I always answer comments. I think that more Youtubers should put in more time for that. Gets more personal in my opinion.

I have a female beta in a 40 gallon with mollies and guppies, snails, plecos, shrimp...the usual suspects. I'de like to move one male beta into that tank as I have scud shrimps and pond snails coming as food for my pea puffers. His 10 gallon tank would be great to start them out in, loads of algae. I just haven't gotten brave enough to put him in.

Plenty of cover is the key. With that said, they will still chase and stress each other more then if you would have them alone of course.

One Cyan is clearly stressed out and being bullied. Sure Betta fishes ain't fighting to the death like the myth, but they ain't community fish neither.

If you're not too invested to get top quality betta fishes in tail, fins, scale, color, then sure it's no problem. Having the top end one, I would think people would think twice before trying to prove a non point regarding betta fishes throwing them into the same tank.

As I watched your video I couldn’t help but notice that the white crowntail was hiding all the time. After a week or so and you see the crowntail is still hiding.., you may want to consider removing the fish. It’s not healthy for a fish to live in fear .., nor is it right. I hope in time the crowntail does fit into your beautiful community tank but if not.., then it’s time to remove him. Just be observant and decide what is best for the fish.
Zacks Tanks Crazy Aquarium Guy
Zacks Tanks Crazy Aquarium Guy - 3 years ago
It worked perfectly in that 17 Gallon. But it only worked because the smaller male were to scared to fight. So he would just stay hidden all the time. So I moved the blue one after 14 days.
And I liked the white one more! :-D So what fun is that? If he always stay hidden.
Plus, after a few months when he would have gotten bigger, they may as well have killed each other during the night, all of a sudden. But the Betta Sorority and 1 male worked for a long time. :-)

Hi, last night my betta fish died (sad news). But I had a question, how do you clean these tanks where you have plants planted in the rocks like that, I mean do you take the gravel out etc, or how does it all happen, without the fishes crap and plant debris building up, do you just clean the tank walls and water change only? Thank you in advance.
Zacks Tanks Crazy Aquarium Guy
Zacks Tanks Crazy Aquarium Guy - 3 years ago
I never clean my gravel, I only do waterchanges and the plants take care of the rest. :-) Go to my playlists on my channel. I have a lot of planted aquariums. And I do not ever clean the gravel or sand in any of them. Good Luck Next time.

Yup all you need is enough females to keep the males preoccupied. I had 2 males and 10 females in a community 55 gallon and they never fought. You need to make sure there are enough plants and aqua scaping to break up the line of sights as much as possible.

I’ve also done this and it worked for me for a very long time almost about a year until they both males dies. But I did mate one of the male with a female and I have all the babies living in the same tank with 0 problems. So this is achievable. I have a 60 gallon tank so there is plenty of room for them.

Like you said. It CAN be done. But I would not recommend it to anybody.

Omar Mohammad Al Janaideh It depends on how much, water changes, filtration, food and plants. To hard to answer.

Love the tank. I keep 17 bettas in an 80 gallon tank. I think accumulating the fish slowly and having lots of plants is key. I think they make gorgeous community fish.

Zacks Tanks Crazy Aquarium Guy yeah but mine is not that heavy planted tank but they're still good because one of the male betta is trying to avoid the other male that's why they don't fight. Btw thanks if you watch my video

I love coming across videos like this! Most people think that bettas (especially males) will always kill each other when they are placed in the same tank. It all boils down to their unique personalities. I currently have 1 plakat male with 6 females in a 54 gallon with 6 corydoras, 5 platys, and cardinal tetras. Everybody is getting along even after almost 3 months!

Okay, these fishes are awesome. I have been thinking about getting them myself. :-) But they need really hard water. So tetras in the same tank is going to be hard.

But in Sweden they do not keep Bettas like that. In the stores I mean.
And we have rules about legal tank size for each tropical fish.
