Some of you have been asking us through email and I have received the question for quite a number of time on where you can purchase affordable yet quality Bettas.
If a possible tankmate qualifies for all 4 conditions, then they should make great tankmates with a betta. Snails make great tankmates with a betta because of its hard shell which protects it from curious bettas maybe even hungry bettas.
Although most ghost shrimp are sold as live food for larger fish such as cichlids, they make great pets and tankmates. Similar to cories, loaches are bottom feeders and basically look like a bigger version of cories. I recommend khuli loaches(4"), dwarf loaches(2.5"), hillsteam loaches(3"), and zebra loaches(4").
Otocinclus Catfish, or otos for short, have similar needs as cories but are much more harder to acclimate since mainly because most of them are caught from the wild and have not been bred in an aquarium environment. White clouds are similar to neon tetras in size and coloration but are more peaceful, hardy, and enjoy cooler water.
However, the temperature of the aquarium would need to be in the upper 70's (78F) to accomodate the bettas needs and the white cloud's needs. Fish listed here are suitable to live with a betta with no problems but should be a second priority to the fish listed above.
These tetras share the same water conditions as bettas, low pH, high temp, and soft water. Additionally, tetras enjoy being in schools so 5+ in a 10gallon tank is necessary for healthy tetras.
If you really want to have guppies with your betta, your best bet is to get feeder guppies.
One difference between rasboras and tetras is that rasboras are more peaceful than tetras. The only condition where keeping a common pleco with a betta is even possible, let alone recommended, is if the tank is 30+ gallons, and that's before they're fully grown.
There are certain requirements you must consider before thinking about housing guppies with a betta. Although housing fancy guppies with bettas has been successfully done many times, it doesn't necessarily mean that this combination will work for everyone. Mollies, as with all livebearers like guppies and platies, enjoy hard water with a high pH, the opposite of what a betta prefers.
Swordtails have the same cons as the other three livebearers, plus other characteristics that make them unappealing as tankmates. As they get older, they become more aggressive and seem to enjoy the taste of the slime coat of fish. Unless you're trying to make a female sorority tank (which needs at least 5 females), or having a divided tank, don't even think about trying to house bettas together.
In their homeland, whoever wins takes the territory and the loser swims away to live another day. Not only are cichlids highly aggresive, but they live best in water conditions that are opposite than those of a betta. Many people think that putting a goldfish and a betta is a great idea since both are believed to be able to live in a bowl.
Goldfish are coldwater fish (enjoy the low 60's) and bettas are warmwater fish (enjoy the low 80's). Goldfish are extremely messy so the minimal size tank necessary is 20 gallons for one goldfish. Tiger barbs, or as I call them, fins shredders, are also an extremey bad choice for a tankmate. Because they are in the same family, bettas and gourami's are more likely to fight each other.
Well, aside from the obvious answer which is Thailand (you can buy them there for an extremely cheap price), you can try sites like this one. Because frogs look nothing like bettas (obviously), there's little to chance of a fight to occur. Additionally, because their bodies are entirley clear, bettas have a hard time seeing them so they cause any harm. If you had a choice between ghost shrimp and red cherry shrimp, definitely choose the red cherry shrimp. Because cories are bottom feeders while bettas swim at the top levels of the tank, there will rarely be any confrontations regarding territory. Additionally, similar to the red cherry shrimp, white clouds are easy to breed and are believed to not eat their young (the betta might though).
Although really inexspensive, they are dull colored so they won't look as vibrant as fancy guppies. Because common plecos can get up to 2 feet in length and produce plenty of waste, a tank of that size is extremely necessary. Since the average fishkeeper doesn't follow this rule and keeps their betta and goldfish(es) in a 10 gallon, nitrates go through the roof within a few days. With a stronger filtration system, the stronger the current, and the more stressed the betta. If you put a tiger barb with a betta, your garuanteed to get your betta's fins ripped into confetti by the next day or your money back.


We have also added the Fish Experts Questions and Answers in regards to the most common questions we receive on our email.
