female betta with paradise fish
So while i was in hawaii for two weeks my boyfriend managed to kill both of our male bettas (Beast and Timmy).
Anyways, I was at Petco the other day and stumbled upon a Paradise Gourami. I'd always wanted to keep gourami's, and since he was pretty cheap (only 1.50) I went ahead and got him for my tank.
I still really like the personality that bettas have and started considering females so I can actaully have a community tank. My question is will the female betta be alright in the tank with the paradise fish? Since I know a male in there would be out of the question.
Nooo. Paradise gourami are quite territorial. They'll kill your female betta the same way a male betta would.
Also, paradise gourami are sub-tropical fish. They should be kept without a heater, unlike bettas.
On the other hand, they're really cool fish, so have fun!
I have 1 male and 2 female paradise gouramis with a female beta, a school of neons, and a school of panda cories in my 29g tank and I very rarely see even a nipped fin. I have planted tank with water sprite, which is a floating plant. I believe this helps in keeping everyone happy.
i had 3 females and a female paradise in a 15 gal with no problems, i think if you were to do that make sure it is a female paradise.
