I haven't posted in awhile, but I have been watching the forums and keeping up, so I hope that you have all been doing well and your tanks are looking extra spiffy these days!
Anyway, I have been watching my little guy (I named him "Buddy" btw), and he looks lonely. This may just be my sillyness, but I would really like him to have some other friends in the tank. For those of you who have forgotten, I have a 5g, non-planted tank with my male crowntail as the only occupant.So my question is this, do you have any suggestions of something else I can add to my tank that my Betta will most likely tolerate and won't bite him also?
Would he tolerate a female betta also? Or should I go with something smaller like some neon tetras? Here is some key points:
(1) My tank is in my office so I dont do any feeding on Sat or Sun. My Betta does fine like this because I always feed him on Friday afternoon before I leave, and then again 1st thing on Monday morning.
(2) My filter is a "Whisper" cartridge filter, meaning that it is not the best, but overall it does an ok job, and I dont want to add allot more to the bioload as I worry that it won't be able to keep up.
(3) Finally, I normally do around a 50% water change once a month currently as this tank has allot of evaporation and I have to add aroun 1 1/2 liters of water every 2-3 days. I do water tests each week and so far my Ammonia stays at 0 ppm, Nitrites at 0 PPM and Nitrates in between around 10ppm. (Yes my tank is cycled) Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
