Again I will just say that my bettas get along just fine with danios, and if you had a big enough tank they would get alon ok

I agree that if the tank is big enough then they should be fine. Bettas have different personalities and some don't do well with danios and others are fine with them. It all depends on their personality. :)

Ah yes, I had a betta as a kid... I named him Vinnie. He was too much! I stuck one of those brightly colored small squishy fishing lures in his tank (sans hook) tied with a fishing line. We'd play that way, I'd wiggle the lure, and he'd attack! He knew it was just a game, cuz the lure stayed in his tank, but he pretty much ignored it unless I was around to wiggle it for him. He did a very specific flippy-twirly dance when he wanted to play. I miss that little guy!

Shrimp would make good tankmates for a betta, unless he decides to eat them.lol

My little Mojo won't flare at the TV but I have found him at the front of his tank just staring at the TV while it's on like he's watching it! I just love how bettas can have so many different personalities! So cute!
