What kind of catfish is it? I am assuming it's a cory, which should be kept in groups. Although cories and bettas generally get along just great, he would probably be happier with some other cories and 2.5 gallons is too small for a group. So the betta and the cory should be fine together, although a bigger tank would be best.

Thanks! It is a small cory. I noticed you have puffers, we got one @Walmart recently and was told it would be OK with other fish. We promptly took it out after it grabbed another fish and tore its eye out (fish later died) I discovered the people at Walmart do not know what they are selling!!!

companions

hey, i have a 2.5 gallon tank, and I'd really love to give my betta a companion, but don't know if it is a big enough space, and what kind of fish would get along in there. any suggestions on a breed and how many i'd be likely to put in with no harm?

No fish. A snail, or a few Ghost Shrimp may work, and you would be at your limit.

I don't know that I would even put a snail in a 2.5 gallon unless it had a really, really good filter and you kept up on the water changes. They are good poop producers! I guess it would depend on the type of snail, too.... One apple snail needs 2.5 gals all by itself, according to the snail forum I'm on. And I'd believe it too, based on the poop I vaccuum outta my tank each week.!

And depending on the personality of the betta in such a small place, could be trouble.
