My fishy book i have says there are some species of hatchet fish that get up to an inch, and some male platies get up to 1.5 inches. Okay, my betta is about 2.75 inches. All that added together is a good stock for a 10 gallon, yes? But my handbook also says hatchet fish like groups of 6 or more, but it doesnt say hatchet fish can count or do math... Will the fish know the difference [pun]?
Oh, can i also add a snail and two shrimp?
Am i out of my mind? Will my betta be mean to such a bright colored platy?
