How many gallons is your tank?
10 Gallons

How many lovely betta ladies do you have?

I Have had 6 at most. Currently I have 5.

What other fish do you house with them?
I have kept Dalamation Mollies, Rosey Red Minnows, Ottos, and Ghost Shrimp.

Currently, I am just housing the 5 Bettas, with possibly 1 ghost shrimp left, after I moved i only saw i remaining.

Water changes:
One weekly water changes of 30% or 3 gallons. Have had a few random deaths, no idea why.... I saved one though once i saw her taking on the same symptoms as the other 2 that had died. Now she is healed up and back in as happy as a clam :D

Here are a few pics of the sorority after just starting it up, this was months and months ago, it is MUCH different now, only real plants, and only the cave on the left and the big statue on the right. I cant wait to get updated pics, but i am still unpacking from my move last monday.

























The whole tank, as of months ago.

I used to have one but as my females got to be around a year old they ripped each other to shreds.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

1stAqarium: you should probably get 2-3 more female bettas. 2 females will eventually fight with each other because they are battling for dominance.

Oh really? I didn't know that :(
What is a good number to have? They have been fine so far, when/why do they start fighting?

4-5 is a good number to have. As I said above, two will constantly battle for dominance. If you have 5 the aggression will be spread out.
