Suitable Tank Mates for Betta Splendens

Here are a few suggestions. Please keep in mind that many bettas are different and some may get along fine with these fish where others will not. I have placed a next to my personal favorite tank mates. The African Dwarf Frog is an excellent choice as they breathe from the surface just like bettas and require no aeration.

 Mollies
 Cherry Barb
 Clown Loach
 Zebra Danio
 White Cloud Minnow
 Cory Cats (Corydoras)
 Cardinal/Neon Tetra
*
 Guppy*
 Bala Shark
 Platies
 Swordtails
 Plecostomus
 Ghost Shrimp
 African Dwarf Frog (NOT the Clawed Frog)

*Some Bettas have been known to eat these, others have not. 
 I have successfully kept many females and a male with them and I also have lost all of my guppies due to female bettas, so it varies.

Just keep in mind that bettas have long fins so keep away from any fin-nipping fish. I have heard of people keeping them with Angelfish, but I have heard many horror stories as well. When keeping female bettas in a tank together, remember to give them plenty of hiding places and plant life to hide in. Java Moss is a good choice for this.
