    My fifteen gallon has been up for a couple months, and the plants are starting to fill out. http://imgur.com/asKRVJF

    Now I'm wondering if I should add some more fish. I was thinking a school of ember tetras would be fun. I've got the betta, a Cory cat, a couple snails and three ghost shrimp.

    Thought? thanks

    Ember tetras are lovely fish especially in a planted tank, keep an eye on your Betta though they can change their minds about having tankmates & turn on them. You could also do with getting some more of whatever cory you have as they're a shoaling fish & should be kept in groups of 6+

    I agree with Coradee, work on finishing the cory shoal first and then go from there. :)

    What would you say is the minimum number on the cats? If its really six, then I'm thinking moving the dude to another tank would be better. BTW it's a peppered cc.

    I'd have to say 6 of the same kind is the minimum number for corys, what cory do you have?

    Peppered won't like the Betta temperature they need much cooler temps.
    If your other tank is cooler no more than 24c, lower preferably then get 5 more peppered, if it's a higher temp then I suggest you rehome the peppered & get a different species of cory

    If I rehomed the peppered cory, I don't think I'd start over getting more corys. 6 corys and a betta in 15 gallons seems a bit crowded, doesn't it?

    What are the dimensions of the tank?

    If you didn't have the Betta then I'd suggest panda corys or pygmys for your tank but they don't like high temps so I think corys are a no can do unfortunately
