Betta Compatability/General Bio Load question

first up, liveaquaria.com says that bettas are compatable with all my fish, but lists glass fish as misc fish and said to be cautious.

has anyone noticed behavior between bettas and glass fish and snails?

also, are there any charts explaining bio loads for certain fish? id love to add more neons or platies, but wanna know what i can safely do.

How big is your tank? That will help us answer part of your question. Glass cats can be difficult to acclimate into the aquarium and need to be kept with at least 4-6 to be at their best. As far as behavior, you probably wouldn't have a problem between the two species as long as you have enough glass cats together.

Glassfish are brackish, AFAIK.

aquariumfish.net doesnt list them as needing salt, so i dunno

wiki says the brackish thing is a misconception

i cant find any website that says they require brackish water.


anyways, back to the general questions at hand, how does one determine the bioload of fish?
