I have a 20 gallon tank with a male betta in it, a few plastic plants, very small filter and 1/2 inch gravel. What are some dark colored, short finned, bottom dwelling fish that can live with him and the gravel will not hurt?

You could get 3-4 otos! Those are cute and eat algae too!

Make that 5+ otos. :) They are social and like big groups. Beware that they can be extremely sensitive in the first month, so only add them to a well established, planted tank.

You also need the right water parameters for them. What is your pH and water hardness?

Make the tank dense with plastic plants. I'd do your single betta, 6 otos, and 8 Ember Tetras.

Thank you so much. I might put "Blue" (the betta) back in the 2 gal. tank and set up my big one with others.
