I don't think we even have petsmarts in England...my favourite fish shop by far in Maidenhead Aquatics, second being the petshop I work in as I can influence the stock and their care :3.

Yeah I thought that's what you meant! I considered panda corys as they are a smaller kind...I had a quick look at the pygmy corys but apparently they are more of a mid feeder than a bottom feeder.

He actually originally had a 7 gallon, but a bat and ball related incident resulted in a rushed, smaller tank as it was the biggest I could afford at the time. Saving up for a better tank but in the...

The borneos aren't based in there, they have come from my 60 gallon to help clean some algae growth. And just the surface agitation? There is loads, that's what's troubling me. All the water tests...

I hand feed my betta two pellets (each pellet is around 1/3 of his eye and they expand a little when they are wet). I'm lucky enough that my lil guy will take food from my fingers.

I would say that they are. A betta's stomach is smaller that his eye - this means over feeding can cause problems, the most common problem being constipation. Do not feed your whole tank for 24 hours...
