Thread: Tankmates

    Betta's are very territorial in most cases, and will go after anything, even if it's bigger than them with bright flashy colors.

    Never put bettas with the Gourami family as they are cousins and of the same temperment. I have one betta and three cory cats in my ten gallon tank and they're doing fine. They're in a planted tank.

    It's all about temperment of fish between species. Also keep in mind that a betta gets a maximum of 3 inches. If the fish you're putting it with are bigger and have the same ideas as the betta as far as flashy colors go, the betta may be the one eaten or stressed to death.

    Senior members chip in on this?

    Yeah, the only fish bigger than the betta would be a pleco. i don't think that will cause any problems. I'm done trying to put gouramis in my tanks, because i've bought 3 dwarf gouramis in the past 2 years from 2 different lfs, and all have had ich. Thanks for the quick reply.
    here's a link i found on the web. Is his ideas correct?

    yeah that's a good rule to go by.

    I have 3 julii cory cats in my ten gallon tank with my betta. There's no agression, in fact i think they've been playing a bit.

    It's because the cory's tend to stay on the bottom, as the betta roams top to bottom.

    If i were you i'd do the cory cats, they're fun to watch. I forgot how big your tank is, but keep that in mind. While the rule of 1 inch of mature fish per 1 gallon of water isn't always perfect, it's a good rule of thumb to follow.

    Thank you for your thoughts! Do you like your corys a lot? I want to get a school of peppered or pygmys for my ten gallon, and emerald greens for my 30. How many do you think will best exhibit their personalities?

    Definitely get pygmies for the 10g, so you have more room for a bigger school. 6 or above would be best. 10g is really very small for an aquarium, but pygmies and one betta should be ok. Make sure your filter is rated for 20g or more (ease the flow with a baffle). :)

    I adore my cories. ^.^

    Hmm sounds like my ten gallon aquarium is set. Do you think a pair of German Blue rams could thrive in my 30 gallon with schools of tetras, rasboras, and corys?
