They are good community fish, but they lurk at the top, so if you have a top dwelling betta you're gonna have little movement all around your tank. Also, watch yourself on the snails, some get huge, and they are poopers! I got one yesterday, and all you can see is little brown turds in my sand! I had to pooper scoop my sand:) But really though, ditch the inch rule, majority of people hate it because it doesn't take into effect alot of variables.
