Beta's and other fish
I few questions... I currently have my Beta in his own bowl (four gallons). I got a 20 gallon tank recently and I have six fish in it. A Rainbow Boesemani, a catfish clarias batrachus, two zebra danios and two tiger barbs. Can i put my beta in with these fish? Oh, and another question. I have had this beta (charley by the way) for about six months now. he used to be hyper and active all the time. Now he hardly eats, stays in one spot (either in his tree or on the bottom of the tank) all the time and he no longer blows bubble nets. Is this a problem? Should I be worried? Will putting him with other fish solve this? Oh and I was told that betas can't be put with other fish because the other fish will nip at their fins causing the beta to get sick? Is this the case? I don't want to loose my fish.
