Red tail and betta?
 
Could a red tail shark(still small) and betta go together in the same tank?

my guess is that when musho3210 wrote cat that was actually just a typo and she probably meant shark as red tailed shark would probably rip your betta up in a tank that small, whereas a red tailed cat would just swallow it. and i know its just temporary nut you shouldnt really keep fish in a tnka that small. if its only until wednesday i would just wait until then before i get the fish.

sorry i meant shark, i was talking about red tail cats on youtube earlier, must have gotten mixed up.

im a he :)
