A bottom feeder is not necessary. Just gravel vac when you do water changes. If you want to try ghost shrimp then make sure you've got some thick plants for the shrimp to hide in.

Also Bettas need quiet water. Make sure filter has adjustable flow and you may need to reduce or stop the bubbles.

They may be intimidated by the Blue Gouramis. Gouramis often fight. Bullying can be very subtle. Are there plenty of floating and tall plants to break up sight lines ?

Land of the Dwarfs

Lovely tank. 4.5 liters is only 1.18g. With hardscape I'd say less than 1g ?

So tell me about Mollies (or whatever these are)

Please do not release fish that have been in captivity ! I don't believe it is legal or ethical.
