I know this video is a bit old but I have one more tip for you on this subject. If you are going to put a Betta in a community tank be sure that his colors do not attract other fish. I had a red Crown Tail and the other fish in the tank thought his fins were blood worms. It was a bad mistake and not a good out come for the Betta.

Does anyone know if a goldfish would be a good match with a betta? I have my betta, Simon who looks lonely because I'm not there to look after him, I'm considering getting a 99 cent goldfish am I wasting money? Will Simon just kill it? Will it hurt Simon? Please let me know. Thanks.

+Paiges Pets Some people can succeed in doing that but it is not recommend and will put a lot of stress on your fish. This is because Betta are tropical fish that like water in the 78-82F while Goldfish preferred colder water in the 60F. Not only that, but the goldfish you plan on getting with that price doesn't live very long since it is meant to be a feeder fish so yes you will waste money. Even if it did survive common goldfish like that can grow to be very large! you will need 100+ gallon tank. It just a whole new way of caring for fish if youre getting a goldfish. I suggest you do a little more research and try other compatible fishes with betta.

Betta CANNOT live together. Yes, 6 or more females can be in a sorority but that is very unstable and hard to maintain

I don't recommend keeping them other fish. I have a 4 ft aquarium that had a few cories, some neons and a betta, it was fine for a month till the betta showed his dark side on the neons. They're unpredictable and not worth the risk putting them in a community imo

I have to female Betta's living together with no problems at all ;) You can not house a male and female together, cause they will kill each other and of course you can't keep 2 males together cause they'll kill each other for sure. When housing 2 female's together you just gotta make sure you're tank is big enough and has a couple plants for shelter... just in case one starts to be mean. Hope this was helpful.

My only concern is that the loaches and gouramis might be at risk around crabs. RCCs (short for Red Claw Crabs) are opportunistic scavengers, so your crustaceans might harm the loaches due to their proximity (seeing as kuhlii loaches are gravel burrowers) and the gouramis due to them being slower swimmers. RCCs are also best supported in a brackish system. They can tolerate fresh water, but brackish seems to be more beneficial for them to molt and grow. Just a thought. Hope it helps.
Todd Hunt

Do you think a red claw crab could live with large kuhli loaches, catfish, platies, and gouramis etc. freshwater by the way.

Corydoras are fine to live with bettas. Cories are known to be a good bottom fish in community tanks and they don't tend to bother other live critters that share their tank. Other catfish species could be problematic.
Todd Hunt

I wouldn't worry about adding much, except for fancy guppies, other bettas, cichlids, piranhas , or large or aggressive gouramis.
Charlotte Aursand
Charlotte Aursand - 7 years ago
Why would it be any diffrerent than a corydoras? They live on the bottom.. So, if I just had Ancistrus, tetras and a betta.. I saw it worked on another video here on youtube..:/

I don't recommend adding catfish to your betta tank. Thing could get quite aggressive.

Can they live with snails? Or shrimps???
Kayti VT
Kayti VT - 7 years ago
Honestly, I feel it depends. I've had bettas who left shrimp and snails alone... but I've also had ones that pestered such animals often enough (either for curiosity or being territorial) that they stressed the invertebrates and they died.

I have also had bettas that couldn't be kept with mollies, platies or guppies because their fins and body shape/size were too close to that of a betta for them not to become aggressive with the males and occasionally amorous with the females! (I kid you not)

Basically, It really depends on the personality of your betta. I've seen ones who were peaceful and complacent, ones that were fiesty and territorial, and ones who were just too curious for their own good. Just like with any pet, get to know your pet's personality and be ready to make compromises if he doesn't want tankmates.
