Betta question

    If I get a 5 gallon Betta tank, would I need a bottom feeder? Would it get along with a stingray pleco?

    Bettas normally don't play well with others especially in 5g's.
    You might be able to get away with a few pygmy cories but keep a close eye on them and have a tank ready in case there's any aggression.
    I googled stingray pleco, they get too big for a 5g. The profile said they should have at least 20g.

    bettas , by nature, dont like anything with them in their tanks..sometimes the occasional betta will tolerate an otto or cory fish, but most of the time thats only going to last so long..they can turn at anytime a 5g, id go with just the betta and find out how much they love humans!:;tmntlucy:;nw
