29 gal sorority tank

Here is my 29 gallon sorority tank, has about 10 or so female bettas crowns, veiltails, and a double tail in there gargamel the 6 inch rainbow shark, he makes a great referee for when the girls start trying to have wwf tryouts in the tank and a stingray sucker/pleco

Ty this tank took a bit of time and effort to get it this way, lots of trial and error and luck, oh wait and that one thing, called money, but I am very happy/proud of it

that hillstream loach (the "stingray sucker") isn't really a good fit for a sorority...they prefer water that's a good deal cooler than what bettas need, and need a strong current to oxygenate the water, which is also very disturbing to most bettas.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

+1, was just about to say the same thing.

I love the 3-way piping you have covered with the pebbles. Do the girls use it much?

but +1 to what hallyx said. the hillstream loach isn't a pleco and will not dig in the substrate ^_^
it's kind of like an oto. it needs cool water and prefer to be in groups. maybe you can set up a separate tank for him? These guys usually ate fussy eaters and you will want try blanched veggies.
