Anyhow, I have a 20 Gal aquarium that is populated by three albino
Cory Cats, and five White Mountain Cloud Minnows. What I'm planning
to do, at some point in the not to distant future, is transfer the
Betta to the aquarium.


Bettas and Cory Cats get along just fine, no problem there.
Can't say anything about the Minnows.

K, thanks. I guess it'll be a bit of an experiment then. I'll make
sure to post what I observe. :-)

It's ~22 C (~72 F) on cool/cold days. This being summer, in a south
facing apartment, even in Canada it's often 27 C (80 F) or better.


72*f is a bit too cold for Bettas and Cories.
If you're water temp usually hangs around 80*f, that's fine.


Well, I had bumped up the temperature on the tank heater to 24 C a
couple of weeks ago. The corys and the minnows seemed to be doing
fine, and the betta didn't seem to have any illnesses. On monday
(09 July) I finally transplanted the betta into his new home.

I'm still keeping an eye on things, but the new tankmates seem to
be getting along quite well. The minnows were initally curious of
the betta, but seem to leave him alone for the most part. Whereas
the betta just seems to be happy lurking around the plastic pants.
It was pretty obvious that the betta probably wasn't used to being
in so much water. :-) The corys never paid the minnows any
attention, and they pay the betta about the same amount.

Truth be told, the betta seems to be more interested in humans and
human activity than in fish and fish activity. I had almost
forgotten how much bettas reminded me of puppies in that respect.
:-)

Oh well, that's all I have to report about my rather mixed-up
community tank at this time. Just though I'd share so it'd be in
the archives. :-)

Thanks again,

Hey Steven!
Sounds like things are going good. = )
Bettas are always interested in what's going on outside their tanks
too.
They become quite tame to their owners and do show their happiness to
you.
That wiggle dance they do isn't always begging for food, hehe.
So do spend some time with your new Betta. People don't often think of
needing to spend time with a fish, but they beg for attention.
Some will even flare in the excitement too.
I just picked up a lovely male Black Crown tail. He's gorgeous.
I also had a round tail male shipped, and he's doing well too.
Found several females at a couple different Petsmarts. They get good
quality from time to time, and they were probably a breeder's culls.
Gorgeous fish.
Just yesterday I couldn't pass up a white and blue marble crown tail
male. I was just going for Bloodworms, I swear! = )~

When I put my hand in the tank to fix something or grab some plant
matter, my Bettas will swim around my hand and brush it. Sometimes I
have to sneak my hand in to do it. Alarmed me the first time. I swear
they want to be petted.

I put three juvenile male guppies in with one of my male bettas about a
week ago. It was funny. They wanted to hide, he wanted to see what
they were. Even now if he can't see one, he will go looking for it. It
was like that too, when I put the algae eater in there a month ago. It
hid under the log - the betta dug under the log to find him. As long as
he could see it, it was ok. When it hid, he went looking for it. Silly
thing.

TYNK, another one! I wish I had room for more. I often have to tell
myself don't look . . . don't look . . . don't look, when I just run in
quick for something.

LOL....
Yes, another one.
There's no use in trying to resist. It's futile.
Pics coming soon.......

As far as I know, the aquarium could be close to capacity, because it is in addition, the beta will I have to do more frequently changing the water. With this in mind, I am now more worry about compatibility. I understand that Tony is home generally gentle with other species of fish, and the Coreys and baishan Yun is very tame themselves.
