I have to say that I'm not surprised. Please do not attempt this again.

Heck, even the only time they really interact in the wild is during territorial disputes and spawning. I wouldn't bother doing it again. It will end the same. And once they've been separated, it'll get harder to put them back together.
Dude. Just stop doing it. I mean seriously.
I don't even believe you actually did it, you just wanted attention, tbh.

+1. Wild splendens are less aggressive, and they can swim away and escape the other male. A bit different then cramming a bunch in a tank.

I totally agree. How long did it take you to get all of those fish in there? I started my 10 gallon a month ago, and all I have been able to put in there are 2 platys.

And I was worried MY tank was overstocked! Are all of those other fish still in there? That's a lot of fishies in one tank.

I think you should really separate the bettas (male and female). I have had good luck with two guppies if you are determined to get tankmates... Or keep the ADF in there with him. Or snails are always a default. But all that other fish action is going to stress them both out.

If all those other fish are in that 10g, you should divvy them out a bit more.

That's just my opinion of course.

Yes far to many fish. I agree they are trying to show off. Wouldn't be surprised if they did do this though. Some people are ignorant.

NEVER put males and females together. It is just asking for trouble. IMO, males seem happier when they are by themselves.
