Marine Betta Compatibility

Hey guys,

just wondering what sorta fish i could stick with a marine betta? seems everywhere i go i get a different story. Im looking at a coral beauty, clowns, starfish, hawkfish, maybe a sixline wrasse? i heard they love to munch shrimp so i guess a few cleaner shrimp is out of the question??

Thanks for you help guys!

marine comets are awesome. they are shy at first but before you know it he will be searching the tank in search of small fishies so i would watch out for the clowns and wrasse. other than those i dont believe they will go after the others and vise-versa. and watch out cause coral beauties love meaty fare = cleaner shrimp :D
ohh. and i almost forgot.welcome to the forum. its good to have you with us

What size tank are you looking to put it into? You do know they get huge and fast right? I would maybe think about getting one for my 400g.

its a 90 gallon... is that going to be ok? everywhere ive looked says they really only need a 55 gal so i figured i had tons of room for him.

do fish actually eat cleaner shrimp? i mean i thought they were pretty much left alone so they can help service the fish for parasites?

thanks again guys

I might place a marine betta in a 90g by itself. Yes grouper and bass type fish like the betta will eat anything they can fit in their mouths.
