OK, I just went through an ADF problem with my female, Ocean. Ocean is the dopeyiest fish ever, and is very gentle. I put an ADF in with her, it attacked her ONCE, so she grabbed it by the leg and started trying to tear it apart. I had to take the frog back.
My friend also had a betta and an ADF, and the same thing happened (except her fish actually killed the frog!). I don't know what the problem was.

I don't suggest ADFs and bettas. There seem to be very mixed reviews about bettas and ADFs. Plus, they are a hassle to feed.

I've heard great things about shrimps, snails and bettas. Good luck!

Ok, I'm thinking about my 1 betta, 1 mystery snail and 7 red phantom tetras. Anyone think this is a bad idea? Seems like people suggest tetras, but are these particular tetras ok? Anyone have these guys?

Hmm, not sure. They seem sort of flashy to be with a betta.

Also for future reference, this should go under Betta Compatibility, not Betta Care :)

I actually stand by the idea of Ghost Shrimps...

They ARE alittle creepy at first but you'll quickly fall in love with the little critters.
They have almost no bio-load and they keep your tank clean. Worst comes to worst your Betta may or may not eat them.

I got 12, months ago... and I still have those 12 (I think) plus a few baby ones now.

I have 5 red cherry shrimp and a bunch of babies now with my betta; although he pecked at them the first day, he leaves them alone now. I threw my betta around my other tanks a long time ago and this is what I saw. Didn't bother neon tetra, chased harlequin rasboras when bored, left saimese algae eaters (flying fox) alone, left otto's alone.
Really depends on your bettas special personality

Don't get platy's in a betta (single male or sorority) setup, worse decision I ever made. If I found a good home for these 3, I would gladly let em go!
