Hello everyone, I have a cycled 29 gallon tank with a smallish firemouth in it. My roomate just inherited a betta fish. I was curious as to whether the betta would survive with the firemouth. I also have a 5-gallon with a snail and some ghost shrimp in it, I know I could put the betta in that too. I was kind of hoping the betta would be alright with the firemouth, as it would make for an interesting and colorful combo though I have a feeling that isn't going to work. Thanks in advance!

I honestly don't know if the firemouth will see the betta as a threat or not - but I've had firemouths successfully kill tiger barbs I've placed in a 29 gallon FYI.

Don't put the betta in with the FM. You'll have a dead betta sooner or later. People go down this road constantly and the beta always gets victimized.
