighting from across the room the line in them glows green just like a tetra! Looks sweet.
