Question Getting my betta a friend

I was wondering if glow fish are compatible with bettas?

It depends on the tank size, really. Anything under a ten gallon? No way. Even then it might be iffy. GloFish are bright, flashy, and fast, making them very prime targets for a betta. If the betta doesn't try to kill it, it could just get extremely aggravated. Also, it depends on the betta itself. Some bettas do well with tankmates, others hate it. Some will start biting their own tails to deal with the stress. We need some more info before any answer is giving definitively (:

Yeah, I'm thinking a no on the glo fish....because it needs a ton of care, and I just don't have the money for that. I was hoping on getting Rox a friend so he won't be lonely and bored, because if he is...he bites his tail. I dunno, maybe if I had another tank next to his?

If ur tank is about 9-10gallons, get him a school of 6 harlequin rasboras. they are fun to watch and sometimes the betta might chase it but can never catch it lol, they are way to fast haha
