Question Question

I have a betta fish that's very nice and wouldn't hurt a fly. I want to put him in a real tank instead of the 1 g i hahve him in right now. I now he won't hurt the small fish but do you think he could get along with my goramis or would they bother him (they're the largest fish in the tank)???

I'd be more worried about the gourami than your betta. From what I've heard, they're the closest cousin to the betta and they'll be likely to fight it out.

According to http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/l...340429892.html,
"Depends on the gourami. Some gouramis can be fiercely territorial. Stay away from Kissing fish (which are gouramis), blue gouramis, gold gouramis and platinums. Moonlights and pearls are fairly peaceful. So are honey gouramis and sunset gouramis (both are dwarf gouramis)."
and
"In general gouramis and bettas dont mix as they are both anabantids with bad attitudes..."

If your tank is big enough, you can divide a section of it off for your betta, which would give him a larger home and make you not need to worry for either of the fish's safety c:
