    Hey OFL, Sorry to hear about your storm issues.

    Just a quick update, I have finally cleared my water up,

    Its crystal clear again.

    I have noticed some Brown dots appearing on the sides and fronts of the tank, are these bad news?

    Ghost shrimp is a good choice-I don't remember off hand which of the ghost shrimp that can reproduce in a fresh water tank...give me a day or two and I will find out...but you need at least 1 female and 1 male and be aware that not only the Betta eating the shrimpletts but the ghost shrimp themselves will eat them...but having a nice mass of java moss can may have to remind me later to get that information for you...gotta go for now.....

    Aren't white clouds cold water fish that like fast running water?

    How about endlers? 1 male and 2 females.....but truthfully, I wouldn't put more fish in 4-5g with a really is too small IMO......

    Stressed fish are often sick fish and sick fish can cause all the fish in the tank to get sick.....any added fish would be taking a chance.......

    would 3 white clouded mountain minnows be okay they are only very small and they get along with the other bettas they have been in with?

    Okay.....4-5g....IMO-I wouldn't add any fish...but maybe 3 dwarf cory cats...but that could be risky in 4-5g and they really do better in groups of 6 or more
    Maybe 3 otto, once the tank has matured some in about 4-5 months-they would work
    snails, different shrimp like red cherry or the yellows
    Not a lot of swimming room and with limited swimming room come stress and more chances of the Betta catching them even with hiding places and plants...check into kuli loaches-I know they need to be in groups, I have never kept them but they are small and burrow I think....
