What! Why not... I think a 55, if properly stocked would be killer. Some cory cats, some sort of tetra, and a betta..awesome.. or get a few female bettas that be tight

The danios darting around might stress the betta but i can't say for sure.

It does depend on the betta. I have one in my 60g with my assorted community who does wonderfully(had him with other fish for going on 4 years now). Another is in my 30 with some peacock gobies and oto's. However, I have one betta who is not aggressive even to fish like guppies.. but he is so timid he gets too stressed to be with other fish. My crowntail, on the other hand, is basically a fish eater. I could tell within minutes that he had to get out pronto!

Fish are so funny.

"I am getting out of hand"
They are addictive!
I think "dragon" means that the scales on the face are more pronounced, as opposed to most bettas, whose scales farther back on the body sort of fade out toward the head which appears smoother.

Yeah, it seems like there's a lot of different descriptions of them, for sure. Yours makes more sense, though.

That may be the most amazing fish I've ever seen. It looks like it is made of copper. That rocks!
