Windhavyn Posted December 14, 2021 Share Posted December 14, 2021 Hello there! I wonder if anyone here would be willing to give some guidance/help with my tropical tank. I’ve been keeping fish for about 4 years now but still feel a bit uncertain if I’m on the right track. I’d like to check first before I make a huge mistake. This is my first attempt at a community tank. My set up is as follows: a 60 litre Star Fire tank (about 15 gallons) with a 15watt light and an internal corner filter. I am using pool filter sand as a substrate and have live plants. Plants include Anubius, Java Ferns, Frogbit, Water Sprite (planted and floating), Water Wisteria and some crypts. Heater is set at 24 degrees centigrade. Current livestock include: a trio of Honey Gouramis, 11 Neon Tetras, 9 Pygmy Corydoras and 1 Hillstream Loach. So far everything is going well. All my plants are growing, my water tests are spot on (Ammonia is at 0, Nitrites at 0, and Nitrates are <20), and all the fish are eating well and enjoying life. My question is this: would I be able to add a single Betta to this tank? I don’t mind if it is a male (which I’ve had before) or a female. I also have no particular preference for fin style, though I do not particularly like the overly larged finned male Bettas as I find they tear their fins way too easily. Should I try ot out (with a backup tank ready, just in case), or should I leave everything as it is? Any help/advice would be much appreciated!
