Hello, I'm thinking about getting a twenty gallon but I'd like to know what would be better. A 20gal regular tank or a 20gal long tank. One more question: how many females might I be able to house in a 20gal?
I have a 29 long. I like the long, because bettas prefer shallow and long, over deep and narrow.
in a 20, you could go with 4-14 I'd say. Just remember, every time you add a couple girls you'll need to take extra steps so they don't get mauled. I have 4, going to be 5, to be put back into the 29 =D I prefer the long tanks for another reason: more ground room for decor and plants!! Means, denser and makes it more fun
Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.
You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.
Very nice tanks :) I wish I had an example to go off of on how to properly set up a tank made for a sorority. I know lots of hiding spaces but does that mean a lot of plants or a lot of decorations that can be used as caves?
Plants to break the line of sight- so they can't zoom across the tank chasing each other without bumping into something. This will decrease fights.. Caves, girls don't seem to be very fond of caves, some use them, some don't :D
taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
