I've had betta fish for a while now. "Stupid Fish" was my first. He was an incredible, intelligent fish that I had for maybe 3-4 years. His name came from the fact that he just wouldn't eat the first couple weeks. He won me over to fish and I still miss that manipulative little fish. I now have a female ~2 year old Betta named Mori in a 2 gal
The reason I joined is a friend just gave me a used 47 gal
corner tank. I'm hoping to turn it into a tropical fresh water community tank with 3-4 species. It has an on-the-back topfin filter for a 55gal tank and a heater. I've filled it with water, seeded it with the betta's fish water. Its been cycled (no NH3
) for a few days now and the betta is giving it a trial run. 47 gal
I'm thinking Julii Cory's, Boeseman's Rainbowfish and plattys. The Boeseman get big is a corner tank long enough for them to swim?
Another option is rather then the Rainbowfish, some danios and odessa barbs. It looks like there might be a temperature conflict with the Cory's/plattys by a degree. Would this still be do-able or any better recommendations?
