It a common misconception that Betta Fish cannot live with other fish, however, this is not true. I檝e already covered whether or not you can put male and female bettas together and I gave a nod to the fact that other species of fish can live in harmony with Bettas. So let get started and cover some of the most basic questions.

Can bettas live with other fish in the same tank?
Some of our Bettas are able to live in the community tank with other fish and snails. Others are simply too aggressive, even though the tank falls within appropriate guidelines, so they live separately. Male Bettas cannot live with other male Bettas, no matter how large the tank is.
What kind of fish can I put with a betta fish?
?Pygmy Corydoras Catfish / Cory Fish (Will need a few to socialize, however, they will stay away from your Betta Fish and will bottom feed.) ?Zebra Snail (most simple, will keep your tank clean and can live in small tanks)
Why are Betta fish so territorial?
This is because your Betta may actually act even more territorial if they are used to their tank. It is much easier to add a Betta to an established tank rather than other fish to a single Betta home. WHAT KINDS OF FISH SHOULD I STAY AWAY FROM?
Can a feeder Guppy live with a Betta?
Tank Size: 8-gallons or More. Feeder guppies are bred for food for larger fish and don have the bright coloring or long fins like the fancy guppy. This makes them an ideal fish to live with a betta. Guppies are also content living on their own, so adding one as a tank mate is easier than schooling fish.
