Buds For (female) Betta

    Hi All,

    I have a female betta in a comfy planted 2.5 gallon tank in my office. She's by herself...and I'm *convinced* gets bored of watching me work.

    Do you think it would be safe/beneficial for her--and her potential tankmates--to move her to a 10 gallon planted nano tank? (The nano tank contains 2 male guppies, 7 pygmy cories, and 2 crystal shrimp.)

    I appreciate your feedback.​

    I would not suggest moving her to the 10 gallon because it is recommended that bettas not be with other fish unless in a tank 20 gallons or larger. If you think she looks bored you could get her a 5 or 10 gallon tank for herself. There would be more room for exploring!! :)

    I wouldn't put them with guppies as they may kill them. Any fish that looks similar shouldn't go with any male/female betta.
