    So i have read that bettas can have tank mates. I want to start a sorority of bettas, but can you add other tank mates to the sorority?? Regardless of whether you can or not, i still want some tank mates for my bettas but would the other tank mates need to be males, females or both?. I deffinitely dont want ghost shrimp (shrimp just creep me out for some reason)....but im looking for something that theres rarely any casualties. Most of my bettas are rescue bettas so i dont want something thats going to bully them or hurt them. I want a peaceful tank.

    Slow swimming duller colored fish seem the best fit. Or bottom dwellers. Tank size would dictate whats appropriate.

    This depends on the tank size. I only keep bottom dwellers with bettas, bristle nose plecos, kuhli loaches, cory doras snails, shrimp etc.

    My betta is inseparable from her Dalmatian molly partner. Every fish is different.
