I've had some experience in the past with guppies, glo fish, and platies. I was younger and didn't really know how to take care of them properly so I sold them. Now I have a job at a local family owned and operated pet store and I'm looking into fish again. I get an employee discount of 20% in early January and so I'm waiting until then so I can get that discount, fish can be expensive! I'm thinking of a.... 20 gallon (tall) aquascaped (I need tips on this. I know I want live plants though. But not too crowded) And I want to start with... 3 Cardinal tetras 3 neon tetras 3 cory catfish (which kind though?) My current betta, Steve 5 ghost shrimp (Experimentally) And eventually I want 4 cardinals 4 neons 5 or so corys My betta 10 ghost shrimp And one mystery snail. I plan on having lots of plants, and when I have this many fish I'll also add a second filter. Any other fish stocking ideas? They MUST be able to stay with bettas though, because I'm keeping Steve in it no matter.
