Question One sorority tank coming up!!!!

> Well as many of you know I was going to breed for the second time with a diff pair....(Cornealis+Penalipie). But of course they were to aggressive towards eachother! (torn fins)
So I have decided to use my empty 10 gallon as a sorority tank!

.I will be using sand for the bass
.Looking to rescue 6 younge Bettas
.2 cory cats.
.3 diff plants
.+decor

What else do you think would get along???

You can mix Marina in with the new ones. I think the most important thing is to introduce them at the same time so that no one gets a chance to claim territory first. Also, have plenty of hiding places and make sure you don't have less than 4 females to spread out the aggression. Keep a close eye on them for the first few days.

Hmmm.... so could it be possible for the Amazonian trio to share a tank? I tried to get Venus and Geshia to share a five gallon tank when I first got them. Venus wound up bullying Geshia and I seperated them, afraid that they might wind up fighting. Do you think I might have over reacted?

The Amazonian Trio consists of:
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 think a 5 gallon is a little small to try a sorority in. Ten gallons is the recommended size tank. They need a lot of room and plenty of hiding places. Also 4 females is the recommended minimum number of females according to everything I've read. You need more females to spread out the aggression. So it might work if you had a bigger tank and one more female.
