If you put a male with females, proceed with caution. Keep an eye on them and separate them if there is fighting and provide them with plenty of hiding spots. . While some people have had some success with it, all males and females living in perfect harmony is not the norm.

Yeah I've heard that. I think when I go to buy stuff for my 10 gal, I'm gonna get a divider just in case so if fighting occurs I can put that in and not have to worry.

Having a divider on hand is a good idea. Personally, I like for my bettas to live alone but to each his own. :) Good luck.

Good idea, Im sure I could let my female live with my one male, I tried breeding them and he didnt even care she was in the tank, but I think hes "not all there".

Edit: Im not going to though.

I'd go with the cories. They need a group of 4-6 to be happy, though.

I know what you mean, so many choices. I could have my one female the neons and some cories, orthe sorority, or one female and more neons, maybe even my female, neons, and some inverts, or just scrap that and get one Aquabid male.

I figure no matter what I get Im stuck with for a while so I wanna make the right choice.
