Wellll....
Dwarf puffers are iffy.
Sometimes they're sweethearts, sometimes they're little demons.
I suppose 5 to 7 might work in a heavily planted tank, but I'd keep a VERY close eye on them if...

They likely weren't suffering from parasites, though I did consider that. They'd been treated by the lady I got them from.

I did a little experimenting and discovered that even if the food was on...

They need to be in schools or they get aggressive with each other and other fish.
No offense to your aunt, but I'd be a bit concerned for the fish if she doesn't know what her fish are.

I'd definitely go with number 2 and a single male or female betta.
You could also keep the cory, if you wanted. I don't think it would put too much strain on the bio-load, especially in a planted...

I think I can safely say that these guys are not suited for tanks that aren't tiny. I just don't see them at all.
Perhaps a better setup would be a bunch of leaf litter at the bottom and a piece of...

Cories are goofs and pygmy cories are even more so.

I think the reason they're called great schoolers is most other fish make them a bit nervous, since most things are larger than them.
Mine...

They do look a lot like tiny whiptail cats, I suppose, but they definitely aren't. They have pipefish heads, for one, and they're much rounder. Whiptails are kind of flattened if you look at them...

If the tank is heavily planted and well established, crocodile toothpick fish should work. They're sort of reclusive, but they're fascinating to watch as they putter along and search for food. That's...

It doesn't matter how small they are right now. They're going to get bigger, and you need to remember that they will get bigger. Removing them when they grow and replacing them with babies is not a...

The ammonia is bad. You need to get rid of it- water changes should help.
Indian almond leaves should help... They're known to be good for helping fish recover from fin injuries.

That should work fairly well, just keep an eye on your betta. He may decide to eat them. Probably not, but it's a possibility.
Make sure to get at least 3-4 females per male to keep them from being...

Technically they aren't pipefish, they just act like them.
There are freshwater pipefish, one species, in fact.

I just saw another one today, drifting lazily around.

Crocodile toothpick fishies!

I'd suggest you try and get two female gudgeons so they'll get along.
It should be fine with a peaceful betta, gudgeons are very gentle and safe with most fish. They're wonderful community fish,...
