  1. Baby Female Betta with Neon Tetras?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I was wondering if I could put my female baby betta in my 5 gallon tank with my neon tetras. She's just about as big as they are, and seems to be pretty chill. (I wouldn't guess that female bettas are all that aggressive anyways though.) What are the risks there? Would they hurt each other? Is...
  2. Evil Neon Tetra

    Other Fish
    I cycled my 5 gallon tank and put in some live plants and then I introduced 5 neon tetras.... apparently one of the tetras is evil because it chased all the other tetras around relentlessly. I chalked it up to new tank anxiety and decided to turn the lights off in the tank and allow them to get...
  3. Aggressive Female Betta

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello everybody, A few months ago I bought a female betta and she was in a 55-gallon tank by herself for about two weeks. Somehow I ended up with another female betta and long story short the original female betta wasn't happy ( Don't worry the other female is still alive healthy and in her...
  4. Trying to add fish to a 10 gal with a male betta

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    So I have a 10 gallon tank and a male betta, he is pretty mellow, not super aggressive. I just got 2 neon tetras and he is fine with them, he chases them but believe me if he wanted to kill them he would have :) I know that tetras are schooling fish and in a day or two I will get 3 more neons, I...

I bought a tetra 10 gallon starter kit ( from Walmart ugggghh) and of course it sprang a leak almost immediately after setup ( do not recommend...
  6. Would bettas eat neon tetras??

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have a 55 gallon tank that has been running since the end of March. Neon tetras are the first fish I got, and eventually, female bettas are the last fish I got. I've had the bettas for about 3-4 months now (there are 6 of them. There used to be 7 but I removed one because she was getting...

    Betta Fish Compatibility

  10. Neons from Walmart

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Yes, I got them from Walmart. Bite me! I got two neon tetras from there, because one looked sick and I wanted to help. I got the other because it kept swimming to the edge of the tank to look at me and it was too cute. I also got four rosey red minnows to complete my school of five for my tank...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So, I'm fishless cycling this 20 gallon tank right now. I love bettas, and have seen videos, and heard that it's possible to have sororities. What I DIDN'T know...is that I'm probably making a huge mistake. Unfortunately, I didn't start reading the actual experiences of other people until AFTER...
  13. New 15 Gallon Tank....

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Let me add that for the last 4 months I've been maintaining a 1 gallon tank. My fish Sam (the betta) was quite happy in his 1 gallon tank. The tank after all was an upgrade from a pint hexagon that Sam lived in for 2 months. The hexagon was an upgrade from the cup at the store. Well I got a...
  14. I Need Your Opinion

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Well, petsmart is having a sale until june 20th, and otos and harlequin rasboras are only 1 dollar each, but the neon tetras are still the same price. Once I finish cycling my tank (hopefully before the sale ends) I'm definately going to get either the harlequins or the tetras to be tankmates...
