What fish can live with bettas?

+2 votes
I always see bettas on their own in pet stores. Is there any fish that they can live with or do they need to be on their own. What about other bettas?

In spite of their original name, "Japanese fighting fish", betas can share the acquarium with some other fish. They do fight with their own kind. Bottom feeders such as Brishtlenose Plecos, Neon Tetras and Cory Catfish are good choices. Just make sure your beta has at least 5 gallons of water space for himself.
