Betta w/CPDs and Rasboras

I have a 55 gal that is heavily planted. My fish have been through water quality hell, but water is now, finally, great. My nine centerpiece fish have all perished, sequrentially, while the supporting casts have tough. I would like a Betta to provide highly visible speciman. Would the Berta pose problems for the tiny CPDs and their Porkchop Rasbora tankmates. Oh, the gourami that might still be in my signature is no more. Thanks for info in advance.


55 Gallon, planted

Cherry Barbs 5
CPD's 6
Porkchop Rasboras 7
German Blue Rams 4
Boesemani Rainbow 2
Siamese Algae Eaters 4
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.

If CPD are a kind of relatively short-finned danios, then they should be fine in theory. How tiny are they? It also depends on the particular Betta. Some couldn't care less about who else is in their tank and some will not tolerate any tank mates. You've got the deck stacked in your favor with the large, heavily planted tank. If you're willing to keep the Betta in a separate tank if he doesn't do well in your showpiece tank, then I say go for it. It's a bit of a gamble if you don't already know your fish's personality.
