I really wanted to get ghost shrimp for his tank, but maybe corys would be good. I'm not sure whats going on with these stupid glow neons. I'm going to call the LFS store in the AM to see if they will take them back! Now that they dont have the betta to pick on they are attacking eachother! All of them have chunks missing out of their fins and they didnt have any until I took Master Betta out. I was shocked to see them chasing eachother and nipping at eachother. I thought neons were supposed to be great community fish. Ugh!

How many glow neons do you have? Maybe you don't have enough of them.

Yep, been around forever. Instead of the blue and red stripe they have a bright orange stripe.

Corys are great little bottom fish to put in with your betta. They stay out of the bettas way, they dont nip him and its gives your bettas some intereaction and somthing to watch. Bettas are very smart I love watching mine and they seem to watch everything that is going on in my room. Im actually looking into buying a few corys this week.

...Never seen or heard of them. Can't find them anywhere online either....I find the Glowlight Tetra, and the Neon Tetra, but not a 'Glow Neon Tetra'. Are you sure they aren't Glowlights? Can you get a picture?

They sound like glowlights to me.. the kind they sell those tanks with the blacklights for. I actually think I've heard them called Glow Neons before.

Wondering the same thing here. Tetras need to be in a school of al LEAST 6, the more the better. When kept in a small group they will try to blend in by schooling with other fish. Which, with unwilling participants results in chasing, harassment and nipping.

There were only 4, as that was all the LFS had left. I took them back and got 6 ghost shrimp for now. Master Betta "sniffed" one but has has no interest since. They are too big for him to try and eat anyway. I still would like to add corys if I can. How many could I add if any?

how big is your tank? Corys need to be in groups of at least 3 so you would need at least a 10 gallon tank
