That's why research is so important when deciding on fish.
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.
