King Bettas

Hi. Are King Bettas any more aggressive than the “regular” size Bettas?  Do their tank mates need to be larger than the usual nano fish so as not to get eaten. What about Cherry Shrimp with them? 
Are there Betta types that are more likely to be chill in a community tank? 
thank you

The internet has many different answers to Betta questions. It is difficult to find reliable intel. I would assume “aggressive” for King Bettas unless proven otherwise.

For tank mates… choose large enough species that will not fit in their mouth. Neocaridina are probably a “no” with King Bettas. It is advisable to always add your Betta _last_ to any community setup.

I liked my Betta imbellis. I found them peaceful…

More peaceful… but they were jumpers!

Honestly, I think every betta is completely different. They seem to chill out with age, but holy smokes some of them are insaneo when they’re young!😂 I don’t think Kings are necessarily more aggressive than other bettas, but you never know. I really would like to try tank mates for my half moon but I’m afraid to test the waters lol
