when these people say go get some community fish, dont listen. I took that advice and bought some female guppies, ya well it turns out bettas and guppies dont mix, I find that out after I bought them. guppies are community fish right? my point is research a fish to find out if it is compatable before you go buy it. Some community fish are told to be compatable with bettas, so far the only one that has worked for me is a snail. if you think you fish is depressed than socalise with him, not kidding, just gently wave to him.

I tried keeping 3 bettas in the same tank. Worked great! For a couple weeks. Now the male is not even reconizable. Don't trust em... I learned the hard way. I totally new I shouldn't keep them together... but I tend to learn things the hard way.

yeah well guppies are 1 of those "nippy" comunity fish. they will compete with the betta because they both have flashy colorful tails.
