Well Dang, No More Excuses Now.
So I went to petsmart today to see if they had gotten any new ghost shrimp and chatted with the fish person, who was surprisingly knowledgeable on bettas (though everything she told me i already knew from here :P).
Anyways, I was with my friends and they asked to see the crabs, so the lady shifted the monster ladder out of the way and lo and behold, they had a tank of female bettas together. They were in pretty nice condition, fins were a little tattered but im assuming that was from having them in a bare tank. All looked healthy, but very stressed.
I was slightly frustrated since I had called them a week before and they said they didnt even carry females anymore :I
Now the only reason Ive been putting off getting a sorority was because I wanted to play it as safe as possible and get fish that were already housed together, now that I've found some (and totally have fallen in love with one of them) I dont have an excuse anymore 8D
So next monday Ill be getting a tank and all of the girls in there (there were 3 plus another one they had housed with 20+ neon tetras, poor thing)
And now, the whole point of my thread :P
Whats the smallest tank I can house a sorority in? Would 10 gallons be ok? How many can go in 10 gallons? I want to get as many as my tank can comfortably hold to spread out the aggression.
I know it has to be heavily covered :P
Plus any tips you could throw my way would be great, I know pretty much the basics on a sororities from reading the threads on here already ^^
