That bettas dislike living in an actual tank and feel more at home in a 0.25 gallon vase as they live in small pools in the wild.-[store] aquarium expert

"Yeah a few Red Belly Piranhas will be fine in a 55g tank, with guppies, mollies and platies". I actually laughed when an employee at a LFS told me this....and she was the manager!!!!

No no, not small pools. They live in mud puddles. And they prefer dirty water unheated & uncirculated as it is closer to their natural habitat. ~heard at nearly every bloody place that sells them!

My friend kept her betta in a vase but it was a HUGE vase with plants and a heater and she did alot of water changes. So I guess that was okay. I think the vase was like 3-4gallons.

Two full grown mollies will do great in a 10g tank with four other fish!
