Oh no. :( Poor goldfish. ONE goldfish really needs 30 gallons... They get really big. The reason people don't know that is because the fish never live long enough for them to find out. Gold fish are super messy, and 12 in a one gallon along with a betta will spike ammonia so high you would need to change the water multiple times daily. That is, if the ammount of space wasn't already going to kill them alone..

"Only 2 of them have died." If someone said that about humans, there would be outrage. Every life is a life. 2 to me is the same as all 12. It's still sad.

Why would you buy 12 goldfish! Like pitluvs said, you need like a 200 gallon tank, AT THE LEAST! You just death sentences tweleve living creatures!

Your probably right FM12, but here is my two cents anyways:

Like stated before: goldfish cannot live with a betta, because of temp and filtration needs. One fantail goldfish needs 20g+10 for each additional fish. Comets/feeders need 80g each. 12 would need a 1600g POND. For tank mates for a betta, a ten gallon is needed. Neon tetras are known to nip fins, and Cory catfish need a sand/small gravel substrate AND need to be in groups of 4+.

If you ask me, I would get a 5+ gallon and divide it. And get another betta. 0.5g is WAY to small for a betta. 2.5 is the min. They need heat as well.

There are many respected members who keep Bettas in 1g and they do great. Please be respectful of those who do so much work to keep their Bettas happy in a smaller tank :) Just saying :) I have my Hughie in a 0.8g, he's ecstatic in there! He will upgrade eventually, but it's not horrible.
