Exclamation Before and After

About a month ago I rescued Pebbles from Petsmart. He wasn't swimming around in his tiny cup he was forced into. His water was full of crud. Now a month later hes eating the guppies I give him.
I also have a question! Can I put him in a 30g tank with other betta's and other fish?

YOU FEED YOUR BETTA GUPPIES?!?!?!?

No, this diet is inappropriate.

AND NO NO NO!

You can NEVER put bettas with other bettas, even females with males.
Males will fight to the death, thus the name "siamese fighting
fish"

It depends on what type of fish are in the community, but bettas are to NEVER be kept with other bettas, trust me.

Beautiful betta!

They aren't real guppies! They are dried up guppies and I only give him not even half of it for a treat like every 4 weeks. And anyways my betta did live with another fish that was smaller and he never bugged it.

Ok, but still, that is not an appropiate diet IMO. Their diet should consist mainly of meat, and pellets are the best food. Again, IMO.

What type of fish are your betta living with? Brightly colored or long-finned fish shouldnt be kept with bettas, as bettas mistake them for other bettas and can fight them.

Again, no bettas with other bettas!

Overseas breeders feed theirs guppy fry. There is nothing wrong with supplementing with fish as a fishes diet.

Uhh, I think guppies are made from more meat than pellets. Probably better than pellets.

That's what I was thinking. I think it's also healthier for the fish that pellets cause pellets have a lot of things in it and I hate feeding animals things I don't know where they came from. Plus he likes the dried guppies more than pellets.

My bettas love guppy fry! They go insane for some!!! I don't feed them really guppies because they don't attack them.
