Harlequin Rasboras & a betta

Anyone else keep Rasboras? I have six in my 10-gallon. They love to chase each other! It's like a never-ending game of tag. My betta doesn't seem to mind them at all, which is great! They are beautiful, too.



And, well, how can I resist sharing a picture of Milo? Isn't he gorgeous? n_n


5.5 - Xerxes. Divided 20L - Henrietta & many snails.

Swimming in the warm waters of betta heaven: Milo, Dragon, Jasper, Shiloh.

Do you think rasboras would coexist well with female guppies?

Pretty sure rasboras need soft acidic water and guppies prefer hard alkaline water. Temperament-wise, they'd be fine, but their water parameters are pretty different.

Life.
