I decided to set up this thread for anyone who has betta-compatible tankmates and needs help with them. These include guppies, platies, swordtails, cory cats, otos, snails, shrimp, tetras, and pretty much any other small fish you can safely house with bettas. I know when I branched out into other fish beside bettas, I had a hard time finding a non-betta forum that offered help and info so I always ended up back here. I'm rationalizing this thread by saying they're BETTA-compatible tankmates, lol. Post questions about the health of your non-betta tankmates, as well as any concerns you might have about housing said tankmates with your bettas. This isn't a stocking advice thread, though, more of a health thread.
So, my current betta-compatible tankmates are 4 panda cory cats, 6 danios, and 3 platies. The platies are new (3 days) and won't eat anything I offer, including New Life Spectrum Small Fish formula pellets, Omega One Veggie Flakes and Color Flakes, frozen bloodworms, spirulina pellets, or pretty much anything else. Any suggestions?
