I want to have bettas in my 50-gallon tank, which will consist of schools of fish.
Suppose I obtain a group of (maybe 4) female bettas and I have a shoal of 10 neon tetras in a 50-gallon tank. There are about 8 places for the fish to hide. Would they end up being compatible?
Suppose some of the tetras begin nipping one or a few of the bettas' fins? How should I resolve the situation? Would I have to get a new tank, which isn't an option, or would I release it back to a pond? What should I do? Can someone answer this from experience?
