Bettas and Angels

I am new to the aquarium scene and love these two fish. Are they compatable?

From what I've read, Angel fish are very territorial and need at least 30g tank. I do not think these two would be a good match as both are territorial fish. They certainly are beautiful though. :)

Betta Fish:Salsa,
Duck
, Blueberry, El Chapo, Trotsky,Lemon
Siberian Huskies: Kapu & Lakota

... and a tank with 7 Zebra Danios

I don't think bettas can get along too good with angels. Arent Angels saltwater fish and not only territorial but super aggressive?

There are no coincidences in this world...Only the inevitable.....

One of the smartest things my favorite employee at my LPS said to me was...

"If anyone tells you they know 100% something about fish, take it with a grain of salt. Every fish is different."

Perhaps some bettas can do it, some can't. Depends on their personality. :D

There are salt and freshwater angels. I personally don't think they should be put in the same tank because they are unlikely to live peacefully, however my mom had a 55g with a male VT and tetras and angels and silver dollars for years. She also kept a goldfish in the same tank (usually the betta and goldfish fins were abused...) She also had a firemouth cichlid that had to be rehomed LOL So just because someone does it and the fish lives doesn't mean its a good idea for you personally :)

Angels do need larger tanks than bettas, too.

└(>ω<。)┐-=≡ィヤぁ!└(♥ ε ♥ 。)┐
My bettas:
55 gal sorority with 10 females
Warren Betta-Blue/Violet VT
Mr T.-Red/violet CT
Green/Orange Dal HMDT
Iri-Orange/Green/Black HMDT
Turquoise Marble BFHM
White/Red Marble Delta
Godzilla-Green Marble HM
and 7! more coming from Thailand! <3

Angels need at least 30 gallons, and I hear that with bettas, can be very nippy on both ends. I personally wouldn't do it.

1 Male ~ 5 Females
3 Bronze Cories
1 Hamster
Soon, 1 cornsnake!

i've always heard angels aren't angels at all, and will rip bettas fins to shreds. but, as it's been said, every fish is different. i'd never give it a shot myself, but i do have a friend who had a female living with some cichlids(including angels at one point), so you never know.

My opinion on the matter is:

If in doubt, don't.
