After the demise of my two lovely betta boys, I purchased two more tanks and need some stocking advice/suggestions. Here's what I will have once they are set-up: (a) 5g Purple Mini-bow for my two year old daughter with a purple/blue mermaid theme ( purple grave, 3 purple/blue silk plants, sunken plastic treasure and shells and a fibre-optic sparkling mermaid)...don't laugh she will love it! For this I thought of either a male blue/red betta or a female betta or some harlequin rasboras or neon tetras or maybe a betta plus 2-3 rasboras ( but I think this might be overload). I personally want a betta but my daugter loves little flashy fish (b) a 5g tank for me, definitely for one betta. I was wondering whether i could add either some rasboras or peppered cory's to this tank or whether it would be too much. My LFS has two bettas who live in community tanks successfully so I would probably go with one of these bettas. In this tank i have natural coloured gravel, rock caves with buddha statues and silk plants. (c) a 10g for me and hubby. Thinking of using either black or sand-colored gravel, bunch of silk green plants and some driftwood. No idea what fish other than the harelquin rasboras, zebra danios and peppered cories looked nice ( so did the blackskirt tetras and clown loaches but I think these are too big for my tank). I'm also tempted to put a betta in here too...but I think this might me overkill and my first preference in this tank is to open it up to other fish. My choice in fish is somewhat limited. We have a local pet store with lots of variety but the tanks look pretty dirty; my lfs is pretty good, clean tanks and nice guy with good healthier looking fish but not quite as much variety ; or I could go to the nearby city 2 hours away to see what they have. Any advice or suggestions? Thank you!
