JDragon's 55 Gallon Sorority

I finally decided to create a journal for my sorority tank.
Specs/Stocking:
55 Gallons -
Ramshorn Snails,
1 Female Apple Snail
11 Female Bettas,
1 Rainbow Shark,
1 Albino Bristlenose Pleco,
1 Regular Bristlenose Pleco, and
4 Albino Corydoras.


Plants:
Rotala Indica Bunches x2
Wisteria Bunches x2
Red Ludwigia Bunches x2
Hygrophilia x3
Anubias Coffeefolia x2
Anubias Barteri x1
Anubias Barteri Nana x1
Java Fern x3
Jungle Val x3
Corkscrew Jungle Val x2
Marble Queen Sword x2

Water Sprite x5+
Frogbit x70+
Java Moss

And my husband brought home two Borneo Ferns that I am closely monitoring until they start going... Then to be removed. Too bad, I like the look.

Anyways. I have yet to name any of the girls aside from the red girl I affectionately call Lil' Red. Not original, but I like it.

Pictures galore:

Edit: We bought the last blue/black/red girl with a bad caudal. I had her in the breeder until she was not being dragged down and had obvious ne growth. There is little to no aggression at feeding time and everyone typically gets the same amount.

Looks great! I love sororities. Once I can get my males situated and get another tank so they call have more room, then hopefully my boyfriend won't mind a sorority ;)

Your females are so cute :)

Feeding time. They will group up and I make sure everyone eats just enough or at least not more than one pellet more than I think they need if they're sneaky enough to get it... No noticeable aggression even during feeding time. Just occassional chasing. I even see them group around on their own.

Also... the WHOLE surface is covered in frogbit. Will have to figure out shipping cost and post on the classifieds. I had to put some in my boy's tank to make feeding easier...

Alright.. Two more girls going in the mix once they come in... I have been getting rid of some frogbit from my classifieds post. Also... Don't mind the blue female I have that has stress stripes... She has had them ever since I got her. They seem to be permanent?
I also added a long tube bubbler to the back of the tank to help the cories breathe lighter. Everyone is breathing easier now and I constantly see the girls playing in the bubbles. I swear it's on purpose because they will ride up, then swim back down and do the same again. Shark has noticeably grown. Still little to no aggression, more like follow the leader. Girls still seem intimidated of him/her.

Anyways... Pictures of the new girls.

Thanks. And I see them come "visit" us on the left side while we're sitting/laying in bed. Other than feeding time on the right near the filter, the bed side is the favorite hangout. Plants have been growing in a lot.

Thanks! If you were closer, I could sell you from some of my spawn. We might be able to work it out as long as it's not like canadian customs.
