Adding another Betta

I have one female CT Betta. She is in a 1.5 gallon tank with a filter for 1-3 gallons. She had just moved into her new tank yesterday, but i have had her for three weeks in a much smaller tank. And she has a castle in it that she adores. I was just wondering that if i should get another female CT in there with her, but I am afraid she will not like the new comer in her new tank and messing with her castle. Should i add another Betta with her or will she get mad? And is her tank to small? I will post pictures asap.

Females should only live together in a sorority.If 2 females live together, one will dominate the other one and bully it to death. A 1.5 gallon is only big enough for one betta.

Thanks for the help. I was also wondering if is normal for her to make a bubble nest. Before I moved her she had one.

My females blow bubbles like crazy! Probably because of Dahl and PonyBoy sharing their tank.

Usually, since females are smaller, a 1.5 should be okay. Normally we recommend at least 2.5 gallons per betta. If you want females yo live together, you need at least 10 gallons and 4 females to spread out the aggression.


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

Yes. It said on her container, and I will also post a photo of her asap.

I also forgot to say that her old tank did not have a filter.

I got her from petco

I found something in my little girls tank just now. It looks brown and its too big to be poop. But I think she does look less bloated. But she wasn't sick or anything.Does anyone have any idea of what it could be?
