Hi Tarek.

It is best that you save your money so you can buy the biggest tank you can afford.:) I'd recommend 15 gallons as the minimum although the larger, the better.:)

Basically what your tank really needs.
Filters, lights, heaters and pump for aeration(unless your filter makes turbulent movements).

Thread moved pending the appearance of the other one in Emergencies.:)

i would recommend rehoming your other fish as the others have stated. when you added all those fish at once it was probably an ammonia/nitrate overload for your bacteria since they were used to dealing with one betta. its a good rule to add one to two fish per week until you have reached your max number of fish for what your tank can hold. unfortunately, being a 10 gallon owner myself, thats not much. =( good luck with the health of your other fish.

I'd just move them straight away and never look back. Your fish will never be happy in a 9 gallons tank.

--Yeah what others suggested -- rehome the fish that are going to be larger than 2 inches as adults :( In a 9 gallon tank you can keep about 3 fish whose adult size will be 3 inches or less. Good luck :)
