My king needs a pal

Ever since mr. peebles the snail died I just feel my king betta magilla needs a new pal. At first I though mabey a dwarf crayfish but then I read about their agressiveness, and then I found a strange creature called a aegla sp. argentina but after reading up it requires water too cold for a betta.

So it seems I'll be getting a snail unless yall know of any other king betta friendly creature that live in his ten gallon kingdom?

Dwarf cories, ADF, apple snail, or just plant it some smalle shrimp might work.

King betta, are those the huge ones they sell at Petco?

If so I always wondered what was different about them, are they just giant bettas?

I saw a few King's at my Petco earlier and just believe they're larger and more 'tough' looking betta's , I don't really see the difference.

Pretty cool in my opinion, if I ever get a new tank that will probably be what is in it.


Sorry being really off topic, but chocolatebetta did answer the question.

My betta really loves his two platy friends. They're gentle and I catch them playing all the time. He'll chase them, then they'll turn around and chase him back. They've been together for about a month now and there have been no nipped fins or other signs of aggression.

ADF's make great tank pals for betta but remember to handfeed your ADF or remove them into a smaller tank to feed them so the betta does not eat all it's food. ADF's are so cool though, I LOVE my little boy Bilbo Froggins and can't wait for my 10 gallon tank so I can get my female two ADF friends as well. (PS Blonde ADF's are GORGEOUS fyi. look them up, they truly are.)

why don't you get another snail since you already know how he is with a snail. Or did you want something different? Shrimps would work he may eat them but ghost shrimps are cheap and it is a really good snack lol
