Most likely a dumb question but i have a tank with an oscar and a plecko, i aslo have another tank with a betta. These fish are most likely not compatible but im just curious to see if i can put them together.

Your oscar will grow over 12 inches long and most likely eat your betta. I highly recommend not putting a betta fish in with a carnivorous predator like a oscar.

No and my reason is the Oscar will attack it, rip it to shreds and kill it. An Oscar will definitely eat the Betta once its big enough.

Plus... Wouldn't a betta look a bit out of place in such a large tank anyways?

Sally, I will always love you. You were my babygirl and the gateway to my bettabug. Thank you.
