A 1g tank is too small for a betta. I would't suggest getting any other fish.

I think White Clouds would need a filter as well.

i think a filter would be safest. and if you wanted to add anything in with your bettas you need to get at least a 5-10 gallon tank. sorry :cry:

10g is minimum for a small group of white clouds.

i would sugest getting a 10 g. because:

1 your betta should have more room than just 1 g.
2 there is no way you can fit anything in with the betta
3 you can enjoy more fish!
4 your betta will thank you for the space and the friends. :wink: [/i]

I tried a 10 gallon with a betta, 3 white clouds and 2 cories. The betta constantly chased the other fish kept them from food. I finally put the betta in his own tank and went with 5 white clouds and three cories in the 10 gallon.

White clouds are a very active fish. In my opinion, a 10g is too small. A tank with a footprint of at least 24"x12" would be the better choice. This is the footprint of a 29g or a 2g long. One may be able to make do with a 15g but that would be a bare bones minimum.
