I am looking into fish that might work. Yeah, I saw that the Oscar is absolutely out of reach haha. I also saw a Knifefish on Petsmart's website that makes me wish I had a 75 gallon hahaha. But I am still more than happy with this gifted 20 gallon! Of course, I have a lot of work to do to get it cleaned and cycled before I can even think about getting my fish, but... the planning is so much fun!

So I'm starting to narrow down the fish that I might be putting in here... and a betta sorority is definitely still high on the list! How many female bettas can safely live in a 20 gallon sorority?

I thought you said 10 gallon?

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I measured it and discovered... my brother has gifted me a 20 gallon! I thought it was a 10 gallon, but I was incorrect. :) He didn't seem to remember how many gallons it held (it hasn't been used in about 5 years), so it was a happy little surprise!

Sorry for the confusion lol

Ten girls? O_O That's fantastic!! It's alright to mix tail-types among the sorority, right? I would love to get some crowntails, halfmoons, spade tails... ahhhh, how much fun!!

Can I maybe put 4 or 5 sorority girls in with a few other fish? Or do female bettas need to be kept only with other female bettas?

Yes, tail type doesn't matter. :) They can be with other fish so you choose.

That sounds really awesome! I am thinking of doing an ancient Rome theme in there, including this Colosseum ornament I saw in Petsmart last time I was there. And some nice live plants... java ferns, maybe? I don't know much about this hahaha

@Lebron - Yay, I'm so excited to get a group of girls together! I'm gonna try and mix up the tail types as much as possible! Haha maybe if Drago ever catches a glimpse of a female, he'll liven up a little bit. he's so daggone mellow hahaha

I think you can mix cory types and they will school together (Don't hold me on that unless someone else verifies). You could have 5-6 corys schooling the bottom of the tank and then your girls in the rest.
