Yes, they get 5-6 inches in length. They need to be in groups of 5 or more and a minimum tank of 55 gallons as they’re fast swimmers.

If I put 5 female bettas, 3 guppies, and 4 pygmy corydoras would that be too overcrowded

I have an algae issue too. My tank is mature (5 months) I replaced the filter and had a mini cycle, exacerbated by the ‘snailo’ recipe I feed mystery snails. I took out all the hardscape, thoroughly suctioned deep the gravel, and then considerate water change more than usual, a dose of clear water to get small particles removed by filter, and the algae appears in check. Try this and just be patient

Want to get rid of the green water? Just add lots of daphnia, they will eat it, and your fish will eat the dphnia. keep adding them until the algae laden water turns clear.

We get our plants from H2oplants.com. I have a coupon code for them lwp15. Do you mean the silver fish with the red and black line? If so they're Denison barbs. They get big, need to be in groups of 5 or more and a tank of 55 gallons minimum.

I have a 29 gallon tank I really would like to have a betta but I only have 1 ranm but I would like other types of fish too I have done it before and it worked really well but i was very young and I wan wondering could I have a cumnity tank with 1 betta but i do need new substrate and a light ( the light I had bought was a blue light for the painted fish) I was wondering what type of light would help the plants grow as well as what type substrate I'm alot more used to the average tropical fish rather than bettas I do love having them but I just recently learned the mimim tank size for them and I know know why my bettas didn't live as long as I hoped (they tended to live between 4 months -1 year) i really hope you do answer some of my questions

We use a Deckey led light from Amazon. That works really well for growing live plants. You can use regular gravel to grow plants as long as you use root tabs.

I have a empty 80 gallon tank thats about 5ft long, 1ft wide, and 2 ft tall. I wanted to do a sorority but I was advised against it because a tank being too tall can be a problem. But in this video, it looks like the dimensions are pretty similar, and the fish seem alright. Are there any concerns I should have when staring a big sorority. Also would it be better to bettas first or the other fish first?
SophisticatedSheltie

Lifewithpets Thanks :)!
Lifewithpets

The bettas don't have any issues at all. I'd recommend adding plants near the surface they can rest and hide in though. It would be better to add the other fish before the betta fish. Let them settle then add the bettas.

I'd put her in a small tank on her own, add a heater, some plants and filter. Do very regular water changes to keep the water clean so the fins can heal. Usually after a trauma they're in shock and need to rest.

Would love videos on how to deal with algae! Ever since I added lights to my tank, I have had to deal with it. I've slowed it down by monitoring how long the light is on by keeping it less than 12 hours. But beyond cleaning and scrubbing the tank, and lights, I don't know what I'm doing. Gonna try the diy sponge filters hopefully my next paycheck.
Lifewithpets

I'd definitely reduce the lighting to 7-8 hours a day and see if that makes a difference. All my other tanks do well on that but this one, well that's a whole other story....lol!

Purplesnowball 13 yes algea is very annoying but its a good sign however if its over grown it could be a bad sign they act like indecators if theres too much it could be over feeding or too much light x hope it helps 8-10 hours if its to do with light ..

Algae has compelled me to give up with plants and light. Currently, I only have fake plants and no light, my tank is in a room with no light, and it only sees light when I turn the light on in the room. The fish are very healthy. I love it, my plants are always beautiful and last forever, and best of all, no algae.
Lisa Foster
Lisa Foster - 4 years ago
A couple of otocinclus catfish would help get the algae off the plants themselves. Once it's already there, it often has to be removed before your other attempts to control it can take full effect to prevent more.
Randy Hightower
Randy Hightower - 4 years ago
Are you considering adding any critters for the algae? I was also curious if you put any of your pothos in this tank. It was your video on it that got me to try it in my little 10 gallon. It may help out compete the algae for food. If they're their and I missed them never mind! Good luck with balancing out the tank. All your set ups always look lovely.
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 4 years ago
Thanks! We have some algae eaters in the tank. Adding the pothos is on the list of things to try however I'm worried it would take the nutrients from the plants in the tank as their growth is already not too good. I've a list of different things I'm trying so it's a slow process.

Betta's are just fine with a medium flow, contrary to popular belief.  It takes a bit of time for them to adjust, but once they do they actually really like it.  You'll find they swim more and actually "surf" the stronger flow spots.   Get your tank healthy, your fish will adapt as everything in nature usually does.

Mr. Purple
Mr. Purple - 4 years ago
NeneTanae it's kind of an option, it wouldn't completely restart the tank but it might cause a mini cycle. Nevertheless, if you don't find the root of the problem the algae will just keep coming back.
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 4 years ago
Unfortunately that's not an option, it would restart the whole tank which potentially could be fatal for the fish.
Balloon Kiiwi
Balloon Kiiwi - 4 years ago
The problem with that is that the nitrogen cycle would restart and that is potentially harmful for the fish!

