i know, but it was horrible seeing him stuck underneath the filter plastic staring up out of his little eye :( i had to push and twist the filter to un-click it before i could get to him and i was worried i would hurt him :(

but, its two days later now, and hes a-okay!

I thought neons would be fine with my female betta ;_; They were'nt... my girl massacred 4 neons in a few minutes T.T They were too big to swallow so she had them in her mouth and thrashed around. I saw this happening to the last one.. I was too late :[

oh i'm sorry to hear Starbright, that must have been devastating. Bettas have interesting personalities, some will go nuts while others are docile. My betta is inbetween. He's nice enough to allow a tank mate, Froglok (my ADF) but he'll flare at him and get in his face every once in a while.

I was changing half the water today in my tank, and My Betta fish Alli and other 2 x-ray tetra were fine. Then i looked back at them a couple hours later and I only had 1 tetra left! I spent 15 minutes looking in my 3.5 gallon tank, so that doesnt leave very many places for the fish to go. He isn't there anywhere :(. So is it possible that my female betta ate and swallowed my tetra? she chases them around and taunts them every now and again, but i never thought she would do that. I made sure i took out my filter and looked in it, and it is completely clean. No tetra in the filter, but i dont want to think about my betta killing and eating one of my tetras :( can someone please help at all?

Too small a tank for tetra's. Sorry to say your girl might have eaten them.

My BFF used to have a betta in with a pleco and her betta killed the pleco and tore it in HALF and ate part of it. The pleco from what she remembers was bigger then the betta.

There are no coincidences in this world...Only the inevitable.....

Please don't dredge up old threads. Its bad etiquette.

Most likely your female killed and ate the tetra or part of the tetra. I'm sure the other tetra helped out.

Your tank is too small for that many fish. Get rid of the other tetra and leave the betta by herself.

Yes, Bettas can eat anything smaller than them.
