Curious, what fish have you had your betta with?

I'm curious to know what types of fish you've had with your betta.

I had a 10 gallon tank, and all together for the longest time I had two Bleeding Heart Tetras, 1 male guppy (he was tiny), 2 algae eaters, and a crowntail betta. And they all got along, none of them had fights.

Alittle later I had a goldfish, a molly, and a cory catfish added to it, and they fit in fine.

My betta had also been with an angelfish, neon tetras, and a red-tailed shark at one point, this was for a short while. Dearing the time I learned he did NOT like dwarf gouramis, at all.

So, what kinds of fish have you had with bettas?

I guess its all on the betta for certain fish, my corycat and male betta got along, it was like they didn't know each other existed.

My males have all gotten along wonderfully with cories.
Currently, my female is housed with platies, cories, and platy fry. I was relying on her to keep the platy population under control but she doesnt even go after the babies lol.

Well right now I have my betta, Skittles, in a ten gallon tank with zebra danios, cory catfish, and one apple snail with a sword and onion plant.

Metta


The Pali word metta is a multi-significant term meaning loving-kindness, friendliness, goodwill, benevolence, fellowship, amity, concord, inoffensiveness and non-violence. The Pali commentators define metta as the strong wish for the welfare and happiness of others (parahita-parasukha-kamana). http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/a.../wheel365.html

As of two days ago, I have the betta with:

CPD's
Porkchop Rasboras
cherry barbs
bunch of cories

Still watching them close, so far, everything is fine. The tank is heavily planted and everyone is getting along fine, so far.

55 Gallon, planted

Cherry Barbs 5
CPD's 6
Porkchop Rasboras 7
German Blue Rams 4
Boesemani Rainbow 2
Siamese Algae Eaters 4
Cories:
3 Lined: 1
Elegans: 3
Pandas: 4

I think I am pushing it, but water quality is holding up fine, and all the fishys seem pretty happy.
