AqAdvisor says I can have one betta, three otocincli, and six ghost shrimp. My stocking level would be 111% but I don't have a problem taking out a little bit of extra water when I do a water change. I've had a betta get along with african dwarf frogs and ghost shrimp before, but I'm not so sure about otocincli.

Get anything but the Chi. While it looks cool, it's not. I made a top out of lexan, added led light strips. The filter works well although inconvienant to clean/change.
If I were going to do it again, I'd get an Evolve 8

Decided on the floor. All glass, hood, decent lighting, comes with stratum, 7.9 gallons. Perfect.

They get along fine, though every betta is unique in which tankmates they will tolerate and observation is certainly a must.

http://nippyfish.net/ is a great site with betta information including tankmates and potential issues. http://nippyfish.net/bettas-101/tank...atfish-bettas/

The only issues I have run into with Otos and Bettas is feeing otos sinking wafers - my betta tends to steal the food.. much fasting was done. So, I've had to look into alternatives to make sure the otos are getting enough food.

i just picked up an aqueon 2.5 gal kit at Petco for around 32.00. full hood, light, filter and for me a perfect size for a betta. They now sell a divider for this one, but I like to house only one betta here. Also the crescent 3 gal is a great tank, although the filter is much to strong for a betta.

good luck --

I've never had issues with the current in the crescent. You can turn it down. Of course I do have plants in front of it that may be baffling some of the flow.
