HonourWest Posted June 15, 2021 Share Posted June 15, 2021 So I've sadly lost both my betta and my cory bronzes. I plan to get my tank cycled properly before another purchase (I've been discussing this saga/tragedy in the "Ongoing fish & tank issues" thread in Diseases) I have a snail, 3 black neon tetras and one orange tetra. The pet store told me it didn't matter if they were different colours/types as they school together anyway. Based on personal observation this isn't true. (I hope to get more orange ones and maybe a couple more black neons to keep everyone in the tank happy.) I do want another betta, but I don't know what to get for bottom/algy feeders. I only have a 30 litre tank (6.5 gallon). I am concerned about overloading the tank but I want a touch more variety than just the tetras and betta. Each time I went to the pet store they recommended the wrong fish. First they gave me bristlenose catfish which they told me wouldn't grow too large and then they recommended the bronze corys which "didn't need to be in schools" (incorrect, based on what the internet tells me) and were the right size. I'm looking for a common, easy-to-care-for fish that will happily live out its life in my small tank and are compatible with betta fish. Does anyone have any recommendations or input they can give?
