Bettasareawesome, lbf keeps wild (peaceful) bettas, and splendens are very unpredictable... It's not worth the risk.

And Shirly, honestly, when lives are at risk, feelings should come second. Talk to her first? Try to do it as gently as possible?

Edit: Lbf, are you talking about splendens?

Yeah. I was talking about splendens in that instance.



This one at the front was the male I used to have in my sorority.

What are some important things I'd need to know for a sorority? Ive only kept bettas alone, well no thats not true my current betta has been with platys, neon tetras, a pleco, a golden loach, and a small algea eating fish that reminds me of those zebra tetras, not to mention pond snails, evil.

EDIT: and no, its not like I was going to put a male in it, I just found it curios.

Most important thing, is lots and lots of cover. This is very important. You want it to be as difficult as possible for a female to see or get from one end of the tank to the other. This goes a long way towards preventing weaker females from being chased around.

Think 90% of your tank covered with either live or fake plants.

Also, at least 4-5 females for a 10 gallon tank. Don't go with three or less because once they mature and start getting aggressive you can run into issues.

I have a thread stickied in the care part of the forum that covers a lot of points in more detail.

*hugs* Shirley. In laws. But I do agree that it IS your business if she's driving drunk. I mean, your husband may not want to have a confrontation (totally understandable) but how would he feel if she killed someone?

It's everybody's moral duty to report this type of thing if they know it's happening.

Thanks LittleBetta that really helped, although it will probably be a little while before I start a sorority because my 10 gallon currently has more than just my betta girl in it.

That does sound like a lot of fun, Laki. I'd love to learn more about Newfoundland.
