Follow the instructions on the bottle very carefully and completely. Usually you just need to measure out the liquid in a syringe and squirt it into the water, although smaller bottles may have a built-in dropper to make it easier. If you would prefer to use a dropper, QuICK Cure by Aquarium Products is a treatment with malachite green that I have had a lot of luck with. The medicine won't be able to kill the Ich while it's attached to your betta, so you must keep using the medicine even if you don't see Ich on your fish. When the Ich are free-swimming, the medicine will kill them.

Although many believe that bettas can only be housed by themselves because they'll "kill" anything alive in the tank, bettas CAN be housed with other fish/invertebrae. In fact, there are quite a few species that can successfully coexist with a betta. The general rule is that a betta can live with anything as long as it's So what about a male and female in the same tank? Unfortunately, they too can get into scuffles that could hurt the other fish in your aquarium. Therefore, Bettas are content with the most peaceful species of fish. Additionally, when choosing other fish to inhabit the tank with your Betta, ensure they enjoy or can adapt to the same . If a possible tankmate qualifies for all 4 conditions, then they should make great tankmates with a betta. Another important condition is the betta's personality. Becuase every betta has his or her own unique characteristics, whether or not a tankmates will peacfully live with the betta varies widely. An overly aggressive betta should only housed by itself while a shy/ peacful betta can possibly live with guppies or other colorful fish. However, bettas are solitary fish meaning they do best by themselves. That's how they live in the wild. Additionally, adding fish to a betta tank may cause the betta to become aggressive because it thinks that another fish is swimming over his/her territory. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't get your betta a tankmate. As long as your betta doesn't show any signs of distress or become aggressive, everything will be alright. It's up to the owner to decide whether or not to get a tankmate. Now, on to the common tankmates! Glass Catfish – This is an interesting fish because it derives its name from having a transparent appearance. A very docile fish, the Glass Catfish does best with other fish, which also includes the Betta. Please note: Bettas have varying personalities. You will find much conflicting information out there because Bettas can react differently depending on their surroundings. As a general rule, males do NOT go well together with males, and since Gourami fish resemble Bettas, exercise caution with this species. Rasboras – Naturally found in the Southeast Asian waters, this species is one of the best types of fish for a . As small fish with lengths at or less than two inches long, they eat all types of fish food and the environment they love is similar to the environment in which the Betta thrives as well.

Note: Exercise caution with Gouramis. I have seen them make great tank mates and I have also seen them get quite aggressive with bettas since they closely resemble bettas.