otocinclus catfish or corydora catfish these are a small variety but need atleast 10 gallons or nean tetras and ever white mountain minnows snails are another great tank mate
Soren K
Soren K - 4 years ago
It is possible that your water temp is too low, so the Betta is trying to stay in its' zone in terms of temp. Bettas are tropical fish, the best temp for them is 75F to 81F. As for the Guppies, I have rarely heard of them being good companions with Bettas. They can rival bettas in fin design and could aggravate the Betta in defending its territory and dominance. Even if the fish somehow get along, and only nip once in a blue moon, you must remember, the mere PRESENCE of other colorful and elegant fish can stress your Betta alone. Still, there are success story videos on youtube of people making it work. Either way, check your temp but make sure it is within a range that accommodates all the fish fairly. Best tank mates for your Betta: Most bottom feeders including Plecos and Cory Catfish (Amazing and hardy fish, fun personalities), Neon tetras, Harlequin Rasboras, White Cloud Mountain Minnows, Ghost Shrimp. Another tip is to NOT get fish larger than the Betta, as it will become intimidated and possibly attack it and/or get stressed. The goal is to make your betta feel as though it is top dog, and does not feel there is a need to defend its' territory. Sorry for the long post, hope your tank is doing great!
Elaina DeWitt
Elaina DeWitt - 4 years ago
Daiz4 Dayz Okay :) good luck on your tank!
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 4 years ago
Guppies can be very hit and miss a lot depends on your Betta. Tetras tend to be very nippy unless you have a lot of them so they can fight amongst themselves. Platys harlequin rasbora and corys are a good option.
Daiz4 Dayz
Daiz4 Dayz - 4 years ago
Elaina DeWitt thank you, tho ima hold off on the community tank with a betta, I have guppy and platie fry
Elaina DeWitt
Elaina DeWitt - 4 years ago
Daiz4 Dayz go for some mild tetras, not known for biting fins, such as neon tetras, they go very well with bettas, and don't do guppies as their colorful fins are sometimes mistaken for a betta and they may fight

Hi I have a fluval spec 5 gallon aquarium and, my friend went on holiday and I was watching his halfmoon beta fish.... my tank was cycling and I put the fish in the tank and the flow was way too high for him and I want to get a betta fish but, even on the tanks lowest setting the tanks flow just seemed way too high. I wanted to get a koi betta with a (much) shorter tail than my friends fish. Do you think the tank flow will still be too overpowering for the poor betta? Thanks!!!

How long does your light is turned on ? Too much light can result in algea. 8-10 hours is enough for this kind of planted aquarium. Btw it's really beautiful what you've done !

No, I don't think so. We've figured it out and an update will be coming soon. The tank is so much clearer in just one week!

Do you think the Ick medication could have caused an imbalance in the tank which made a algae bloom occur?

Good luck ! Sometime it's only by trying different things that we find what's the problem ! You're doing it right :)

Thank you. Lights are only on 5-6 hours a day, were testing doing different things to see what makes a change, but its a slow process.

not enough cleaning crew in this size of tank
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 4 years ago
Yes, we were but have backed off using it as it was making the algae worse.

Lifewithpets do you dose ferts to the plants?
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 4 years ago
If you have a balanced tank you shouldn't need a cleaning crew. However I do have a pleco in there and also nerite snails which is a risk as loaches love to eat snails! The lights are on 5-6 hours and no it's not close to the window. I have 3 tanks next to windows and 7 tanks total and none of the others have algae issues. Only this one which is really frustrating!

Lifewithpets I already have 1 adult and about 10 platy fry but they are not that big yet... of couse they will grow. I am keeping my adult one and probably 1 or 2 of the female juveniles. Would the tetras be okay in a group of 4 long term with the bettas if i didnt get any more? i know its suggested to keep them in groups of 6+. What about 4 neons 4/5 bettas and 2 platys.
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 4 years ago
I think that's a little small for all those fish especially with female bettas. If you didn't have the platys in your first option and don't add more neons you may get away with it.
Jack smith
Jack smith - 4 years ago
Lifewithpets Will do when i get them! What do you think about 2/3 platys, 7 neons and 4/5 bettas? 2ft tank 15 gallons i think. I have 4 neons at the moment but i want to get a couple more to give them a bigger school. If not ive thought about 1 betta, 3-4 platys, 4-6 panda corys 7 neons but i think id prefer a sorority rather than one betta. :)

That's why in my opinion freshwater tank is harder to keep, in saltwater if there's algae or cyano we know that it's phosphate, just water change or put gfo reactor, or turn off the lights for 2-3 days. Maybe you try to do big water change and get off as much algae you can and turn off the lights for few days. Or try Bacter Clean F. I am regularly using it in my betta tank and I don't have algae anymore and I set the light higher from my tank and on only for 6 hours. Hope this help. Good luck.

to get rid of algae use less co2 or less flourisher
Pork Ball
Pork Ball - 4 years ago
i would say it could be the light, which is allowing the algae to grow but then that would stop the growth of your plants or your plants aren’t using up the fish waste fast enough because plants and algae use fish waste to grow
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 4 years ago
They'd most likely get eaten in this tank. With algae it is better to figure out what's causing it rather than patch up the problem.

How about Amano shrimp?
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 4 years ago
I have one nerite in there at the moment but it's a risk as loaches eat snails. He's been in a week and so far so good. I may add more if it goes well as I really like nerite snails and have them in all my other tanks.

Do you use that scyther to get rid of any extras, and your a amazing fish youtubers I used your advice to set up my own

The tank has good filtration and the plants use it as fertilizer. Clown loaches and Cory's do not eat other fishes waste.
Pork Ball
Pork Ball - 4 years ago
she uses clown loaches but for a smaller tank or to reduce stress i would say pigmy corydoras and lots of plants
