Introduction and Question
Hi! I am an English Major at a Midwestern college. I have 6 fish, 2 cats and 2 dogs. Two years ago I adopted my first fish for college, a pink veiltail Betta named Touchstone. It was love at first sight. Since then, I have been interested in fish keeping. I have two established tanks right now, a ten gallon and a five gallon. The five gallon is home to Touchstone. The ten gallon is home to 3 peppered corys, 1 false julii cory, and 1 neon blue mickey mouse platy, named Dalek.
Here is my question. Is it possible for me to add a Betta, male or female, to the ten gallon? I am sick of just having Dalek swimming around, but he is too aggressive towards other platys. He bullied my last two platys to death (I was at away at college when it happened, so I didn't know what was going on until it was too late). He gets along well with the corys, though. I do have a backup tank I could use in case it gets ugly. I just want some advice before I decide to adopt another fish.
