Update on sorority

So the worst thing that happened is all 4 of them are missing a few chunks of fins. Surprisingly Big momma isn't alpha female even though she is the brattiest of them all.

You running a four sister sorority there, Shaina? How long have you had them? How big is your tank?

I'm not about to criticize. I'm thinking of housing a smaller sorority myself. Maybe 3 or 4 in an overplanted 5g.

They are in a 29 gallon with fake plants, a goldfish, and three platies. They have two huge caves to hide in when stressed, and they are all petstore betta's. If you want to do a smaller sorority, I suggest a 10 gallon

...A goldfish? Aren't they cold water fish that need very high filtration?

xShainax your tank sounds overstocked, particularly with the goldfish. More filtration for sure and tons of plants.

Actually goldfish can live in higher temperatures and I have two filtration systemes running at the same time. I have had them in there for three months and he is happy.

You need at least a 10 gallon.
