View Full Version : Betta and...

The fish in my signature? I think they will be fine but will the RS be a problem?

Male or female betta? Bettas are iffy, sometimes they get along well with other fish, sometimes they don't. I'm not sure if the RS would be good with the betta or not...

It depends on the temperament of the betta. Have a separate tank set up for your betta just in case.

I'd say flat out no. Even if the betta is the best behaving fish you've ever seen, it's not going to do well with the RS. If you'd like to keep a betta, I'd start a smaller tank just for the betta. That's my two cents.

A female may be worth trying, but I dont it will go well with fish like danios. They are the opposite as far as activity and curiousness, in my experience they pester betta-fish to no end.

The RTS is a terrible tankmate also, fast swimming and somewhat aggressive, you want the opposite type fish for a betta commmunity.

If you are gonna try it, I agree that having another tank ready is a good idea.

No you are already pretty well stocked. Besides that a male will get his fins nipped and your bottom is already taken up by other fish.
