Smile Another post in large red lettering, this time about tank sizes for tankmates.

For a betta to be kept with other fish, they MUST have at least a 10 gallon tank. This allows the other fish to have lots of room to swim, and that the tank can handle the bio-load of the fish. In tanks under 10 gallons bettas may be kept with small invertebrates.

I thought I should clear this up, as there are countless posts with people asking whether it is OK to keep *insert fish here* with a betta in their 2.5 gallon tank.

I hope I don't make the large red letters a habit, it is so tempting though!! ._.

Can I keep some fish with my betta in a coffee cup? JK

I learned your lesson you're trying to teach the hard way. Actually, a platy that died learned it the hard way. And 4 ghost shrimp. I no longer want ANYthing except my bettas, each one by himself with only real and fake plants for tankmates.

Although I do have an extra 10 gallon now. . thanks to the $1/gallon sale. :)
