I read online you could have a max. of 8 fish in a ten gallon. So if bettas arent schooling fish(of course males would kill each other, and mines a male I believe), could I just get a bunch of like mini common fish (like 5) and put them in a ten gallon tank? And put my betta in there also?

That was my thought... maybe if you got a half dozen neon tetras you could get away with it. But I am not knowledgeable enough to know for sure.

Betta:
Males - Alpha(CT), Unnamed Dragon(HMPK)
Females - Red, Green, Teal, Blue, Pina, Helena

Dragons:
Xerxes

Yeah, as said, you are going to pick up a 10g to put those fish in, right? Also, in the 10g, while the tank cycles, you will need to do about 50% water change a week to prevent the ammonia levels from getting toxic to your fish. It's best to wait a month or so with just the betta in there to cycle it, then add other fish... neon tetras are especially sensitive, so if you dont do waterchanges they will die and you'll have wasted your money. Please remember to think things through and not impulse buy while you're in the store...

3 Bronze Cories

Sorry for forgetting to message back. I bought 12 goldfish for 1.50 for my friends first early birthday present. I'm thinking of getting a bigger tank and then I'm gonna get more fish. My friend put all of the goldfish with her betta fish in a 1 gallon tank. I feel bad, but only 2 died so far. Thanks for all the advice.

WHY did you buy your friend 12 goldfish to begin with? Does she have a 1200 gallon pond for them? Seriously, neither of you guys should be owning fish until you learn how to use Google.
