I was watching my new sorority of betta girls last night and it was actually pretty funny!
One of the girls had been in the tank for about a week, but when the 4 new girls were added she was immediately submissive.
The smallest girl is actually pretty tough! I caught her stealing food from the "alpha" girl and taking off with it.
The alpha girl swims around flaring at all the other girls, who usually swim away..other than one who will flare back and stare at her for a bit before swimming away.
Such personalities for little fish!
And my shy boy FINALLY stopped being so shy... I swapped him from his 2.5 gallon to a 1 gallon and he immediately perked up and was non-stop flaring all night! At me, at the fish in the tank beside him..
When I accidentally bumped the tank though, he swam into his hiding spot