Becuase every betta has his or her own unique characteristics, whether or not a tankmates will peacfully live with the betta varies widely. For this reason, you could need more than a 2.5 gallon tank to house a betta with an apples snail. Additionally, cories are a peaceful bottom feeder, unlike chinese algae eaters which don't even eat algae but instead on the slime coat of its tankmates. Their hardiness makes them an excellent fish for a beginner and their temperment makes them a great tankmate for a betta.
Unless you really want to house a pleco and betta together and are willing to get a tank 30+ gallons, then I don't recommend getting a common pleco. Usually, in the wild where they live in thousands of gallons of water fights are not to the death as many people believe. The loser is unable to escape and the winner continues the beating until the loser finally dies a painful death. Try swimming in a heated pool at 80 degrees and then jumping into the ocean that's 60 degrees and you'll see how big a difference that is; quite a shock for both fishes.
One inch of ice in 3 days !!!It wasreal windy most of the day and I spent more time in the EskimoQuick Fish 3.The two holes in the shelter provided some steady action for perch and bluegills. Because they only get up to an inch long, they produce very little to no waste meaning you can have 10 shrimp per gallon. You can definitely get other types of plecos that stay small, such as clown plecos, bristlenose, and pit bull plecos.
Even a divided tank is dangerous since bettas are super athletic and can jump over a divider that's 1 inch above the surface.
The death lull kicked in around1230 and fishing picked back up again at 3pm.I landed the usual residents of the lake-- a few trout, afew nice crappies, perch and gills. However, all snails are highly sensitive to copper so any medicine containing copper cannot be used in a tank with snails (or any invertebrate for that matter).
A better choice would be to have a hospital tank and put the sick betta there to treat and leave the snails in the main tank. Additionally, the armor plating on these algae eaters will protect themselves from any betta aggression.
Plenty ofpanfish with a few perch hitting the 9-inch mark and a crappie thatwas almost 10 inches.I caught trout sporadically throughout the day, ending with 9. Teddy told me the lake is completed covered and the ice might be about 1 inch orso.Teddy has patrolled and lived next toAntietam Lakealmostall his life and he knows the lake.
There isplenty of rainfall predicted for that area.Most of the fish sitting in the estuary should be entering the river as I type this.
Anglers tend to give you space, the scenery is beautiful and the Osprey's always put on a show. Wednesday was spent in the upper fly zone and wasslow in the morning but pretty consistent in the afternoon.
Ialso landed a smallmouth bass, a few small brown trout, afew small rainbows (steelhead smolts ?), a fallfishand a baby AtlanticSalmon.
The Mohawk egg pattern accounted for many smaller fish and the salmon sized Light Spruce fly produced a few hookups.
Last years--One Day Trip-- hot fly,Olive bugger with White marabou tail and redcrystal flash also received plenty of attention and did account for 2 fish.
The guyI was fishing withused plenty of flies with smaller bucktail flies doing most of the damage. He didhook-up with a few fish while usingmy Death Stonefly, landing one nice Coho.I can tell you this---the next few weeks will provide some serious action. There are fish in the system at this moment and with the water release at 1800 CFS and the rain.
The pool we were fishing was loaded with suckers and chubs and I did see a few trout and a couple of nice sized smallmouth bass.
Any questions as to what to tie, just shoot me an email or use the Contact 2Bonthewater page. All that cold water coming from a quarry and the creek itself in that area is near lifeless. The bridge is now being painted a Hunter Green color.Most of the creeks in the OleyValley are really low. Even with the rain, the creeks remain very low.A I have a trip scheduled to the Salmon River planned inlate September thanks to Jack.
Without Jack's kindness and awesomeness, I would not be going salmon fishing.A I have startedtyingflies for the upcoming salmon trip. Zoe competed in a National Beauty pageant and won honorable mention in the beauty competition (FYI -- Zoe wears no make-up, fake hairor fake teethand she competes in the natural division--she is my little girl and I would never DRESS HER UP like all those crazy folks you see on TV).
We dressed as fishermen, answered a question about each other and then Zoe did some fly casting on stage.
Zoe was crowned Little Queen when she won the Pennsylvania state pageant back in 2006 while competing in a Sunburst pageant. There are plenty of out of the way smaller streams that are teeming with Smallmouths, Carp and a variety of Panfish.
