Silver Mollies + Betta = ??

Would Silver Mollies be a good companion for a Betta in a 10 gal? If so, how many should I get? Thanks!

ETA - If I can't find silver's around here, I'm going to get Dalmation's. It would be the same for either, right?

As far as I hear, bad idea. Mollies are aggressive. I tried to put a goldfish with a group of female mollies once (on suggestion of pet store) and they killed it in ONE NIGHT.

Also, your avatar's pretty. C:

BETTAS:
Robert Falcon Scott - Red salamander HM plakat
Passed on- Friedrich "Freedy"

OTHER CRITTERS:
Four African Dwarf Frogs - Dorkus, Sporkus, Baron(ess), and Bubbles!

Aww =( I really like the way Molly's look. Oh well, back to the drawing board LOL.

Thank you, I needed something to put up there until I get my Betta fish.

Mollies, have really cute dispositions, too, I wish I could keep some. :C

Betta Fish Bob has a thread right near this one on some possible tank companions that you may find useful.

I've heard that mollies are generally calm fish. I also read somewhere that mollies should not be kept with gold fish, the reason being that they love the taste of a goldfish's slime coat? Not sure about why they eat goldfish slime and not other fishs' coats. I have mollies in a community tank with tetras and danios and they have never acted agressive. I would be more worried about the betta being agressive towards a mollie than vice-versa.

White clouds are very peaceful community fish. Neons are okay too. Some people have problems with them and bettas, while others don't. It mostly depends on your betta. I like Black Neons, myself.


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2
