What can i do?

I just bought 2 male killifish from my LPS they told me the 2 would be fine together as long as there are no female killifish so they should be good they dont seem to give eachother much attention.. but they seem to nip at my bettaĒs fins. I never seen them doing it but i can tell by his fins. I only have this one big tank where they are In and i really want to keep them they are verry need and full with personality so what can i do to prevent this ? Click image for larger version

Get a small tank for your betta or they will kill him. 3-5gallon is fine with filter and heater.

I know the feeling. Trust me... that's why I went with a 55g with female betta's in it. 😊

How many gallons?

It is better than being eaten bite by bite by the other fish. If they are Golden Wonder Killis, they can be aggressive. Not always but the one I adopted from someone moving was a little biter and it had to go. Then I found out that there can be this behavior and I believe also with the Fundulopanchax gardneri.

What can i do?

Would it be a option to add more plants in the aquarium so he can hide more and that way he can stay in?

I think not leave him to be bitten.

5G is a good size tank, though your dimensions are not perfect, it still gives the Betta so much room to swim around in. Lots of plants and places to lay in is ideal.
