Ok quick question
I have a 20 gallon tank that I think will be ready for fish in a few days (I just checked the Nitrate, Nitrite, Ammonia, and pH, and all are looking pretty good so far). I’d absolutely love to get a betta, but I was wondering if they can have tank mates, and if so, what makes a good tank mate.
I’ve read that it often depends on the betta’s personality, but they can be kept with some tetras, and certain bottom feeders, like mystery snails and otos. I know other bettas are always a no-go. And while I’m not quite sure if I want tank mates for a betta yet, if I were to get them, would it be better to add them before or after the betta?
