"Diluting" the Sorority?
Sorry I've been posting so much-
my 29 gallon sorority tank is set up; no bettas yet. The problem is, I only have 3 females to add, and I can't find more... the stores/suppliers didn't ship this week.
Q: can I "dilute" my girls with platys? "They" say I need 6-7 female bettas for a successful tank. I can't find the betta girls I want- should I add some platys to prevent bullying?
(I am saying platys b/c they seem to need the same temp as bettas; 78+, right? Fancy guppies would be attacked by the betta girls, plus they prefer cooler water; am I correct?)
4 bettas: Butch, 3-year-old violet male PK EE & 3 girls in a 30 gal sorority. I do not name the girls anymore! 1/2 of them die within a month.
30 gal: 9 Oto cats, 4 Ocellifer cats. Inverts: Cherry shrimp & 2 assasin snails.
10 gal.: Butch, his 5 oto cats, 3 assasin snails, and a few snails the assassins haven't caught.
