Well after the night the now named Alexander the great betta has calmed down. He's not flareing as much and isn't charging as much either, he even sometimes swims along with the mollies. The mollies also aren't as active and arent darting around as much which probly helps. Alexander does get territorial still and will flare very large if he's just next to a plant, then he charges a little just to prove he's still boss. I'm still worried as I don't want Alexander to feel threatened so I'm thinking I'll exchange the mollies. Are neon tetras good? I feel they may be to small and pretty for Alexanders liking. Any other fish that would make Alexander the great content?

Oh and I don't have pictures of Alexander yet, but he's really pretty. He's mostly silver with a lot of light shimmery blues on his fins and his body has a little light shimmery purple on the back of his body and the white is towards the front with a few small spots of purple and blue

...That would make a lot more sense thanks for pointing that out. Though a foot long molly would be kinda cool....

I hear a lot of people keeping neon tetras with their betta without issue, personally I haven't kept much with my bettas so I wouldn't know from experiance.....I'm not much of a tetra fan. Probably a school of 5-6 would work....but always keep an eye out and watch for aggression/nipping/stress

Alexander sounds gorgeous though I can't wait to see pics.
