What fish would be good tankmates for a Betta.

Anyone? I would have him in a 46 Gallon tank. Just not sure about tank mates.

I have raised bettas with all kinds of schooling fish like tetras and cory cats with no issues. Stay away from fin nippers like tiger barbs.

That's one lucky betta in such a large tank!

And fancy bettas themselves sometimes will be nippy,. Especially ones with flowing fins like fancy guppies. That said, they can be very good community fish, but as mentioned, they don't stand up well to fast, aggressive fish.

Your tanks aren't too small. Your fish are too big.
