Default Betta and Neons not getting along

wrote in message
I started with 4 neons and 1 male betta in a 5G tank. After about 2

2 left. He seems more and more agressive towards them as he chases them

feed him more, but he goes about looking for food and chasing the

Not only are 2 neons missing, I cannot find any remnants of them at
all. Is it possible that he ate the entire neon?

Bettas will eat neons...plain and simple. I have had that happen some 40
years ago.
