The one on the heater looks like an otto and the other one looks like an albino corydora

Both species are social fish and do best in groups of at least 3...but more is better....the otto does best in 20+gal mature tank with lots of live plants and the corydora at least 10gal but bigger is better with smooth substrate for the delicate barbels...both non-aggressive...otto eats some algae species and the corydora like meat...both need supplement feedings at least 4-5 days a week.....

Their both in withe bettas. the otto is in with a male in a 3 gal. even from the beginning their was NO agressiveness. and the other one, snow, is in a 2 and a half gallon with a female, at the beginning the female just showed whos boss but now their like best friends. She doesn't even care if snow goes into her little cave.

You really need to re-home the otto and corydora...neither of the tank are proper housing for them......or get a bigger tank so you can house them properly in proper groups to met their needs...otherwise it cruel......neither of your Betta tanks are big enough for any other fish....Betta only tanks with either shrimp or snails......
