A female betta should do all right with tetras; it's the long fins of a male that tend to cause trouble because the tetras like to nip the fins.

Stress stripes are horizontal stripes, usually three, that a betta gets when, uh, stressed. They often pale in color so the stripes stand out. Here's my one of my girls when I first got her.

Ahh, ok, I see what you mean - a female betta could look like a zebra danio with those stripes!

Thanks for all your help with this.
