I don't know if I sound like a total idiot or not but I see you have two tall plants and no lid. I love my lid since it keeps debree out (I have three doggys) and the girls in. If you were able to put a lid on there you could also add another gallon or two of water it looks like. May help with the little bit of extra swimming room. Ignore me everybody if I sound goofy please I was just thinking.
Thank you for the advice, you definitely don't sound goofy. I have put some aluminum foil over the top for a lid (just until I can afford to buy a real one) and added more water.

I have the biter in a "betta condo' (without the dividers in). I'll keep her there for a week and then reintroduce her. Thanks for the advice everyone!

When a tank is decorated as heavily as that, i can see having 6 or 7 girls would work safely.
Very nice tank!
Good luck with her.
If she is still aggressive, you can put her back in isolation for another week. I had to do it three times with one big female i got. Now she is a happy member of the sorority.

Betta-less at the moment :(

My aggressive girl continued to be aggressive after a week in the betta condo. I took her back to petco today and traded her for a different fish.

I'm sorry to hear that. Is the new fish another girl? If so, how is she doing?

Yes, its another girl. She is floating in her cup in the sorority tank for now. She flared at the other girls at first but she has calmed down now. Hopefully she is a better fit for my sorority.
