i would say yes that you could get some cories or zebra danios ,but watch them carefully. Also in a 14 gallon i would say 4-5 cories and/or 4-5 zebra danios.

The results are in!

Is either better than the other? I just dont want them to fight . I know fancy guppies are out.

I would say a just about 4-5 zebra danios because they need to be in groups and for the cories only about 2-3 of them and yes fancy guppies are out. you could also get a couple neons

I had a king betta and I kept him with some tiger barbs and a peacock freshwater eel for a while. I was worried the barbs would pick on him but there was 4 of them and they just picked on each other and left him alone. My king loved to chase them though :p

Take care of the water,

Cories are very fun. I love the albinos mostly because they have more personality!

Cories all the way! haha. They are some awesome fish! You will need to have atleast 5 as they do a lot better in groups! They eat -->left over<--foods and Algea Waffers. Just remember.. Some Bettas just cant be housed with any other fish...so keep on eye on them. :]

I agree with CTL some bettas are loners from juveniles and would harass the other fish in the tank.

He seems pretty layed back but he hasnt been with other fish either. My other Bettas I can tell, though not been forced into the situation they dont seem like the friendly type. Im still on the fence about the other fish . I just thought it would look so much cooler with a few more in a 14 gal. I dont want to give up my kings happiness just for my visual plearure though. :) I dont wanna cause stress or death to other fish either .
