Really cute! I like it!

That's nice. I didnt know you could put a beta in with other fish!

ThalesthePearsei 02-23-2009 01:47 PM

you can, you just have to make sure the fish you have with a betta dont nip at his fins.

Nice tank! :)

Cool I am going to get myself a betta they are so beautiful. I have angels and no one nips at their fins so I should be good.

It is a cute tank, but your stocking isn't. Not trying to be rude though....

dramaqueen 02-23-2009 08:44 PM

I don't think you can put bettas with angelfish. Bettas shouldn't be put with fish that have long, flashy fins.

ThalesthePearsei 02-23-2009 09:09 PM

whats wrong with the stocking?

aunt kymmie 02-23-2009 09:36 PM

Too many fish in such a small tank...:-(
Neons are best in a school of 6, cories like to shoal together in a group.
