I want to get a few other fish to put with my female betta..i need help!

Ok, so I'm about to go to Petsmart to get a bigger aquariam (about 6 gallons)... Which other fish will go well with my female betta?? I know I won't be able to put them in right away bc I'll need to let the filter run for a while! Help!

neon tetras, zebra danios, ottos, mystery snails, some bettas tolerate shrimp, but i don't reccomend it. You could also get FEMALE guppies, but NO males. cardinal tetras are good too, but they are SUPER hard to keep in a small tank. try 3 ottos, and 5 neon tetras with one female betta. That willl prly work out great!

I've heard that danios were too hyper for bettas.

I have two six gl. with a betta in each. One betta has otos as his tankmates and they all do very well together. My other betta will soon have 6 or so pygmy cories to join him. I prefer to keep peaceful bottom dwellers w/ my bettas. I don't want to worry about fin nipping, aggression, etc. so I take the easy way out...

Yep, I'd say danios are out when it comes to bettas. WAY too hyper!

thanks!!! i'm writing all this down so i can take it tomorrow- I'm getting the fish tomorrow, I got the tank set up and going for 24 hours before I put anything in. Also, how many fish could I put in a 3 gallon tank with a betta? I've got 2 betta's and i don't want to make the other one lonely!

Bettas have different personalities. I guess some can tolerate danios better than others. :)
