No, because Glo Fish are Danios, which are highly aggressive towards Bettas by nipping at their fins. So, no the cannot live together.

I can't believe you're gone, Tom.

Well, you MIGHT be able to do this, but you couldn't get 3-6 glofish, to reduce nipping, you need a big school of at least 9. Besides, you need schools of 7 anyway

I have to agree with what was posted, I own Danios and I would never put them with a Bettas. Sorry!
