Is Betta fish suitable for a comunity tank?
I Am starting 25g planted community tank. Plan so far is to fill it with 7-8 cardinal tetras, around 10 red cherry shrimps, 5 panda corrys or other small corrys and few hatchet fish. As a main "attraction" I was going to buy couple of dwarf gouramies but recently I read a lot of bad opinions about them. People complain about them getting sick and dying very quickly. Bad breed or something. In meantime I thought about Betta fish instead of gourami. I know my son would love that Question: is it ok to have Betta with community fish like tetras, hatchet fish and corrys? I don't know much about bettas and I always see them being alone in a tank. Is it possible to have two of them in a community tank? Would that be safe? If not, what other fish you suggest (around 3 inches big and some nice colors that can live in a group of two or three)
Thanks for advise.
Solution to pollution is dilution.
