New sorority

Hello everyone! I started a 15 gallon female betta sorority. I have 4 bettas thinking about getting maybe 1 or 2 more... They are all established pretty much and the alpha has risen. I was wondering what some additional tank mates would be good? I like neon tetras but I heard they sometimes don't work... Any ideas!?

I think you are already well stocked. Stick to the bettas!

I agree. Maybe some Otocinclus or some Mystery Snails, but with that many females it can be touch and go. I find that with mine the schooling fish or the snails have to be there first and they're fine, but that's just me. I think you're set with your girls!

I would add another two girls. In terms of tankmates, that is dependent on your water paramenters (ph and hardness).

I agree with Bombalurina, plus more females spread out any potential agression.I really like your tank!

You're never to young to be to knowledgeable.
