In a tank that small, they should be the only fish in there, you can probably take either one of them back to the pet store where you got them if you don't want to start a bigger/or second tank.

Good luck with them. Remember though, some bettas just aren't good with other fish no matter what you put them with unless the tank is big enough for them to never run into another fish

One, that tank is a perfect size for your betta. It is a bit too small for a tank mate. However, it also depends on the temprament of your betta. Some are more aggressive than others. Your betta may just be a single dweller...which is fine.

I am quite nervous, I am going to try and introduce my betta to some tank mates at the end of this week, although, my tank is 10 gallons...working up to a move to a 30-50gallon tank soon.

Good luck!!

u shouldnt put a male and female 2gether anyway way because the will probably fight and the male might kill her. if she gets pregnaut and he shows no interest she will probably die.

Bettas do NOT get pregnant. They are egg layers, not livebearers
