I have a male CT with 6 glofish (2 of each color) and my beta doesn't even notice them. I also have a couple cory's and three mollies, one dalmatian, one silver and one black. Occasionally my beta will flare or chase the silver and black mollies, but there isn't any nipping, they just go to the other side of the tank.

This is kind of off topic but... How are those glofish coming along with the betta fish?? are heard that since they are related to danios they are fin nippers and will nip on the betta's fins! is this true? have you had any experience of your glofish doing this to your betta?

So far, they haven't shown any agression towards each other, I just got the green ones the other day, as for the others, I've had them for a while, they will swim with each other, but even with six glofish they don't gang up on the beta. I am still watching, but I say they get along just as well as my albino cory's

I would wait until it gets treated, from what I've read, I would do the following-

Raise water temperature
Dim lights for several days
Add aquarium salt
Discontinue carbon filtration during treatment
Treat with copper sulphate for ten days

Hope your fish gets better, Dracos(my male CT) is in my Avatar, he's the one living with my glofish

To be honest I'm not entirely sure, I haven't had a beta with velvet.

You could probably clean it really well, letting all of the water out. Just make sure if you use any cleaning supplies you wash them out really well too. I would use really hot water, since the higher temperature seems to kill/weaken the parasite.

Wish I could help more...

Glofish are really cool and easy to take care of, I would definitely recommend for a first time fish. They are amazing with a blacklight. If you have the option of getting a ten gallon, I would :)

You'd have to get at least 4 cories, not just one, for it's a schooling fish.
So a single cory would be well out of it's element.
but once cured, you could get four.
If you have at least a ten gallon.
good luckk!!
