One of the more special betta tank mates

He's a cute little guy, staying in the 10g with oscar(a VT betta) 2 apple snails and some random snails.

It's one of the cases that depends on personality I guess, like Skalars,guppies and betta..

I love aquatic crabs,and crabs in general. I would love to keep some of the freshwater crabs or lobster/ crayfish with bettas I just don't want to take the chance of them hurting the betta or the betta hurting the crustacean. Just make sure he can't escape the tank :D


.....Betta Fish are like potato chips, it's hard to have just one!

I want a freshwater crab! So jealous ><

He hasn't been aggressive at all with the fish or snails?

I'm hoping they make Thai micro crabs legal here. I'd love some of those.. we do get little freshwater ones up in the far north of Aus, but I don't know anyone selling them..
