  • usually male betas will only fight other male betas but some are just nuts and will kill anything and everything if it can.

  • We have had a lot of experience with fish over the past few years. I have had 1 beta and put it in a variety of community fish, never did the beta fight the others. The only thing you would have to worry about is putting 2 beta's in with one another, they will fight till their death!

  • My beta fish only fought certain fish. I had him in a tank with about 6 other fish and he would chase them sometimes, but he never fluffed up or hurt any of them. But if I put my finger to the side of the tank he would try to attack it lol.

    They do well with other fish as long as they are non-aggressive.

  • Don't do it! The beta will kill and eat it, no matter what kind of fish it is!

  • ask at the pet store, some other kinds of fish will be fine. I know for sure you can't out 2 betas in a tank together or they will fight until one of them dies.

  • Beta's are fighting fish and will kill just about all fish you put in with it. I wouldnt take a chance.
