they are normally ok with other fish to be honest dan but othdr fish can be bugger's with them especially the likes of guppys and endlers. my endler woudnlt leave the fins of the betta alone. its coz they r jealous of their fins. and what size is ur BN dan ? any what speices/colour? a common brown ?

Yeah BN seems to be a common brown, hes about 6inches long.

Iv got a 4ft tank so I think that will help the Betta, i'll ask the pet shop if I can return him should they not get on with him.

were u gettin him ? carr farm , pulton road , waterworld or andy's ? they all should take him pack depending on the fin nippage. if the fins r propa stredded (which they will afta a whole night) then they wont take him back. what i sould do is do u have a breeder/fish trap ? the clear vented boxes that float in the tank or clip to the side ? id stick him in that over night so they get used to having him around. then release him the next day at a time were u can keep an on him for a few hours. then he should be ok hopefully but if not and the pet shop u got him from wont take him back just fone andys aquatics or carr farm and say av got a male betta will u let me swap him for another fish / credit.

If you put the fish you want in your tank all at the same time they get to know were they swim in line?
when you add new fish to tank the fighting starts
I know is hard to do that but you will have a good communal fishtank smile
