Female Betta Sorority Help?
Hi there, I'm extremely new to the whole keeping females together-thing, and I'd like some help before I make any sort of mistake!
I'm very familiar with bettas, behaviors, care, etc. I bought myself a little, very young looking female yesterday (oct 20th) and I've heard a lot about "sororities" within female betta fish. It sounds great! So, of course, I'd love to try it out.
I've had a 10gal tank running for about 2 1/2 months. It had an algae eater and a bristle-nose Cory in there, keeping things going.
The female betta i have in there seems to be followed/occasionally nipped at by the algae eater, because of course, they're semi-agressive fish.
Do you think adding three to four more female bettas would over-crowd the tank, and create a waste problem? Would it distract the algae eater from picking on Rosie?
Thanks to all who reply!
