I haven't kept up with this thread so maybe this was covered:

Has anyone done this? Since most babies are females, I was thinking of making a "baby sorority". Of course I would remove any males as soon as they started looking like males. The plan is to buy 6-8 baby bettas and put them in a 15 gallon. No other fish, just a snail, sponge over filter intake. What do you think?

I think you should try it! I have been really wanting to buy another baby to put in my sorority since the first one I (accidently) added has been doing so well (plus it ended up being a female so win win). If I see a double tail I'm going to buy it and cross my fingers it's a female.

I'd try it if I had a big enough tank for a sorority...it might make them less aggressive towards one another in the future too.

He could be cold!!!..make sure ur tank is up to temp!

I don't know how to post multiple photos from my iPad so I'll have to do baby pics one comment at a time.

When I brought the poor little guy home. He was see through & so tiny it scared me.

Here he is one week later. The little bit of color only showed with the camera flash.

He/she is looking great, nice improvement. Looks like they have a tinge of green coming in!

Viva, I'm very excited about the color. It just started show under the regular light today & I finally can't see any of his internal organs at all. He was in bad shape when I got him & the other babies there were dead. :(

So far there's no egg spot & here he is trying to flare at my camera...so I'm guessing a boy right now or a very feisty female.
