Couple of questions about betta

A male and female betta in the same tank won't attack each other no matter what, right?


How do you know if a betta is male or female?



Also does a clownfish get along well with betta?

They will and this is not advisable. Males are eager to create bubblenests and will attack the female if she is not ready to spawn. If housed in a large tank, you can have several females with one male but provide plenty of plants for the bettas to hide if attacked.

3-4 females per 1 male will be close to guaranteeing no agression, but not completely. 1 male and 1 female will likely lead to the death of the female.

Males have much longer fins than females and are usually much more brightly coloured.

Do you mean clown loach? Clownfish are saltwater.

Clown loaches need a large tank, preferably 100 gallons. These fish can grow to 16 inches maximum and need company of their own.

I'm afraid not! They are beautiful fish though - can't blame you for wanting one.
