There are some cichlids you can keep a Betta with. I have heard Multis can work.

Last week a girl at Petsmart got really pissy with me and said that bettas are great in vases eating just peace lily roots. She told me my planted cycled tanks were no good :/

current pets: Alejandro Marmalade

Rehomed bettas (because of my move):
Cornelius Buttknuckle, Limoncello Dandy Lion, Cumulus Meriweather, Nimbus McCloud

RIP
Pinkerton Flowers and the fish formerly known as Prine Purplius LeGrape

Pet stores. One lady was saying ( telling me) "oh. Easiest fish to care for." She went on about water changes once a month. Flakes and how they don't get disease. I like YELLED at her "I HAVE 9 BETAS I CAN CARE FOR THEM."

Remeber wheat has to be the first ingredant in Betta food.
