Cool! I'm actually considering putting my docile male betta in my community tank of peaceful fish.
The only thing stopping me is I'm trying to figure out how to make sure the betta gets food when the others are so much faster than he.
Let us know how it goes!
Heh don't be so sure. I had to remove a Betta from my catfish tank cause he wouldn't stop eating their food.
The easiest way to ensure he gets his food is to hand feed him, either with tweezers or your fingers.
They seen to eat together fine. The betta finds the food first but the platies get up there as soon as they see him eating
What are you feeding? Plats and Bettas need very different diets. Bettas need more meat-based foods while Plats need a veggie-based diet.
Sorry to hear it didn't work out, but I'm very glad to hear you removed him as soon as you saw a problem.I had to take the betta out because I added 2 new platies and he was nipping at them
