King Betta, or female with...

Would a King Betta or a female or even a few females be ok with some Buenos Aries tetras. The tank is 30 gallon and also has some cory cats. There's seven tetras and they won't eat betta food (tried it to make sure).

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

I think I've heard that Buenos Aires tetras were very aggressive. Hopefully, someone else can give you more info about them.

I've also heard that they can be aggressive, I think they also eat plants in aquariums.

Ya I've seen them eat lettuce. These guys just mind their own buisness. They've never made an attempt to attack the catfish.

That's true for every plakat but Kings. Kings have a very shy personality and get a long great with just about everything (so I've heard).

well not all kings...

My king Richard didnt like the neons when I put him in the 20 g h planted tank. Hence the reason that I moved the neons out of there... but he ignores the ottos and seems to pay close attention to the cories.

Girls

TheJewels... 20 g H plantedsorority - 4 princesses & 3 zebra otos
Ladies of Camelot - extended visit of Rome - 7 pretty girls & 7 cories - 20G Long.

Galahad - deltatail (15 gallon divided)
King Richard the Lionheart- king betta (12 g Camelot)
