Question Baby Betta with Red Tail Rasboras?

I just got a 20 gallon tank, and have 3 red tail rasboras. I also got a baby betta from petco recently, and have him in a little one gallon tank. my question is: can i put him in the 20 gallon with the 3 red tail rasboras?? Or will they eat him?! He is only about an inch long.

depends on the size of the rasboras, if it betta fits in their mouth yeah, they'll eat him but if he's bigger than their mouths you're fine. If you decide to put him in just watch them, initially for about 30 mins and then just a daily check should be fine to see how things are going. If after a week of no troubles then you should be in the clear and enjoy your tank ;)

I'd seperate him from them for now. Also, you need to add 3-6 more rasboras for a school.
