The community fish you have selected is just fine (except the Bala sharks, I'm not as sure about them fitting with all of the other fish you chose.) You do NOT need a 340 gallon tank for that small amount of fish you chose, the rule of thumb is 1 gallon of water per 1 inch (size of fish)...the "minimum ___ Gallons" for a fish is that you don't put them in a tank any smaller than that, not that they need that many gallons for ONLY that one fish. Your best chances of getting good answers is to ask a knowledgeable person at the location where you are purchasing your fish. Good Luck with your tank.

Expertise

I can answer question regarding, raising, breeding, feeding and the general upkeep of Betta fish. I can answer general questions about isolating a disease and the treatment needed to help your Betta. I am knowledgeable in fresh water tanks and can answer any question regarding them. I cannot answer questions about salt water tanks.

Experience

I have had fresh water aquariums for most of my life, including the 23 years I served in the Marine Corps. I have been raising Betta's for some time now, and have ventured into breeding a few years back. I currently own 5 males and 4 females and I have about 200 almost 3 week old fry. I make my own filters and I have tried almost all the food on the market for fry and I know what has worked for me and what has not worked.

Education/Credentials
I do not have Betta related educational credentials, but I have educated myself in Betta care. I have read quite a few books and articles from both the internet and ones that I have purchased. I consider myself well educated in Betta care.
