Unhappy Neons platies and corys

Ok. So I really think that I can get as many fish in a 5 gallon flual chi aquarium as long as they don't look squished. Can I? If anyone says I can only have 1 betta fish that's junk

It's not exactly junk. If you have a betta you can only have a betta and maybe a snail. Mainly your other options are 3 guppies or 5-6 neon tetras. I would go with the guppies, because neons are incredibly picky about water parameters. They die easily. If you want bottom dwellers you could also get 5 ghost shrimp with the guppies.

I wouldn't do any fish you've suggested. You could do a school of chilli Rasboras, with shrimp. But no neons, platies or Cories. You could do maybe lest killifish

That is seriously immature. People here are trying to help and such foolishness wastes everyone's time. Try to be more considerate.

I agree totally, not all people on here know every thing but there are some that know exactly what they are talking about and the ones who are learning share what they know.

Most people on this site are not rude, they try to help.
The only rude one in the thread is the one who started it.
People will remember the names involved in foolish games and those individuals will likely go with out good advice when it is really needed.
Nobody knows everything but a combination of allot of good people here can really help with a problem and teach things that you don't know.
I learn something new every day on here.
