Fish mix?

Don't know if this is the right place to post this, if not I apologize. What, if any, other kind of fish can co exist in a Betta bowl with 1 Betta? TIA

How big is it? If it is a bowl, no. Is it heated? Is it filtered?

Is it a large bowl that's heated? How big? If your talking standard bowl size, than nothing else should go in there.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

If it's a standard 1 gal bowl, there is nothing else aside from a single betta that can live in there.

You can't put anything else but a Betta in a tank below 5 gallons... Besides shrimp, nothing really.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I wouldn't put anything in that tank. There isn't very much room that the shrimp can get away from the betta. They will most likely be food for your betta.

Bettas don't get lonely or they need "friends". They prefer to be alone and are solitary so having tank mates will actually annoy them. I thought that too even though I knew but I just say, "If you're happy, I don't mind." :)
