After a nice thorough tank clean, WC, and adding some new bleeding heart tetras and a couple hidden KuhlI Loaches. So happy!!!
That looks so pretty! I just added some fish with my betta....it didn’t go so well so I had to do an emergency rescape of the tank and here’s how it turned out (May not be permanent because it was literally done in 5min but I still like it)!
Sorry about the mess around it

I feel like that's a bit small :p
They are definitely one of my favourites. It's funny I was reading your posts about keeping GouramI today from 2018

Nice and roomy How are they looking? Seeing them in the display tank at my LFS seriously raised them in my books. And has also got me interested in dragon stone.

Answer me this: What is the typical dimensions for a 1.5 gallon tank? :p

I made a post about keeping gouramis? I don't remember.

It would depend on the brand. Still pretty small. The volume is what doesn't cut it for me. Especially for more than 1 fish. But I feel this is another "two bettas No Divider" situation. I refuse to be trolled! :p

How well ya think bolivians and female bettas would play? Thinking of getting some of those baby girl bettas (3 to be exact) and see how they work out

50/50 chance of success 60/40 chance of nipped fins?

Great ime. My rams and bettas never interact with one another. If these are domestic bettas then 3 is a bad number. 5+ is usually recommended. My sorority worked out pretty well, but one of those that remains still had some scarred fins (she was never even nipped very badly).

I found $160 in a coin purse with no ID once and split it with a buddy. I found a man's wallet with ID around the same time and just turned it in to the Police department. I forget how much $ was in it.

I figured since I got baby ones they would grow up around eachother and tolerate eachother

Not necessarily true. It's in their nature to be territorial. They are often raised in large colonies, and after a time they are separated as they begin to become more aggressive. The problem with 3 is that there's a good chance weakest will get bullied to death. Mine all lived together since they were small. They still fought at times.

The actual tank: UNS 16T - 1.5 Gallon Ultra Clear Rimless Aquarium

Forgot to mention something. There is absolutely NO heating or filtration in the sparkler tank.

It's actually not heated and filtered. Tank is actually a UNS 16t.

The sparklers have survived the night and are currently exploring their new surroundings. All four are doing well.

So, about female bettas with my rams, would 6 java loaches, 6 lemon tetras,4 otos, 2 bolivians and 3-5 female bettas work well in a heavily planted 20 long?

That would be pretty heavily stocked. I don't like to go by aqadvisor, but that would put it around 144% stocked. With heavy water changes you can overstock if you would like. But if you set up a domestic sorority, get 5 rather than 3 or 4. Your chances of success will be best that way. And then if you end up with the wrong females you'll need to prepare for if they need to be separated.

Hm... I anticipated that... my Nitrates are usually under 5, hitting ten after a week..

Would a 75% WC weekly be good? I have one amano and I heard they don't like big changes... I do 50% weekly.

My amanos cope well with larger water changes. If you are worried about it you could always do smaller changes twice a week.

How outgoing are your Mystus? My catfish are all couch potatoes with the exception of the whiptail - I have no idea why they aren't more popular. Like skinny BN plecos but much more outgoing.

I wouldn't exactly call them "outgoing" but I see one of them pretty much everyday. Last night the one pictured was swimming about mid column and having a nibble on my female Dwarf Gourami. The other I don't see much at all, the one I do see was really tearing into it last time they were both out. I want to separate them but catching one without destroying the tank will be tricky

They are a really good looking catfish imo. Shame to hear they may need separating. It'd be even more of a shame if you had to mess up the tank! Could be that more could calm them down some?

That's the other option, however finding them might be an issue. All that i've read on them suggests they're social, which was why I picked up all three they had rather than two but one was killed a few weeks in. I'll probably need five plus to keep them peaceful. At £15 a pop :eek:

Ouch. At least they do well alone too, or so I've read. Hopefully the other one is doing okay.

I also moved one of my Snakeskins yesterday, he's in with the Tigers and Cichlids but he seems pretty stressed. I'll probably give him a day or two to settle then move him back. I'm assuming both my Snakeskin are male at this point but i'm still unsure.

In other news. Last time I was at my LFS, I witnessed a BN pleco grabbing an ADF by the head with its mouth and bouncing all over the tank with it. That wasn't pretty to see. I was just about to buy the little guy too. My first time witnessing pleco murder.

So they are harder to sex? Do they both have pointed dorsals? The males should also have some orange on the pelvic apparently. I've been watching Dan's old videos on his, such a beauty. I love how they darken as they age.
