You will need a ten gallon tank of larger. Cory cats prefer to be in groups of 4 or more, I'd say you could do 4 safely in a 10 gal. Another thing is how aggressive the male betta is, and if you introduce them properly. Make sure the cory cats are in first before the betta, so he doesn't think it's his territory. And of course, don't forget to acclimate! Also, are you sure its an African Cory cat? I've never heard of one.

One 70.G Cichlid Tank-2 Parrotfish, 1 Red Bay Snook, 1 Jack Dempsy, 2 Mayan Cichlids, and 1 Spotted Catfish
1.5 Gallon tank with male butterfly halfmoon-Charlie and 1 mystery snail
10 Gallon tank with female veiltale- Lulu and 2 Mystery Snails
3.5 Nano Saltwater Tank with yellow goby-Buttercup, 3 red leg cortez crabs, 2 nassarius snails, 3 hidden cup corals

i don't know if its the cory or not.. its the african catfish, that looks kinda scary with fins..

If it's a big fish, I'd be more concerned for the betta
a lot of catfish are predators, aren't they? xD

Are you talking about an African Giraffe Catfish? They need a tank size of 150+ gallons.



Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?
