i was going to get a dragon once but they were like 14 bucks D: and they were all unusually tiny.
I thought tetras were supposed to be good roommates to bettas. What subspecies and what tank g (roughly) are we talking about?

Yes they are but my experience shows that if kept in a school of 10+ they stop that like permanently.
Also space is important. Most species fin nip when they feel endangered. Big schools and large space makes them feel more at rest and stop that behavior.
