Hi, I'm new here
Okay, so I currently have a 20 gallon aquarium with 1 female betta, 1 rubbernose plecostomus, and 3 ghost shrimp. It's a very heavily decorated tank; there are many caves and plants to hide in. I'm curious about which fish I can safely add to my tank that won't disturb my betta or eat my shrimp.
I heard that fancy guppies are a risk, because of there coloring. I wasn't sure if it'd be a good idea, even with the many decorations + hiding spots. My betta isn't overly aggressive, but I am not sure if I would want to take the risk, just in case she injured them. Do female bettas go after guppies, too, or is it generally just males?
I was also considering adding a small shoal of neon tetras in the place of the guppies, but I heard that they could carry diseases. I am curious what other people have to say. Has anyone housed female betta(s) successfully with fancy guppies?
Thanks! Looking forward to your replies!
