Hey it's okay, I didn't mind! I think I probably agree with smells fishie though that a bottom dweller or a few snails would be best...I really have no clue how the black neons would be with bettas! Good luck and tell me how it goes! Also make sure you check out the compatibility sticky!

Okay, I got my tank set up : )
At the moment Styx (my betta) is in there with 4 Clown Loaches and he's happy just hanging at the top and flaring at his reflection :D
I'm possibly getting 6 neons tomorrow from my lps and I got Styx some bloodworms today

Do you have a larger tank for those clown loaches? THey grow to 1 foot+ size. I would keep four in 60 gallon.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

With the loaches already in there, I would not add any more fish.

If I were you I wouldn't add any more fish, I think that that might be pushing it a little. You might want to see how the loaches work out for a little while.

I've kept black neons with a king betta. The king betta tried to school with him, and the neons clearly thought he was nuts. I felt sorry for him, since he was being rejected from the school. I ended up moving out the black neons because of it.
