Finding little info on compatibility.
Ive got a 56 gallon (30x18x24) heavily planted tank. Very high lighting (Metal Halide 175w), pressurized c02, swift upper level water movement, consistent PH of nearly 7.0, no measurable ammonia or nitrite, but usually a measurable level of nitrogen, potassium, phosphates, and trace metals for the plants. I dose Flourish NPK, trace, and comprehensive about every 3 days. Do a 20% water change every week, and have loads of small occupants. They are as follows, 16 neon tetras, 10-15 ghost shrimp, 5 otos, 4 platties, 3 saes, 1 rubberlip pleco, and an undetermined amount of platty fry that will either be food or find a new home soon. So my question is, other than the fry which im not really worried about, will a betta male be a safe additon to the tank? Ive seen them in local fish stores as a nice additon of color splash for a planted tank but as we all know, they are in the buisness of making money. Solid idea or no? I dont want to lose or stress any of the happy inhabitants I already have. Thanks for the help, and please no 'NOTHING WITH UR BETTA' posts, Im looking for a little more thought or expertise.
