BETTA TANK MATES

Betta fish have many myths surrounding them. You may have heard that betta spendins are not compatible with any other fish and therefor should not have tank mates but in my experience i have had huge success keeping bettas in peacful freshwater community fish tanks. Let's separate fact from fiction as we look at the truth surrounding this beautiful aquarium fish.

Can I put fancy guppies with a Betta fish? I have a 10 gallon tank and I wanted to put two fancy guppies with a female Betta

Possibly. Personally I have done it many times and never had an issue. Particularly with a female betta. But I'd want to have it heavily planted and have a back up plan(maybe a divider you could add or somewhere else to put the fish if there's conflict.)

Could I keep a betta in a 2.5 with one Corey or panda cat fish?

Heidi's Fish Tank ok I actually already figured it out but thank you. I have a small snail instead. (If he gets to big I’ll move him to my 55 gallon)

I would not put any other fish in a 2.5 with a betta.

I've had my male veiltail betta in a 10 gallon community tank for over 3 years. He is so peaceful. I have not seen him flare up or chase the other fish, ever. He's been good with the white skirt tetras (who were established in the tank first) and kuhli loaches (who were put in the tank years after him). He was fine with otocinclus, and nerite snails too. He may have eaten my ghost shrimp, though I didn't see who did that.
When I was a kid I had a male betta and a female in separate bowls. I decided to add a dwarf frog to each bowl, and the female attacked the frog viciously the second I put it in there. I had to rescue it. The male didn't care, so he got two frogs. From that experience I assumed females were more aggressive towards others, so it is interesting to find out it is usually the opposite.

I always found Bettas were very happy in my community tanks and larger tanks are easier for sure.

My betta is in a 10 gallon with a snail and two plates and two mollies, and it's not the betta that is aggressive, its the platies that bothers the betta. But they don't do any harm to the betta.

I tried housing my beautiful red betta with some silver mollies. After he herded them around for a few minutes, he get tired and left them alone. Thinking everything was great, I left to go run some errands. When I returned, I found my poor betta stripped of his fins hiding in the driftwood. And the mollies smugly swimming around him.

I have a Betta in a 6 gallon and I don't wanna upset him or risk things cos he seems so happy. It's a live planted tank with rocks and wood...he explores the entire tank from top to bottom every day and it's funny how attached I am already :) He's happy and stress free from what I can see. regular maintenance also.. He's happy. I'm happy. So I think things will stay this way.. I think some people might enjoy the company of one Betta who thrives in a decent sized tank with lots to do.. But I hope to upgrade my tank in the future and explore more :) that's my two cents anyway haha... Love your videos and your channel..subscribed. You deserve more subs... The Fonz (my Betta) says hello :) thank you

+KetaFishie that sounds awesome! How long have they been together? I'd really love shrimp but I've heard they tend to become snacks so I love hearing from folks who have done it successfully.

This was such a good video! Thank you for posting this. And as always you look STUNNING!! Love the new hair and gorgeous color! I've been thinking about a tank mate for our beta. But first need to get a good handle on his care, then move up a little with some friends. ☺️ That beta 101 video was awesome too!

Have you ever kept a betta fish in a community fish tank? If so what was aquarium tank mates were compatible for you?

I had my baby Fawkes R.I.P. in a regular 20 gallon community with 5 corydoras, a bunch of snails, and about 7 guppies. I currently have my baby Nico in a regular 20 gallon tank with 2 guppies and a bunch of baby mystery snails and 1 nerite snail. I've had a lot of success with snails in the past with my bettas who were in tanks 10 gallons and below.

Hi. I've kept betta in community tank with ember tetras. Currently have my female with neon tetras and one African dwarf frog. And I agree, as far a community tanks go, nothing less than ten gallons.
