I just picked one up from petco and adore the way he looks, hes in my 29g by himself right now and about 3 inches long. Poor thing is missing 2 legs and a feeler, found out after I got him home x.x
Anyways, I know male bettas generally cant be housed with crabs and such since they are slow and have long fins.
However, would it be possible to have a plakat male in with a blue lobster? The tank is a tall so the betta would mostly hang out around there and the fins would be short. Id also get a king betta from petco so it would be bigger than average.
I really only want one fish in this tank since I'll be focusing on plants and want a center piece fish and bettas are the prettiest fish out there :P The tank will be lightly planted though.
If this cant be done, does anyone have other suggestions? Im kinda at a loss of what fish I want since all I really know is small schooling fish and bettas x.x
