Bettas and Cories?

Hey everyone! It has been such a long time since I have been active on this forum, and its good to be back. I had a question, I used to have a devided ten gallon tank, with a male betta on one side, and a female on the other. The female was pretty old, and died a few days ago.(RIP Rocky) Anyway, im looking for a good home for the male betta, so i thought why not put him in with the cories in my 20 gallon long. I would probably keep him in the ten gallon, but i dont have the space for it anymore. So i was basically wondering, would a Male betta would be compatable with about 10 baby cory catfish?

Thanks ahead of time!

How big are the babies? My bettas have always done great with my cories, but they were 1.5"+.

Theyre still quite small, maybe 1/2 inch, maybe an inch (Im not good with measuring) I would suspect that it would be fine, but ill make sure to research it a bit before i go through with it. I would think it would be alright because the betta lives with shrimp, and he has never bothered them before.

I'd think he'd do fine with the cories. Especially if he gets along with shrimp. Just keep an eye on them all at first, but it shouldn't be a problem.

sk, glad to see you back. Did you escape or did someone pay the ransom? Well, that's a dumb question. You escaped, no one would pay the ransom. lol

To answer your question, I would think the cories would be fine. You may want to provide some hiding places just in case though. Java moss, nooks and crannies.
