Considering this, what kinds of fish can live with a Betta?
Consider these fish and other aquatic animals to put with bettas:
- Cory catfish.
- Neon and ember tetras.
- Ghost shrimp.
- African dwarf frogs.
- Kuhli loaches.
Also, how do bettas kill other fish? Bettas will commonly thrash at each other hoping to damage each other's scales, tails or gills. It's usually the infections that kill the betta fish and not the actual fight. Male bettas will initiate a fight by fanning out their fins and flaring (or puffing out) their gills making themselves look larger.
Secondly, do betta fish get lonely?
Betta fish are naturally territorial and should not be housed with any other betta fish because they will fight and injure each other, often resulting in death. They are unlikely to get lonely in their tank; however, if they are in a small tank, they may get bored.
Can 2 female betta fish live together?
Female bettas do not fight each other like males do, so they could very well share the same tank, but half a gallon is way too small. If you can, go for a 1o or 15 gallons tank where you can keep 3 or 4 females together and even add a male betta.
