I wouldn't mind a sorority but have no space for a 10 gallon tank and my landlady (mother) wouldn't like it. lol I would have to have it cycled.

If your still getting sand try to pick up the white sand, it is sooo good looking. I just picked some up and it makes my tank look like one of those fancy saltwater tanks.

I was trying to get a picture but the light reflecting of the sand blinds my camera. But its really nice in real life. Now just some plants and driftwood and I can have me some females.

Hows your sorority coming Crowntail?

Well, I can no longer say I'm the Amazonian trio, I now have five female fish and I'm trying to make a Sorority tank work.
But I've encountered a few problems.
One problem is that my white crown tail Geshia was hurt a over five months ago in an incident where she leaped out of her glass while I was cleaning her tank and her fins were torn. She no longer looks like a crown tail and her back fin healed together. She acted fine when she was in her own tank, but she got picked on in the new sorority tank.
Hypolita has always been a small fish, which I blamed on her past housing and times were I feared she wasn't getting enough to eat. I thought a Sorority tank would be an eficent way to solve my housing problems with her tank.
But I'm wondering if I had made a mistake.
I got two new female bettas at a local pet store and these girls were not only cheap, but huge! One green, another red and blue. The big girls, Venus is on the big side, have begun picking on Geshia and Hypolita, the Big Green one espceially. Currently I have the smaller ones seperated in to a five gallon hospital tank after discovering the bullying and ripped fins. *Hypolita got her tail fin ripped T_T* Both are currently hiding from the other, or avoid contact with the other at the moment, but I'm watching both carefully.
Venus also has battle scars, two holes in her anal fin, but other wise she is holding her own with new comers, or seems to at least. The green one is obviously her rival, both keep nugding and nipping at each other, but it's not as bad as when Hypolita was in the sorority tank.
Have I made a huge mistake?

There IS going to be some nipping and chasing while they are establishing a pecking order.But I don't know how long its supposed to last. I think the bigger ones are always going to pick on the smaller ones.It seems like everyone's sorority plans aren't working out so good right now.

other tanks aren't working either?
Geshia is now flaring at Hypolita, apparently she's recovered from being bullied by bigger fish. My poor Hypolita just can't get a break. She has allways been small, so I wind up worring about her alot. Should I give both tanks twelve hours, or should I seperate them all now? even if I don't have enough tanks?
