tankmates

yeah i know i said im not gonna get any more fish for my tank. At least right now. Wanna get this cycle thingy done with lol. So anyways,what kinda fish gets along with bettas? I know it depends on their personality and all. So i dunno how my guy would be. Im really liking corys though. Do you have to keep 6 of them for them to be happy? Is like 2 okay lol. Just curious. Other than that, i think tetras and rasboras are compatible. I think dramaqueen said danios can be too hyper for some bettas. They are cool looking but i dunno. What bout white clouds? They look really small though,would my fish try to eat them. Ah well. just wondering. no plans for more fish as of now. maybe down the road. *figured out how to spell rasbora lol*

I've heard that cories make good tankmates for bettas and I think you DO have to have 6 for them to be happy.lol

Pygmy cories are really small. I think you could do a school of 5 in your tank and they would be happy. My betta loved his cories when he was with them :)

Pygmys are what I'm going to add to my betta tank, if I can ever find the little guys. So far, no luck. I may have to do aquabid. I really wanted to avoid the stress on the fish as far as shipping but that may be the only way I can get them. I'm convinced they would be perfect for a betta tank

Oh so they are hard to find? That stinks. Is there like a big diff between the pygmy and dwarfs? they look similiar lol. but thas just bout all i know about them. I found four so far that stay small. The salt and pepper and false bandit. Course i dunno what i will find in stores. My luck no small ones. Im gonna check out this other pet store not far see what they have. Then prolly the other lfs. If no luck there,ill go back down to the NE see what kind they have,they had a pretty big fish deparment. Good luck with your search!