Perkiomen Creek -- air temp 89 degrees, checked the temperature at two spots, temps were 70 and 69 degrees -- Taken between 415-425 pmA Manatawny Creek -- air temp was 88 degrees, checked the temperature at three spots, temps were 76 degrees at Red Covered Bridge, 74 degrees above TIKI bar and 76 degrees below the Rt.


This heatwave has made most ofthe local trout streams too warm to fishfor the catch and release angler. Maiden Creek below Ontelaunee Lake should provide anglers with some fishthat are willing to bite. You can find Carp, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bassand a wide assortment of panfish to keep you busy.
Take some cold water with you !!!Your best way to keep the water cool is to freeze a bottle or two of water the night before you head out.
As the day heats up, the water bottles will slowly melt, leaving you with nice cold waterto drink throughout the day. I fished for 30-minutes on Manatawny and landed 2 wild browns on a tan caddis dry fly in the area where the water temp was 68 degrees. Temperature wise, if it is 90 degrees outside, pretty sure most, if not all of the local trout waters will be at 70 degrees or higher. We don't wantto kill the trout.The trout that survive through the summer will offerus great fishing in the fall. I have not made a trip to the Schuylkill River as of yet, but I'd bet the house that the smallie action should be pretty darn good. You can also takeyour watercraft outbefore Epler atCross Keys Road or at Muhlenburg Township park which is below the PFBC Epler Access. There is little room to fish, unless you don't mind walking the shoreline that is covered with all types of vegetation, including Poison Ivy.
Pleny of fish to be caught in this body of water, that is if you can get to them.A Manatawny Creek fished OK.
This stretch used to provide some very nice smallmouth action, but the last few trips here have been poor.
Switched to a spent spinner pattern and hooked up twice--snapped one off and landed a nice stocker brown. The water is up from recent rains inthe valley, but the stream was clear and in perfect condition. The Schuylkill River and a few tribs shouldprovide any cat or carp angler with a few bites each nite. Channel catfish prefer dead baits andsmaller live bait, while the Flatheads prefer larger live bait.
Carp will eatsmaller live bait including minnows andcrayfish along with the standard fare of homemade MUSH bait or whole kernel corn.The bottom line is--It doesn't really matter what bait you areusing. But, by now it was pitch black and it was raining pretty good and thelightning made it look like the 4th of July came early.I managed to land 2 fish on my emerger pattern androll 2 other trout. Started out at the mouth of Sacony Creek but there was some serious bridge work going on, so I left after a few casts. Caught some nice bluegills, onebrown trout, pumpkinseeds, green sunfish, agolden shiner and I almost hooked into a very nice largemouth bass. Kids and water mean plenty of noise,lots of splashing and lots offun.Normally, 750pm is about the timethe sulphurs start popping off.
I saw some Iso's and huge stoneflies coming off and flying around.I caught a trophy Bluegill, no kidding check out the picture, almost 9 inches. I left my headlamp in the truck so I had to walkout before it got too dark and miss the potential spinner fall. I then drove to another stretch of the crick and hooked up a few times fishing a brown spent spinner.
I lost them at the bank.A Fish the mornings with a brown or white spent spinner and you might get a few takes on the surface. My favorite is a "John's Spring Creek Pupa" tied in size 18 and 20 (Trout Flies of The East--page 93).
I caught two brookies on a CDC sulphur dry fly and the rest of the fish were caught with nymphs.
What an amazing fish, especially on a 2 wt bamboo fly rod with a fly reel that is dated to the 1930's or 1940's. What a specimen.He looked like a submarine swimming in the water !!My first impression of the leviathan is that it was a wild fish. Tonights fishing provided a mixed bag of fish, a few smallwild brown trout, along with a few stocker browns, stockerrainbows and the brook trout. I topped it all off with a visit to Ted's house to show off the bamboo fly rod and talk shop. It was about 40 degrees and raining.I didroll a larger fish on a midge, but aside from that, it was a very slow night. Cast down and across and hop the flies upoff the bottom with quick upward lifts of the fly rod.The fish would really strike hard.
I still have not figured out whyone day I will catch all browns, one day I will catch all rainbows and some days, you will catch a little of everything.
