Could a red tail shark(still small) and betta go together in the same tank?

Make it idiot-proof and someone will make a better idiot.

my guess is that when musho3210 wrote cat that was actually just a typo and she probably meant shark as red tailed shark would probably rip your betta up in a tank that small, whereas a red tailed cat would just swallow it. and i know its just temporary nut you shouldnt really keep fish in a tnka that small. if its only until wednesday i would just wait until then before i get the fish.
