female betta with corys and rasboras??

I just had thought. Would a female betta be okay with corys and razzies? If i try any of my girls,probably would be Reba. She is the healthiest of my bunch lol. Not sure whats up with my other two. If she doesnt get along I can always put her back in her own tank. Is it possible? How many razzies should I get if I do add her to the tank? I know they are better in multiples. But I dont want to overcrowd the tank. Its a 12 gallon,btw.

3 gallon male betta
10 gallon male betta
12 gallon QT
30 gallon
1 Pl*co, Brochis Splenden,False Julii Cory,Pygmy Corys,Female Betta,Harlequin Rasbora,Tetras
55 gallon Possible Barb tank?!

With all that room, I would say yes. Just keep an eye on her of course. I would either introduce them all at the same time, or introduce your female last, so she's not all territorial at first.

I'm pretty sure it would be fine....

I would have a back up tank for her just in case.

Yeah, it would probably be the best just so your female isn't territorial. But hey, you might be able to get another betta if you're putting Reba in with them lol.
