Glofish?

Would I be able to have glofish with my betta in a 10g? If so, how many?

Glofish are pretty, and bright! But..... thats bad to mix with betta. My brother tried to introduce some glofish into his betta, but they were too flashy and the betta attacked the poor lil guys. Im pretty sure they are just danios, correct me if im wrong. But regular danios or zebra danios are better cuz they are not so flashy, so less attracting for the bettas to attack. Any who..... glofish are mad expensive any way... i see them from 4-6 bux.... kinds ridiculous i think, just cuz they are bright and pretty haha. Good luck if you try!

Zebra danios should be fine. Glo fish are just Genetically modified for their color. Maybe try Rosy red minnows too. Those are only 13 cents at petsmart! Or feeder guppies.

I had zebra danios with a female betta and they were all fine. I had 4 zebra danios, 1 female betta and 3 peppered cories all in a 10 gallon tank no problems.

Sounds good. I really love my cories, they're so fun to watch. And zebra danios are zippy little fish.
EDIT: Make sure you cycle your 10 gallon. Cories are pretty sensitive to water perameters.

I've had my tank set up for almost a year, so I'm pretty safe.
