Can you put a betta fish and goldfish together in a tank

Report as

No. Beta fish are aggressive and do better in their own bowl. If you put them in together, one or both of them will most likely be dead by tomorrow.

No. My 1st Betta I ever got was put with a tank of goldfish and the goldfish ate its tail, causing him to die. That's right. The Betta was the one who got eaten. Guess he was more passive than most.

Bettas are able to be put with other passive fish, mostly it depends on the betta. My guppy fish and betta are fine together. But I wouldn't suggest a goldfish and a betta. those are less compatible

It depends on your Betta fish. Mine (Gilbert) is housed with a female Betta and a goldfish. He swims around happily, and he has no interest in either of them. Some Betta fish are more aggressive than my Gilbert.
