Which fish species can go with a male betta in a 26 gallon tank?
Hello there everyone. I am new to this forum, but not to betta fish. I've only ever kept one betta of either gender per tank, so I'm not certain which other fish can get along with a betta.
I am basically just making plans now. I would like to get a 26 gallon tank kit from Marineland (with the BioWheel, 3 stage filtration, etc). So, that pretty much leaves me with 22-23 inches of fish space left, right? Since bettas reach a max of about 3 inches long?
I also don't plan on stocking it to the max, either.
Anyways, I know that the tankmates can't be fin nibblers, and can't be faster moving than the betta (or else the betta wouldn't get enough food, right?). They also need to be "rated" as peaceful temperament, correct?
I had some people on another forum suggest tetras, maybe guppies (depending on the species of guppy is what they said), and they might've said something about mollies too...
Anyways, any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks in advance.
