Some questions

Ok, I think I have decided to use my 30 gallon for a sorority. How many females should I put in there? Also my hubby loves the neon tetras so I was wondering if they would be ok with female bettas. I like the red platys or some red mollys so could they be ok with tetras and female bettas? My hubby says we need something other than just bettas because he likes other fish too. So now I just need to figure out what I can put together and how many in a 30 gallon. What would be the perfect mix??

Most danios, barbs, and tetras would work out fine. I would try to keep twice as many of them as female bettas, though. With the girls themselves, the more you have the better. You need at least 4, and each additional one means that any aggression is that much more diluted.

Female bettas are must faster than males, so I might think that neons could get picked on more than a slightly larger tetra would. Cardinals have the same might want to consider them.

Also, here's a shameless plug for corys!

Make sure you have enough filtration!

Good luck, and have fun!
