Question Bettas with Angel fish?

I went to petco today and purchased a 10 gal tank kit. It came with filter, heater, and some other stuff... While we were there, mydad said that Angel Fish can go with betta fish. I know it depends on the personality and the coloring, but are they able to go together?

RIP Russell
RIP Quicksilver
RIP Dominic

RIP 4 cories, 23 Ghost Shrimp, and a snail

IMO i would say NO because angelfish have A long tail and bettas might tear it up. also some angelfish have long tails like sword tails thats why i would say no.

Bettas wont approve of it.

The results are in!

Not to mention that there is no way a fully grown angel fish wont be able to fit in a 10 gal. They grow to tall.

Angel fish get way too big for a 10 gallon and I think they can be aggressive and would probably nip a betta's fins. Your fish is much better off by himself.

Cory catfish? Freshwater sharks?

He also said they could go with cory catfisk or freshwater mini sharks. Can they?

Thanks for the compliment FM12!

Okay well no no to the Freshwater mini sharks!!! Yes they can be together with a couple of Cory's. So Cory's can be with a betta and the mini SHARKS shouldn't.

Hence the word mini sharks and they are not so mini.

I don't think your dad is an authority on fish compatibility and suitability for certain tank sizes by any means. Cories can be kept with many different types of fish because they are peaceful bottom-feeders. However, red-tailed sharks get quite large (6") and are very aggressive. Minimum tank size would be 55 gallons.

You need to take the time to research each species of fish before you get it. A few minutes of googling will save you a lot of time, money, and hardship. Using a general calculator such as this one: http://aqadvisor.com/ can help you make your final stocking choices so that you don't overload the tank.

You should also research and understand a process called the nitrogen cycle. This is vital to having a successful aquarium. Here is our forum's article on the nitrogen cycle: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=47838
