anyway going fish shopping and went online to check compatibility.... got this Compatibility: Tetras, Danios, Angelfish, Livebearers, Rasboras, Loaches, Plecos, and Catfish.
first concern was angelfish....
another site said about rainbow and red tail sharks aswell as swordtails....
someone shed some light please !!!
i have a 100L tank so space isnt really an issue
Angels get pretty Aggressive.. and prefer tall Tanks..
Red tailed and Rainbow sharks are big no-nos, Both are pretty Territorial and aggressive.
Neons,Rasboras are usualy best kept in groups of 10 or more.. they get insecure in small groups and will nip at anything in sight in less than groups of 10..
Loaches, Khuli Loaches are peacefull , Prefer plenty of hiding spaces away from light..
Yo-Yo Loaches never ever put with a betta , as they will tear his tail to shreds and could probably kill him/her
Danios are usualy fine with Bettas ,tho are prone to getting stressed if constantly chased around..
Livebearers are fine with bettas, Bettas will probably eat most fry born in the same tank though But need their space and hiding spots too
