Male J floridae can be fin nippers.. but they get real aggressive if there is a female present... NOTE-- they were considered to be cichlids for a long time

fin nippers and bettas do not mix well of course...

just my opinion an d opinions are like--- well you know.. lol

ahh shooot.. that smart comment at end was directed more at me...

I have hear d folks say that they disagree with J floridae somtimes bad attitude... My experiences they were nippy but not too nasty except male with females or any fish too close to eggs or fry

It happens.. they vary in a couple breeding strategies as well.

I am interested.. do you have males or males and females...

cover??? would like to hear more

I have 1 male and 1 female right now, so far they just swim past each other without a problem, In this tank there are 4 female bettas and 1 male, I know, not a smart move but how will I know if I dont try, right. anyway the only agression in the tank is the female bettas to each other. the bettas are mom, dad and 3 daughters. I have pics in my albums*o2

diamond killis ( Adenia xenica) would be an attractive and hospitable addition...

the plants may well reduce any nipping activity down well...
the flag fish occur in densly vegetated swampy areas.. with little eye shot of other inhabitants.. so reducing their line of sight will aid in your endeavor for sure

Well here we are in January and everything is fine in the mix, Ive added 2 pencilfish and a couple guppies and everyone is doing great. they all come to the same corner of the tank at feeding time and eat together. The flags even tried spawning once. O yea, im thinking about a male and female german blue ram next, any opinions? please share, thanks
