15 gal Betta Community tank.

So I am revamping an old black water tank into a betta Community tank.

It's a 15gal set up with sponge/bio filter, driftwood, sand, rock, and lightly planted.

It has two small vines that I have clipped to the top. Just added some small Java Fern and will be getting something like frogbit to float.

Here is a few pics.

It is populated right now with a few ramshorn snails and one betta splendens "dragon scale" male.

Their is some debris from older decayed leaves. I will also be adding some new almond leaves to tint the water again.

For the community part. I'm thinking of either a Glowlight tetras or pygmy corydoras.

What is the community's thoughts on this setup?

Thanks. The species I'm considering are all compatible on that chart.

So I'm thinking about going with the dwarf danio species with the celestial pearl danios.May throw a few shrimp in there just to see what happens but most likely they will just be food for the beta to hunt lol.

Sounds like a good choice and you may be right about the shrimp...
