And when summer is over, you can bring it inside and fill it with fish. :)

I wanna do 8 girls in a 10 gallon.. even though half the forum says that's too much.
Or.. try that whole male in a sorority thing in a larger tank.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Olympia, if you did the whole betta community, you'd definitely need bigger than a 10.

I had 8 girls in a 10gal for a time. Right now I have 7. As long as the girls are peaceful, there's plenty of hiding places, and your filter is up to it, it's fine.

EDIT:
Elizabeth, That'd be pretty cool though, wouldn't it?

Yea. I was thinking that a 20 gallon long would be better if there was a male. But I'd probably just get a 10 gallon and do a simple densely planted overpacked sorority. Just imagine.. walking out of petsmart with 7 betta girls. xD


Ugh.. I got really excited when I saw "crowntail plakat" but this fish looks nasty.. and for $30?

My girls are pretty peaceful. They really only flare when I add a new member, but theres really no attacking. The most aggresive is Midna. And she, of course, is tied for the second biggest and extremely fat -_-

Edit: Olympia, I've walked out with 3 before. Many strange looks as I was sitting on a ledge outside petco, texting, with 3 fish and fish food.

I've seen some CT plakats that are simply gorgeous but that guy does look a little . . . not right. The ones I've seen have slight CT spiking in the caudal but not on any of the other fins.

Haha, good luck finding seven suitable girls at once. If I tried to do that at my Petsmart, I'd end up with a sorority full of red cambodians. That's all they ever seem to carry.

EDIT: Diablo,

All these sorority talk makes me want to have one... First the snails and the plants, now this. I really need to get out of this thread. xD But I can't.

I'll give you a gold star if you can eat a single Balut.

Check this thread out if you want a betta to cuddle with you. This is Jrf456's thread.

I love red cambodians. And just general Cambodians. Actually, since Babycakes died, I'm in the market for a new blue Cambo......and I do need a new filter pad for my Emporer 280.......and I have room for 3 more girls.....I believe a trip to petco is in order!

Edit: That CT's tail is too short for the rest of its fins.....some arsehole probably cut its tail and allowed the spikes to grow back.
