My Betta Sorority Journal!

So I thought I would start a journal about the setting up and running of my sorority. Last night I cleaned out my 30 gallon that previously held 6 comets that I was growing up for my neighbors pond, the comets have left that tank and I decided to turn it into a sorority.

Last night I gravel vaccumed the tank, did a 50% water change and let it run empty over night, turned up the heat, its now at 76 degrees. Today I'm going to be going to petco to pick up the first set of females. I plan on getting 5 females today and then next week I will get a few more. I haven't decided what a good number of females would be in a 30 gallon, maybe 15?

Here's the tank, its a 30 gallon bowfront, and I will update later when I get the females and they are all settled in!!

Some new pictures of the girls!! They're still settling in so the pics aren't the best but they're doing well so far!! The big blue female is definitely the alpha, so far all fins are intact and there really isnt any fighting going on. Every once in awhile the red veiltail tries to challenge the big blue girl (they all really need names, haha) but backs down pretty quickly!

So anyway... pictures!

They look so much nicer in the tank than in those cups! Sounds like you chose a good group. Good luck with the sorority!

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows
