Neon tetras, shrimp, snails, dwarf frogs, and a baby tang eel.

just got home from work to find our betta has gone to the big fish tank in the sky, poor little thing, seemed well this morning, wandering if the krib had anything to do with it, he can be a bully, had already decided to take him and the other krib back on sat, then will only have the tetras left

Ok what about this.
Have 6-8 blood fin tetras (so add 2-4 more of the ones you have)
Keep the Betta.
Add a school of cories for the bottom or a school of kuhlis.
You could have a second tetra school of 6 neons or cardinals.
That way the Betta stays.
hi thanks for the advice about what sort of fish to buy, have chatted with my daughter and the kribs will be going back to the shop this sat. unfortunately the betta died yesterday, it was fine in the morning bt by the time we got home that night he was upside down with a good bit of tail missing, seemed healthy, so think the angry krib may have had him. have orderd the test kit suggested here and will do a test before going and getting new fish, gunna get same sex guppies, (not sure how many is good) neons and maybe somthing else.

If u get rid of the kribs then u could go with a small school of pepper or panda corys. My kids luv ours. Theyre always active and amusing to watch. Either way the possibilities are endless so enjoy ur new aqua.

If you go with cories try and stick to the smaller varieties like pygmy or pandas. They also do better in schools snotty and get 4 at the very least but 6 would be much better.
