so i have two female Betta's, they're in separate tanks atm but i have a 15 gallon tank that's unoccupied at the moment. Who should i add in with them? i'd love to have an awesome communal tank, which will be all naturally decorated (driftwood, natural plants)
So any suggestions? im going to the fish depot tomorrow so lemme know!!!
Yeah, in the beginning of sororities, they always peck each other to establish an order in the group. With just two girls, one will be alpha and will constantly pick on the other girl to keep her dominance. It can get pretty bad. Only separate the females when serious damage is being done, or one of the girls has stress stripes (horizontal lines). A sorority can be fun :)
okay, back from petco, $50 later i got 5 plants, a drift wood and 4 more females. alls alright at the moment. though two of the females, the biggest ones are slightly picking on each other. they look like males but they have the egg spot. they have places to hide so im not worried, ill post pics in a min
The problem is, there will be more fighting with that little coverage. Do you have any fake plants? You could put those in there for now. Females have shorter fins, so plastic plants shouldn't be a problem.
