Is it okay to mix.....

Is it okay to mix giant bettas with regular size bettas in a sorority?
Tank is a 55 gallon with plenty hiding spaces.

I don't know what are you talking about! Me and the voices inside my head will prove you
wrong!

I was offered some giants not too long ago and when I asked this same question I was told that the giants will eventually try to eat the regular sized ones.

10 HM, 3 HMPK, 5 HMPK fry
8 German Blue Ram, 5 Green Dragon BNP, 4 Albino BNP, 4 Calico BNP, 6 Red BNP, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 2 ADF, 7 Peppered Cories, & 6 Tiger Endlers + Fry
12 full time tanks, 4 NPT, 6 QT/Breeders

It really depends on the bettas' personalities. Fishalities? Anywho, I'd give it a go, just keep a watchful eye on them.

I used to have several giant females in with my standard sized females and they were always fine. In fact, I found my giant females were actually often more docile than their smaller counterparts.

I never had a giant female try and eat or attack any of the other females.

The success of a sorority really comes down to the invididual personality of the females in question.

i'd say go for it, but have enough individual tanks on standby to get them out in case of an emergency.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
