Killifish

We have a 100 litre tank with at the moment 4 female betta's....soon to be 6 when i add the other 2, but my partner has seen some beautiful killifish & would like some. Our aquarium only sells them in pairs as male & female & i wondered whether they'd be compatible with female betta's????

i'm kinding hoping they are as i seem to have taken over the house with my betta's & i'd like to let him have his own fish which he chooses & likes. LOL!

I don't know much about killfish, if they have vivid colors, and/or long tails, I would say no, because bettas would attack it, also it depends on the female's temperament

My 9 stunning bettas
males8)
my green velitail lync
my multicolored veiltal Akiro
my CT black and blue male Cobalt
my copper DbT Eragon

Females

my blue-greenish with stripes VT female Zelda
my grey/blue flare monster VT juliet



RIP, I'll miss you
sunny, cascadeia, midnite, luna, and runo

Why do my fish keep kicking the bucket?

From what I've found online they can not be kept with aggressive or territorial fish, aka the betta.

I saw a pic of them, and wow, the vivid colors would attract a betta picing a fight, unless you have a VERY timid betta
