I was searching the tank picture thread and saw that people were housing other fish with male bettas. I have always housed my bettas separately so that really interested me. I had been planning to get a 5 gallon, which I read is not suitable for more than two separate male bettas or a betta and some shrimp or a snail.
I didn't see anything about platies right off the bat, but I do know that dwarf platies can usually be housed in a 5 gallon with no problems since they're small.
Any experience with a male betta and dwarf platies in a 5 gallon? Or at all?
I'm not set on getting other fish, it's just something I'd like some information about. =) I don't really want to go bigger than 5 gallons at this time. We do have a 29 gallon RES tank with 2 regular platies.
