My stocking for my 10 gallon includes a golden wonder kilifish, two mollys and one lytrail molly, a rosy red minnow, an otocinclus catfish and a male betta fish(and some bladder snails because I like them). My scape is done with real wood (mostly for the Otto) with lots of hiding places. I wanted a betta for the tank for two reasons. To add some color to the tank (as all fish are golden-ish in color) and to act as the centerpeice fish. I have noticed the betta targeting and chasing the other fish, and the rosy red minnow will sometimes do the same. But I never noticed them actually inflict any harm, until I came home yesterday and noticed that one of my mollys had a good chunk of its tail fin missing. I'm guessing it was the betta fish. I want to know if I should remove the betta or if there is something else I can do to resolve the problem because I really would like a betta in the tank. If I do need to remove it would it be alright if I got a female betta instead?
