    Default My girlfriends Betta...

    Well about a month ago I managed to talk my girlfriend into letting me take her poor betta out his small prison bowl and put him into my old Eclipse 3 gallon. Well he liked it and all went well.
    I got to thinking about adding a Bristlenose pleco (since she absolutely loves mine) to the tank and figured the 3 gallon is just too small for them both. So for her birthday next week I'm thinking of getting her a 10 gallon set up and a young Albino BN like mine. I figure if he gets bigger I can put him in one of my tanks (I have 2 or so 10-15 gallon setups coming soon for all my fry that I have to save... kids and g/f think they're cute so I don't get sleep that night if I'm not saving some before they become Angel food...)
    Anyway... He's been king of the tank but is pretty mellow. He's a wicked slob and pig though and the bottom of the tank is always a mess (a bit of the g/f over feeding I think helps that out some...shhhh...) She doesn't want snails or shrimp (thinks they're "icky"...lol) and I don't think a 10 gallon is enough for a few coricats. (she's not big on those either... like the BNs more) He son has frogs already so those are out too. She's had enough of frogs... so I guess my question is would a BN be ok with a betta? I'm planning on a couple decorations/caves that he could hide in as well.

    Any thoughts?
    Thanks all!

    The BN would be fine with the betta, they probably won't even acknowlage eachother. As for the guppys, if I'm not mistaken the males tend to be a bit fin nippish, but you could try anyways. With guppys if you want babies get one male for every three females.

    I have heard that guppys don't make good tankmates for bettas. The betta may tend to see a brightly coloured/longfinned guppy as competition and become aggressive towards it!
