Can I put a fighter fish with these 2 fish?
I was just wondering, a friend of mine bought these two little fish to replace the ones that unfortunetly didn't make it :(
Does anyone know if it's safe to put a Fighter Fish with these two little fellas?
those blurry pics of the fish look like a type of danio, you need at least 5 danios, 6 would be better
My friend only gave me 2. Danio's sound like the correct name for them. But I want to put a Fighter Fish in with it (I.e. a Betta)
no that would deffinatly not work, first of all danios need at least 5, second of all danios are fin nippers and they will probably tear the fins off the betta, third of all danios like a strong current, bettas dont like any current at all
Its quite possible that the danios might start nipping at the bettas fins...especially if not kept in a group. Many schooling fish behave more agressively if removed from the group. And bettas in particular tend to get nipped at by more active fish.
:shock: lol dam. I have no luck with fish.
Isn't the Fighter fish supposed to FIGHT them off haha... Okay then, so either a) Get 4 more Danio's to make a pack...
b) what other fish can I put in with them?
well overall you'd probably be better off completing the group of danios. If you decided to get other fish however you would want to stick with other active fish that aren't likely to be bothered by the danios zipping around. Tiger barbs perhaps? They'll fend for themselves just fine with danios.
Okay, well i'll get 4 more Danio's, and maybe buy a Tiger one like you said.
There's no special requirements for a Tiger Barb?
