White Cloud Minnows With Female Betta?

I was wondering if I would be able to keep some white cloud mountain minnows with my female betta. I looked it up and a lot of websites said yes but others said that they were cold water fish so I'm a bit confused. Should I just set up a separate tank for them if I decide to get them?

There not temperature compatible. The betta needs warmer water. She may also want to attack them.

Hello!

I would not get WCM with your Betta. They are a cold water fish and a Betta is a tropical fish; so one of them is going to be miserable. Best to let them have their own tanks

Hope this helps and best of luck!

Yeah, WCMMs need temps below 75f and bettas need temps at least 78f. So, they're not temp compatible and shouldn't be kept together
