View Full Version : Betta and a few cory's?

Is this combination possible? I have a ten gallon tank with 2 panda cory's. Was wondering if I could put a betta in with them since the cory's are such peaceful little creatures.

It could work or it may not. A lot depends on the temperment of the betta. As long as you have a backup plan it would be worth trying. I would get a couple more of the pandas as they like to be in groups.

Hello Kaitym,

I have had two different Betta's in with my 5 Panda Cory's (not at the same time) and one of the Panda's is quite small as I have had him since he was an egg. Neither of the Betta's bothered the Panda's although the first Betta I had in the tank did like to chase my Rummy Nose Tetra's, so I moved him to another tank and replaced him with another Betta.

I think it would probably work just keep an eye on him like Rich says.

Rich gave great advice. I just wanted to chime in and say its worked for me in the past.

I have kept many beta in my community tank with corys.The only fish they ever had issues with were my hatchetfish.
