I have a quick (hopefully) question. Today I saw a Betta I actually wanted! Can I put a Betta with my Halequins, cory's and oto's? I do have plants and it's 30x18 tank

Assuming splendens, I would keep an eye (and a cound) on the harlequins, it may be fine, it might not.

Should be fine, but like said, you need to keep an eye on things.

The problem I've had keeping a male betta or a group of females in a community setting is, they tend to over eat given the chance to.

Yeah, that's labeled splendens. It's a hybrid, really, that's been line bred to have long fins and color variations.

Rasboras don't have teeth in the front of their mouths like tetras & some others do, they can't do much. I've only read of nippy harleys a couple times ever & I was skeptical then.
