The tale of two tanks; can platys and bettas live together?
I have a few tanks set up now, one with a male betta and snail, one with greenwater, one with a female betta, and one with a 7-month old platy.
The female betta and baby platy are the fish in question here. The betta named Bandit for her black "mask" over her eyes lives in solitary in a 5g tank. The platy named Hickory lives, as of today, on his own in a 10g tank. Both are small fish. Hickory has been known to nip at snails, but never at other fish like his and brothers and sisters and "aunt". I haven't had Bandit long enough to tell her personality. Can they coexist?
Two birds with one stone? If you can foresee any issues between my fish, please let me know and perhaps tell me what I should keep with them seperately.
