    hello! i have a 24 gal. aqarium with a pagoda snail, a mexican dwarf crayfish and a twin tail halfmoon betta male (i think thats his breed) he is a pretty docile betta i have never seen him flare and he has been around male guppys before. i have been thinking about doing a betta Community tank with him and i have been looking at indian dwarf puffers for him and ive heard people say that you absolutely canot keep them together and some people say its a great idea. i love puffers but i definitely dont want him to get hurt. i have also been looking at delta guppys, german blue rams, and a khuli loach. thank you for all the help!

    hello! i have a 24 gal. aqarium with a pagoda snail, a mexican dwarf crayfish, and one twin tail half moon betta (i think thats his breed) and as far as bettas go he is very docile. i have never seen him flare and he has been around male guppys before with no aggression that i saw. so i have been thinking of doing a betta community with him. and i have been looking at indian dwarf puffers. i have heard people say you can absolutely never ever keep them together and some of them say its fine and a great idea. i love puffers but i dont want him hurt. thank you for all the help! also do you think it would be okay to put a blue german ram in there too? thank you!

    Dwarf puffers really need a species only aquarium and are extremely aggressive. They've been known to kill fish much larger than themselves, would not reccomend it. I wouldn't put a betta with a cichlid either, to many things can go wrong. I'd be careful of your crayfish and make sure he doesn't start to go after your betta.:)

    No, I believe all puffers need a species only tank. No problem, glad I could help!

    Sometimes other fish work with bettas, MANY times they don't...I definitely would not try the puffers

    I'm more concerned about the cray getting ahold of the betta....

    I have combined your two threads, since they are basically duplicates

    He may be small now, but he will grow, and will be faster than the betta...like you say, keep an eye on it, but generally speaking, crays and fish aren't a good mix
