Hey your an Ohioan too!
I had one male betta before in a 30 gallon hex community tank with some mollies and a platty but sadly he ended up getting sick and passing away (I wasn't experienced with Betta nor experienced with dealing with sick fishies. This was over a year ago.
So in other words no this will be my first sorority and I've been doing a lot of research on it so I'm pretty excited especially now that I have a 30g. I slept on it and now I think I'm just going to keep my set up how it is which is my male in the 10 gallon and my female in the 5 gallon until I can get these three other females from a lady on here in which Ill switch the male and female.
While I do this I'm going to slowly set up my 30 gallon in which I want to do real plants. When I am finally finished and satisfied with my 30g I will then of course switch my females into the 30 gallon and my male into the 10 gallon and add on from there (well I'll add more females when I switch)
And yeah born and raised in good ole' NEohio.
