14 gallon sorority

I've upgraded my sorority from a 7.5 gallon (I know you will all say it's too small but they got on fine and had no ripped fins, no agression etc. it was well planted); anyway I've put them in a 14 gallon tank; I'm wondering how many girls I can fit in there comfortably?

I have 6 in a 10 gallon. But for yours, I would still stick with 6 females. I think mine would be better if it was just a bit bigger.

I'd give your girls around 2 gallons for each, so about 7 bettas in all :)

Well my girls got along for a month...but I have just had to separate them. They were babies when I got them and grew up into b*tchy women...

They were in a 20 gallon...a couple passed away, not sure why. Two for sure had dropsy regardless of clean water. One may have been attacked by the others as one moment she was fine the next dead.

Be prepared for anything...especially mood swings!

I have a 14 gallon sorority with 7 girls and I am happy with the amount of room they have.

Thanks :). My girls (except the latest) one have been together a while :). The latest one is a bit anti-social. She was a loner in the tank I got her from and she seems to be a loner in my sorority. I might remove her and put her alone if she still seems to be alone :)
