im curious. it was suggested that bettas should be kept with 5 or so tetras? i used to have a betta in a tank with loads of other fish (it was a BIG tank), including guppies, and he didnt bother any of them except the tetras (neons) which he ate, RIP. maybe mine was just an exception, i dont know, but thought i should warn you anyway.

I have a 75g that is full of fancy guppies, platies, 5 red neons, shrimp red and ghost, corry cats, tatoes (algea eaters) can't think of real name but algea sharks, and always baby fish all the time. My dark blue beta gets along with all the fish so far. I just put in three betta females about seven hours ago. So be keeping a close eye on them well I guess today since it's past midnight. But what I seen so far it looked liked he was flirting or showing off for the females. More look at me not what are doing in my tank and looking aggressive and attacking.

NUNSTER, please don't revive dead and rotting threads without good reason. You could post this on a different thread.
