Exclamation My agressive Little guy..*sigh*

Well..i recently got a 5 gallon tank :D YAY!!! my little zipper seems to be LOVING it! only problem is..im wanting to add a tank mate...as an experiment to see how agressive zipper would be towards a potential tank mate..i toke a peice of fishing line, affixed it to a light colored, small fake fish..and dropped it into his tank..making it slightly move..and being the little hellfish he is..he went ballistic on it..picking it up and shaking his head like a rabid dog -.- i still want a tank mate..and have been considering shrimp or an african dwarf frog..will he kill these New friends if i place them in the tank?? o.o

"my my zipper, Arent you a pretty boy!"
*flare flare*
"OOO i must take a pic!"
.....
*hides*
"darn..."
*comes out as soon as i put the camera away and flares like no other!"




rest in Peace Zipper and Seattle..my goregeus boys :(

I do not recommend shrimp. They'll be a snack =D he sounds like my Sasuke.. mean little guy. I've got each betta to their own accord... Spartan is the anything-goes, Sasuke is the nothing-but-maybe-a-snail-that's-bigger-if-lucky, Madame the snail murderer cannot have anything, Maine the bully, El Dorado the anything-goes...

If you know your betta, you'll know how compatible. :) some of mine shouldn't be with shrimp, but a snail is fine. So... you gotta use your discretion :) Be aware African Dwarf Frogs like to be in twos or more, plus I had one who munched on my poor betta's tail.

Some bettas sadly are just deemed the nothing-fish.. meaning there is nothing you can add >< other than plants and ornaments.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

5 gallons is to small for other fish. your best off with a snail for such a small tank

hmm...are you sure? o.o :/ to be honest...i was quite excited about the prospect of getting 2 panda cory cats...is it too small for a couple of danios? or a few Tetras?

With Bettas it's a bad idea to get tank mates who ar fish in anything under a ten gallon. ADF will most likely get hurt. Snail is your best option here.

Bettas:
Females: Morgana (CT), Gwendolyn (CT), Amethyst (CT), Hebe (CT), Iris (HMPK), Amphitrite (HMPK), Artemis (HMPK) Dottie (?), Lulubell (CT), Mirabell (CT) & Jubilee (HMPK)

try the shrimp. They may get eaten though. Snails are your best bet but you don't have to get one.

on that note however...what about if i get the frog? will they have enough room in a five gallon tank with my betta? i go by the 1 inch of fish per one gallon rule.my fish is 2.5 inches..so i have a little room to spare.
