    Aren't white clouds cold water fish that like fast running water?

    How about endlers? 1 male and 2 females.....but truthfully, I wouldn't put more fish in 4-5g with a Betta...it really is too small IMO......

    Stressed fish are often sick fish and sick fish can cause all the fish in the tank to get sick.....any added fish would be taking a chance.......

    would 3 white clouded mountain minnows be okay they are only very small and they get along with the other bettas they have been in with?

    Okay.....4-5g....IMO-I wouldn't add any fish...but maybe 3 dwarf cory cats...but that could be risky in 4-5g and they really do better in groups of 6 or more
    Maybe 3 otto, once the tank has matured some in about 4-5 months-they would work
    snails, different shrimp like red cherry or the yellows
    Not a lot of swimming room and with limited swimming room come stress and more chances of the Betta catching them even with hiding places and plants...check into kuli loaches-I know they need to be in groups, I have never kept them but they are small and burrow I think....

    He should...however, if he is working on the one in the back that is harder for you to see, he may be doing this for a reason...some fish don't like to be watched and can feel safer and do a better job, so you may want to leave it to help increase you chance for success...now that I think about it......
    Fish will often eat their eggs/fry when they feel threatened-as odd as this sounds they would rather get the nutrition than let something else get the nutrition-they do this so that they will have more energy to spawn again in a safer place to improve chance of success.
