View Full Version : What can live with my betta?

I currently have a 4 year old betta "Pug". He's living in a 10 gallon tank and i'm just wondering what else I could add that he won't eat? I kind of want african dwarf frogs but i'm wondering what kind of fish he could live with? Thanks =]

Cories are a possibility. It depends on the personality of the betta. Shrimps like ghost shrimp are also possibilities, though that also depends on the betta. Some bettas accept tankmates well, others turn around and attack whatever goes in the tank with them.

Cories and bettas are great together, but a 10g is a little too small for a school of cories. Typically when finding fish to go with a betta you have to consider the other fish's nipping behavior more than the betta's. Anything with flowy fins, gouramis or whatever might might look like a betta is a no-no, as are fish that are finvnippers, like tiger barbs. Smaller, more peaceful tetras are good. I keep mine in a 10g with a school of ember tetras and some lophiobagrus cats.

You could try neons or cherry barbs.
