I'd like to know what are all of your experiences and opinions with housing Bettas with Gouramis. I have a betta in a 55 gallon tank which houses a few different tetras, corries, pleco, guppies, danios, and gouramis. I've seen different compatibility charts that basically say "NEVER, NO, DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT" but because my betta showed to be so harmonious in the past 3 years I've own him, I decided it was worth trying.
My betta seems to not even know my gouramis exist, except on a few occasions where he'll flare at a female who will occasionally follow him (I swear she's in love).
I don't know. To sum it all up, I suppose what I'm asking is:
Exactly how lucky am I to have such an awesome fish (who is beautiful, I might add)?
Also I would like to add that I am very excited to be a part of this site now! I am looking forward to sharing stories and pictures on all 4 of my bettas (and the many I have owned in the past). I am also looking forward to reading other's stories, which I have done before, but now I can comment too! :)
