If no video is posted, I would assume it didn't end well.

I don't think this person will post on this. They want to say "look what I can do and you can't" but this will NOT work with splendens

4) 4 corydoras minimum. They are schooling fish.

5) Shrimp are colony animals.

6) ADF like to be in a group IME.

7) Hormonal stress causing egg binding (long term) in the females due to constant contact with males.

And that's only what I can think of. Expect dead fish. THERE IS NO WAY THIS SETUP CAN SUCCEED. Be prepared to have to separate them.



what does egg binding mean????

I was wondering the same thing... I have a female in a divided tank with a male on the other side, and right now, they both seem to be fine, but I really hope it doesn't turn into a problem... I don't have any other way to house them, really.

I've honestly never had a female get egg bound. Some of my females (these are wild bettas before everyone jumps me) live in the tanks with males, and even when they haven't spawned for months they never get egg bound.

People always talk about females getting egg bound but I have never had it happen or seen any real proof of it happening.
