TrogdorTheBettanator Posted March 10 Share Posted March 10 Good day all :) I've recently got into aquarium/fish keeping. After a lot of research and countless videos (which led me to ACO) I took the plunge and got a 20 gallon aquarium. I knew I was going to keep it planted, as I already have lots of houseplants and I love greenery. So I bought the tank, filled it with plants, and let it establish itself for about a month (had some technical difficulties with the water parameters halfway through but got it quickly sorted) before stocking it. Enter Trogdor the Bettanator and the Peasants! I purchased 10 black neon tetras, 4 panda corys, 2 baby mystery snails (plus mini rams horn snails from the plants), and a bright red male betta as the centerpiece of the tank that my husband and I named Trogdor. Anyone know where that name comes from? :D They've all been living together for a week now. Trogdor has gotten a bit sassy with the tetras around feeding time now that he's gotten used to the tank. But 95% of the time they all swim around happily together. I have always loved betta fish so I'm really happy that the community tank is working so far. Please excuse the low waterline, tomorrow is tank maintenance day :) I'm not sure if I'll post much, but I've found some very helpful information from other posters. So, thank you to everyone who shares their knowledge with noobs like me! 6 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
