I would really like to add some smaller fish to Bettasaur's tank, but I'm not sure what kind. I really like the look of the tetras.
I have several bettas in their own tanks. I wanted to add one of them to my main community tank, so I tried each one and watched carefully to see how he'd react.
Interestingly, each betta had exactly the same reaction. He looked at most of my fish with apparent casual disinterest. Even my fancy guppies, which I was warned might make the betta crazy, got no reaction. But then when he laid eyes on my glowlight tetra (like a cardinal tetra but with an orange stripe instead of the blue one) the betta went CRAZY hostile and frantically went around trying to scare off all the fish in the tank that he had previously not seemed to care about... so I had to remove him back to his own individual tank as he had failed "plays nicely with others".

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)
Just wanted to update everyone! Everyone is getting along really well! The only time things get a little crazy is at feeding time, but I'm getting the hang of distracting Bettasaurus. He's actually pretty much stopped biting his fins & they're almost completely grown back out now. I forgot how full & beautiful they were! :)
