Is a 10 gallon tank too big for a male betta?
Definitely not! A male betta would be very happy in a 10 gallon.
A 10 gallon is the best setup for a male betta! Bettas are one of the best fish for aquascapes since with there beautiful coloration they stand out in planted tanks!
Thanks for the reply! I had my male in a 5.5 for a few weeks but i put him in a 10 today and I wanted to make sure it was okay. He has different height plants because i read that helps
Also, can neon tetras live with bettas? Or should I leave him in the tank by himself?
Neons should be in a 20 gallon minimum but they aren't temp compatible Neons like low 70s while the betta like the high 70s
I wouldn't do it. They aren't temp compatible and neons need a minimum of 20 gallons. You might even see some aggression from the betta to the neon tetras, so I won't do it.
I have my betta in a 10, he's fine. I also agree, no neons with bettas.
