What fish are best to add to a sorrority tank

i have a sorrority tank with three bettas in it and theyve been pretty good together for almost a year now. im planning on getting a bigger tank and want to make it a community tank. What fish would be best to add to a tank with female bettas? I also currently have one chinese algie eater in the tank.

What size is the tank? 3 females is a bit unstable - I would recommend adding more as soon as possible.

I would also seriously recommend rehoming that CAE. They get big and become very aggressive as they age. They eat algae as juveniles but as adults move on to sucking the slime coat off their tankmates. Best only for a species tank.

The first fish I would focus on adding to your tank are at least another two bettas. After that, what sort of tankmates are available depends on two things - your tank size and your water chemistry (pH and hardness). Get back to us on that and we'll be able to help you more. :)

What ^^ said. That CAE gotta go, or it will pick your fish off one by one once it starts hitting maturity :)
