I can tell you what NOT to keep with a male Betta--you can keep just about anything with a female one, including another female Betta.
Don't keep goldfish with tropicals, and Bettas are tropicals. Goldfish need much colder water than tropicals, and goldfish are extremely dirty fish.
Don't keep any fin-nippers with Bettas, for obvious reasons.
Don't keep them with fish that can eat them--piranhas, Oscars, and the like. You could probably keep one with a small Oscar, but piranhas take bites out of their prey so they're permanently out.
And don't keep any other anabantids with them. Bettas will fight with any anabantid, which means a tank that contains a Betta can't have any Gouramis in it.
Other than that, you can keep pretty much anything you like. And you can keep them in any size tank you like--my Betta is in a 55-gallon aquarium. He thinks he's in heaven.Answermy son has a fish tank and he has a lot of different fish with his Siamese fighting fish. you don't want to put another male with it or any type of small, fancy fish, like guppies with it.
Hi, I wondered the same question aswell until I decided, like the previous answer, to go with guppies. Bettas are labyrinth fish, they have adapted a new organ to breath air, like gouramis. They need small, peaceful tropical tank mates that won't nip at their fins--- barbs are NOT a good choice. Any kind of guppy(male or female), neon tetras(jumbo), zebra danios, and gouramis. I currently have in my tank 1 betta(male), 1 zebra danio, 2 guppies, 1 glass fish(sold out of the same trop. tank as guppies, though he isn't eating currently, so I'm not positive on that one), and one snail(to eat the algae. Goldfish are another poor choice because they make too much ammonia in the tank for Betta's.
Siamese Fighting Fish fight because most of the fish are territorial. If another fish/Siamese Fighting Fish comes in their territory, the Siamese Fighting Fish will strike and start fighting until one surrenders, is almost dead, or is dead. This also happens when Siamese Fighting Fish are mating. Sometimes the female/male is too old or too young and if they are put together, they will start fighting. When mating, the female has to hide in plants or behind rocks so that the male will not nip on her fins.yes because they smell
