Yep! Even when it is feeding time, everybody loves it when I give them algae wafers by hand. My goldfish are so well behaved, along with the betas. No nipped fins or chasing about.

Thanks, Kiara. I love the combination. Willie and Si have all the swimming room they want and the inverts have the bottom to explore and plants and driftwood to climb. Watching the Micros and CPOs is fascinating. Plus, the inverts add almost no bioload.

Yep, I can relate with the inverts. What's it like having micro crabs? I was thinking about setting up a 5g for them and some shrimp.

Leaving the stocking choices of the OP aside, for Australian members, I have found that some of the pseudomugil (blue eye) and rainbow species can work well. This is provided your betta is not overly aggressive or has long fins to be nipped.

I have housed honey blue-eyes, delicate blue-eyes and spotted blue-eyes with a betta male in the past and aside from some nipping, they did fine.

While most rainbows prefer hard, alkaline water and can grow quite large, Mcculloch's rainbows are only a small species and the type I kept preferred a soft water environment. Pygmy rainbowfish may also be another option.

My boyfriend kept eastern rainbows with his girls. They were fine.

I think TMCs and dwarf shrimp would be great; just make sure you add a couple of CPOs. Oh, and lots of plants. The TMCs are pretty shy so blue LEDs work very well.

I have a 10-gallon with 6 Harlequin Rasboras, a zebra/nerite snail, three ramshorns, and of course my betta Milo. :)

We keep our girls with guppies (which 3 females had babies, so I'm not going to count them)
7 pygmy cories
an otocinclus who thinks she's a cory
and 3 albino bristlenoses

it's slightly cramped quarters for now, but when we move, the bettas and probably all 3 plecos will get either the 55, or we'll split the plecos up in a 20, and the current 30.

What are CPOs? And I had blue LEDs, but they turned all demon on me. xD They would turn on when they were unplugged. Scared the crap outta me!
