1. Do they need a filter?
2. What is the minimum tank size for 2 of them?
3. Can a plecostomus go in with them?
4. How big will they get?
5. Do they need a heater?

PLEASE any suggestions or tips would be great!
i have a 55 gallon tank and one large goldfish. about 6 inches. i have a filter but i do know i need to get a better one. i can change the water and with in two days i have algae growing on the sides. i was going to get an algae eater but i have been told that my fish would eat it because hes so big.i did get two a few weeks ago but for some reason they both died with in 48 hours of putting them into the tank. it also only seems to grow on the side i have the lights on. are there special lights i can get to help decrease the algae? i do have some stuff i out into the tank when i clean it that's supposed to reduce waist and algae but it doesn't seem to work.
I filled Poland springs bottles and vitamin water bottles with colorful rocks and put them in my 30g brackish water tank and 10g freshwatert tank. Are these plastics safe in there or will they slowly leak harmful chemicals into my tank water...?
I have recently bought a male betta. I am starting to feel awful because he is in a tank by himself and i only bought him a 1/2 gallon tank. is that way to small for him? and if its too small why would the company sell it. that would be just dumb since they are made especially for bettas.
I read something about Betta's flaring, and I don't have a clue what it is. I just got Hibari yesterday and I don't know if it's flared yet or not.
P.S. Is there anyway to tell the gender of the Betta?
