The only thing to keep in a 5 gallon with a betta is probably ghost shrimp or maybe a snail.

16 Gallon-4 Corys, 3 Endler's, 5 Celestial Pearl Danios
10 Gallon: Male King Betta-Kilo
5 Gallon: Male Marble HM-Logan
5 Gallon: Dwarf Puffer-Huey
5 Gallon: Male VT-Tango

Hey, good to see another Canadian and from Ontario! Currently, I have a sorority as well, I found the more the better, and the bigger tank the better. I used to have a 10 gallon but it was a "pond like" tank, only 4 inches deep but 3 feet long. The females (8) were always fighting and trying to dominate, but one, (magma) was always queen..

I recently upgraded and now run a 75 gallon sorority....the girls NEVER fight, I have witnessed one fin nip towards a smaller one, so i keep roughly the same sizes. I think this is also due to the stronger current. I have herd bettas prefer still water with not much water flow, however, IMO I believe that by exposing the females to a variety of conditions provides positive benefits to their growth and development, as well as general well being.

I usually shut off the filters when I feed for an hour and give them time to just float. When the filters run, the girls will line up to take turns flying through the jetstream of the power heads, then swim back through the current...they must love it, because there is so many calm areas in the tank....

Love to see some pics!

No vaygirl on his signature it says he doesn't have any bettas yet but i was just throwing around suggestions for a regular side tank just to be occupied and admired but if you are going to have bettas in there slash off the guppies and platties and you could use some neons (but only use neons for a sorority)

bettas are very picky when it comes to tank mates and all bettas are different!!:)

The results are in!

I was answering that question. Just wanna make sure he doesn't cram a new five gallon full of fish. We all know how that can go.

Maybe we can move this discussion over to shemetz's other thread here:

5 gallon tank, beta and.............

so we don't clutter up Miyko's thread

Cool sounds good! Also, you can only add 2 more because there should only be 4-6 in a ten gallon:)
