    Male or female betta?

  3. Kenny777Well Known MemberMember

    Cories need to be in groups 6+

  4. Souvik SarkarNew MemberMember

    male betta..

    I would not recommend keeping a betta fish with danios, as they are usually extremely active, nippy, and they enjoy chasing. Unless the tank is very heavily planted go with more tetras or rasboras instead.

    if i put 6 panda cory then it is ok or not?
  7. DylanMWell Known MemberMember

    You have a 68 or so gallon tank, I'm pretty sure you could get away with a lot more panda cories if they are going to be your only bottom feeder, but a school of 6 will be fine.

    You could do more than that maybe 10 Cory Cats with your size tank

    I wouldn't do it because there would be some temp issues if you do so. The betta would need warmer water than the neon tetras, platies, and panda cories. Also, what type of danios?
  10. BottomDwellerFishlore VIPMember

    Bettas need warmer water than most of those fish
    Bettas 78-82f
    Neon tetras 68-75f
    Danios 65-75f
    Guppies 68-80f
    Platies 68-76f
    Swordtails 70-76f
    Mollies 70-78f
    Panda cories 68-75f

    Edit AquaticKeeper beat me to it :)

    What about Peacock Gudgeons or honey Gouramis instead?
  12. DylanMWell Known MemberMember

    No gouramis with betta fish. Bettas are very closely related to most gouramis, and might see them as other bettas.

    No I meant the OP should try Gouramis or peacock gudgeons I should've been clearer
