14 gallon betta mates?

Yes I've kept Bettas in a community tank before. Looking for fresh ideas.

This one is at work -- a little positive PR for the betta, I hope (look how happy, interesting, and healthy when not kept in a tiny betta cube!)

The LFS is The Wet Spot, where I can get pretty much anything. Home

Neons are so common, and so often accused of stressing Bettas, I'm not so interested. But just about anything else. I admit the coloring of the neons (or maybe cardinals) compliments this guy well. His fins show iridescent blue in the light, the markings are red.

I have my Betta in a 10 with harlequin rasbora and they get along fine.

Any of the 3 "pygmy" corys are great. If you want normal Cory behavior go with C. Habrosus. They are also more active when you don't have a large school.

Maybe some pencil fish? I've never tried it but it seems like it could work.

I've used pygmy cories, panda cories, embers, head and tail light tetras, harlequin rasbora, and emerald eye rasbora with success in my betta community tanks.
