A 2.5 is too small for any other fish.

I know several people on this website who had multiple bettas improperly situated and about a year after first being placed together, they killed each other. Even though we warned them, they ignored us and the fish are the ones that suffered. :(

Fact is, it is good for a betta to flare but if they flare to big some can get a tear in their fin which is NOT fatal. Those tears can fix in a matter of a couple of days no problem. Usually that happens with Veils. It's good to excercise a semi-agressive or agressive fish because they naturaly need to intimidate. It's genetically part of them. They see another fish in a mirror and they have a flare off for a few minutes. You take the mirror away and they win! Lol. They swim away thinking they scared off the "intruder"
+1 this is what I do with my DT...his tank is up against my dresser mirror, and normally covered with a background..but, a couple times a day I remove the background and let him confront the "other fish" and scare him away. I think he has been much happier since I've started doing this!
