it is considered that a betta maybe mixed with fish if the tank is 20 gallsons are larger with plenty of plants or hiding space. if your tank is smaller and you notice your betta is puffing up its gills or following yoru fish around it may look like "getting along" but really he is harassing your fish.

Male bettas are relatively tolerant of other fish until it comes to members of their own and their own sex. If you are intending to breed bettas, I would suggest getting 2-3 females per male. The male will continuously harass a single female if he is ready to breed and she is not. He may even drive her to the point of killing her. Not good.

I would add floating plants such as elodea to the tank. This will provide cover for the females until they are receptive and help to anchor the bubble nest.
