i used to have a king betta, he was probably the most relaxed betta we've ever had. he would just cruise around the tank all day and never bother anyone else in the community tank. he was with several assorted livebearers, and they all got along just fine. i'd say that two or three platies would work wonderfully with him in a 10gal, especially if it's live planted.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

Sorry for the delay. :)

King bettas are, I heard, not full fledged giants but half giants.

Well my king is a little aggressive, and a little piggy X3, and while he did settle in with the idea of a snail tank mate when I first put him in with the snail he went and took a bite o'snail. But left him alone after that.

I'm pretty sure he would eat the shrimp, and he might even attack a frog (that is IF I could find one). Peaceful fish I don't know what he'll do but he is quick and a little ruff.

Mabey I'll get a blue mystery snail, or some other snail as they fun to watch and funny to watch magilla swim there just staring in confusion. X3

Also I love the name Bilbo Froggins! XD

Julii cories! They're super cute and I believe they only reach 2.5 inches. I think you'd have to have 3 tho.

Tankmates depend on the tank size.
