    I went to the fish store and asked for 2 siamese algae eaters, the person there gave me 2 CHINESE algae eaters instead...

Other occupants in the tank are 7 sterbai corydoras and 7 neon tetras, can I keep the Chinese algae eaters forever or even for a few...

    Bettas are mistreated...

If anyone looks up betta tank size it will say 3 gallons. Some websites say 1 gallon is fine, and that's just horrible. Myself has a betta in a 3...
