Betta rutilans can be housed in pairs, species tanks, and community tanks. Pairs can be housed in a 5 gallon tank, groups should be housed in a 20 gallon tank or larger. Pairs should be given cover such as caves and plants. More

Mixed reports exist as to whether Betta rutilans can be maintained in multiple pairs or harems (one male alongside several females). Some keepers report that although some chasing and squabbling over territory occurs actual physical damage is rare. More
