Yes as long as its a female betta they will be fine

in order for a betta to live with glo fish there needs to be at least 6 glo fish. they also need to be in the tank for at least an hour before the betta is put in the tank.

Yes, they are community fish!

Glo fish are Zebra Danios that have been injected with a jellyfish gene to make them glow. They can mix with most Tetras OK.

No. Glo fish are freshwater organisms and lobsters are saltwater organisms. And if they could live in the same water, one eats the other.

You could get a betta fish but if you get one it would have to be in a different tank than any other fish (as many people know the betta would eat ANY other fish). You could get African Chichlids they are really pretty and social, neon tetras,glo fish.

male betas fight other fish, period. only the females are safe!AnswerI find bettas to be a good community fish IF there are no fin-nippers, other longfinned fish, or other anabantids in the aquarium. Bettas will fight with long-finned fish and anabantids of any breed, and fin-nippers will attack the Betta. Also, don't put the Betta in the tank with a fish that can eat it. I had to house a Betta in a tank full of Jack Dempseys. No damage to Betta or Jack Dempseys resulted, and Dempseys are aggressive predators. As to the original question...the only reason I am going to say no is it's a five-gallon aquarium, which is REAL small. Glo-fish are just genetically modified zebra danios, which get along well with bettas.AnswerSome answers are really misleading. Sure, certain betta can be psycho killers that will kill everything in the same aquarium.However, when you put a betta and a bunch of Glo-fish in the same tank, the problem will not come from the Betta.Glo-fish are genetically engineered Zebra Danio. They can be aggressive Fin-nippers ! Betta's long fin will make perfect target!On the top of that, Zebra Danios are 5x faster than a Betta at top speed. Slow moving Beta will never be able to catch a Zebra Danio.To decrease Glo-fish aggression, a school of 6 or more is recommended. Even that will not decrease the aggression to 0.A 5 gallon aquarium is also too small for Zebra Danios. Since they need room to move around a lot at high speed. Small sized aquarium will increase their aggression as well. They are good school fish and add lots of movement to your aquarium. They are nice to have, you just need a big enough aquarium and be careful about them being around other fish with long-fin.

No, the Betta is an aggressive fish breed. It will fight anything that moves and breathes. It will shred up small fish with their tiny, sharp teeth. It is best to keep a Betta in a separate tank.You can only keep a Betta with other fish when the other fish are much larger than the Betta. Then the Betta will be intimidated and it won't dare touch the larger fish.

Forget about them being "glo fish". That is just SPIN. Glo fish are a genetically altered common fish made to glow artificially. They are in reality Zebra Danios (Brachydanio rerio). The females are slightly larger and plumper in the tummy than the males which are more slim lined.

Glo fish don't have gravid spots. Gravid spots are actually the many eyes of the unborn babies of certain live bearing fish like guppies, mollies, and platies.

A little less longer than regular goldfish.

Glo Fish are genetically modified fish that can be bright green, fluorescent yellow and bright red. They are all zebrafish.

Only live bearing fish get pregnant and Glo fish being a type of danio are egg layers therefore the eggs are fertilized and develop outside the fish's body. So no Glo fish is ever going to get pregnant

Glo fish are genetically changed Zebra Danios. They would be eaten by any of the larger cichlids such as Oscars.

Glofish are Zebra Danios that have been genetically altered in a laboritory. They are a tropical species and will live OK with Guppies

Well, glo fish are just zebra danios geneticly engeneered. So most fish will go with them. Anything that is not aggressive or a lot bigger than them should be fine.

Male and female Bettas are peaceful fish and can live separately in a community tank with other fish. However,the males should not be placed with fish that have long showy fins like angels. Females can only be introduced for breeding then should be moved to another tank. They love to swim so please don't force them to live in a cramped bowl.AnswerMale betas can do fine with other fish, however the other fish cannot have long fins (I have had mine live in a tank with a variety from fiddler crabs, glo-fish, tetras, ghost cat fish, all fish that did not have long fins). Fish with long fins will create the same issues as putting a male beta with another male and fighting can result Female betas can live fine with other fish. Sometimes they can be aggressive with other females but that is not that common, especially if in a large tank.Mixing a male with female there can be some aggression when the male is interested in the female, this can lead to breeding (which can result in you having up to 500 betta fish to separate and care for!). Make sure there is plenty of room and hiding places so that the female can escape male advances. Betas prefer calm water, though I have placed in tanks with slow water circulation and with several areas with very little circulation allowing them to be comfortable and not stressed.Long story short: If tank has fish that do not have long fins, that there is plenty of room/space, and water that is not too swift, betas should thrive fine.

Same food a regular glo-fish eats (the mother or father). I recommend fish flakes because it gives the fish a diet and you don't have to feed them ALL the time, but if they are huge, i recommend blood worms or shrimp.

candy names? Sugar? Fruit?

hundreds, maybe even thousands

no they are not,I have them with other fish that shouldn't be with fin nippers and they didn't take a nibble!

how long does it take for them to lay eggs

I'm not an expert on how many fish to keep in a certain amount of gallons, but I know that's too small. After doing a lot of research on the internet, your best bet is 1 male betta with two snails or a ghost shrimp at most in that kind of scenario. No fish can really thrive in 1 gallon tanks (you need at least a 2.5 gallon tank for 1 fish, or so I've heard). Would you rather live in a big house or a 1-room apartment?On the bright side, I've owned fish (betta) for almost 2 years now, and they seem to live for a fairly long time. But like I said, you'll definitely need more room.

They have been injected with a bit of jellyfish DNA to make them glo. They are banned from sale in many countries that have a conscience when it comes to interfering with nature. (As are Parrot Cichlids)

If you mean are they genetically meddled with like the "glo fish" then the answer is no. They were selectively bred to have the colours they have.
