Wow, It looks like I'm not the only one who has that problem with pets shops too. Lol. As of my Sorority tank, well a few ripped fins, bulling, moments were my parents go "Now you know what it's like to be a parent of teens", several old tanks, and a devider later, I can now say that my fish have their own spaces and are doing much better.
It defeats the purpose of a sorority tank I guess, but my fish are now happy.

Venus: a normal Red and Bold beta
Trung The impressive purple.
Bodaciea, the acrobatic jumper and performer o_O
And Kozue the new pretty boy.
........and their hapless human slave, I mean owner, but she's not important....

I mean it! It was like I was the mother of five teenage daughters! Fortunately once everyone's all settled in and comfortable, and the fish inflicted injuries (my poor babies!) have heal (which they are doing very quickly) I'll be able to post pictures. ^_^

Well, some of my girls were small compared to the others, and I decided that a sorority tank with my budget at this point in time might no longer be worth it... I'm already broke. Lol.

I've done a little research as to why my tank didn't work, all my girls are brightly colored female bettas, which means that they are basically female bettas with a more male like aggression, and it's a gene that comes with the bright colors. So if you want to do a Sorority tank, make sure all your females are a brown color, they are the more docile.

Your not gonna breed again?

Torn fins are normal for breeding, missing scales as well.

I have no male fish to breed with. I'm called the Amazonian trio for a reason, because I tried to have a sorority tank when I first got three of the girls, now I have five.
