    Male Betta with Red Tailed Shark

    This is not perminant but right now I have a male betta fish, red tailed shark, and a few other small passive fish in a 10 gallon tank. (The RTS is still a baby and will be moved out within a few months or so when I get a 40 gallon tank). I'm worried about both the betta and the RTS as the RTS...
