White clouds are ok in terms of temperament, but they are sub-tropical and prefer much cooler waters to bettas. One species will generally be uncomfortable if you keep both together.

Life.

Some of these little dudes can be very sensitive, though, so you need pristine water quality and preferably a densely planted tank. You also need to have the right water in terms of pH and hardness.
Ah, my tap water came out perfectly for betta fish, absolutely perfect conditions. I add water conditioner to my water, and the Endlers Livebearers stuck out from the list you gave me. :) I plan to have a planted set up with moss and good lighting.

I am also wondering about CPO fish. I just found out about them, I like how lobsters look and behave. Little things that pick at the ground a lot kind of creep me out, but I do like the reddish/orange of the cpo fish so i'm curious about them now ^^ <3 thanks!

What's CPO fish? :s
White clouds are cold water and probably wouldn't colour up as well in warm water anyways.. Lugia wants something colourful :)
Endler's are good too if you can find them. They are livebearers so you should end up with lot's of them :) Which is fine because they are oh-so-cute.

I don't know if the activeness of the blue-eyes and threadfins would stress a male betta out. I have blue-eyes in a temporary 10 gallon and that feels way too small for them. A 20 gallon long is an ideal size, as they will enjoy having the space to move about.

Several species of blue-eyes do well in softer water, as do threadfins. Not all rainbowfish need hard water to thrive. My honey blue-eyes come from tannin-stained creeks.

However, I find blue-eyes will do always best in a heavily, natural planted set-up. You might even get to see them sparring/spawning.
I was planning on the blue eyes for my 17gallon tank with a betta. I hope that it works out okay o-O I figured it saying they can live in a 10 gallon meant they were generally calm fishies. I know someone on here keeps them in a 15 with a betta.. It may depend on the fish..

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
