I would NOT put glo fish or neons with your betta. Too much risk.

Glo fish: Genetically modified zebra danios. Very expensive for a little fish too. They are VERY active too. I recommend at least a 20g.

Neons: Nippy little things. Bettas can and do eat them too.

Guppies: big bio load. Bettas will often nip at them.

Otos make great tank mates!!! Except, they must always have algae to eat! They easily starve. Very sensitive.

Considering your situation with having to keep your bettas in small tanks, I HIGHLY recommend you divide the tank in 3-4 sections (if it's a 10g) and take care of your current fish instead of getting more new ones!!!!
haha doggy hog for a minute i thought that these were Otos


haha lol. are these good tank mates too?

also what about these swordtail fish?

how do you tell the difference from male or females?


i found three different looking ones this one:

and this one:

and lastly this one:

The results are in!

You can sex livebearers ( guppies,platys,mollies,swordtails,ect) by looking at their anal fin. If it is a triangle then it is a female if it is stickish its a male.( I dont how else to describe it lol) By the way the third swordtail ( second to last picture) is sick. I have had platies get that weird disease (dont know what it's called) where the belly gets super SUPER thin and the gills nearly or do hang over the sides a little and they die 100% of the time. NEVER buy a fish that looks like that!
By the way im not sure if they are good tankmates but i would recomend a 5-10 gallon tank if you are going to have your betta with them just in case. I have heard that they follow the betta like he's god. LOL

Bottom dwellers make great tank mates with male bettas. For example cory cats and african dwarf frogs.

I have one of my bettas in with a few glass catfish. They get along well and pretty much ignore each other even at feeding time.

Frost: veil tail
Anubis: crown tail

Solar: half moon
Fenrir: crown tail

Otos are great fish. I remember a long time ago when I got my first aquarium in my life, I got otos. They're cute too :) they're a great help with algae and very peaceful.

White Clouds get along well with bettas. They are very peaceful and timid fish, and aren't fin nippers (Unlike goldfish!!!).
