My old 20G is just crying and begging to be a sorority. I'm thinking maybe towards christmas I'll set it up. How many females could be in a 20G? Would 8 or 10 be a good number?

Before my 20 gal. "Diva" tank decided to spring a leak, I had 9 females in there with lots of plants & hidey holes and they all got along great.

One word of warning, though, don't fill the tank all the way up - I started with 10, but one jumped since I had the water too high.

Still a great post haha. I have a 9 female sorority in a 38 gallon tank. I have not had any problems as towards aggression. Probably because they have tons of room and places to hide from each other. They dont bother the danios or the cory catfish either. I firmly believe female bettas deserve as big a tank as you can get and friends! If you can of course that is.

I agree. I'm glad everyone is getting along so well. I think it's because of having lots of room and plenty of hiding places, like you said.

I think I'm going to start a sorority. I now have three lovely girls and I have an empty 15g. Four more females should be okay, I think. I'm going to start cycling the tank this week

Would six females be too much for a 10g? I already have five in there and they all seem to be getting along, and have plenty of hiding places. I hear that six is a good number for a sorority though.

I think 6 will be fine. Make sure they have plenty of hiding spots.

I'm thinking of setting up a sorority in my 15g and was wondering what are good live plants for one?

Talking Sorority Shots

Some pics of some of the girls in my sorority just hanging out at the top of the tank...

This is the 75gl..still in a tank this large you have to watch for the biters...I took one of mine out recently and she ended up being responsible for all the nipped fins in my tank, as the girls are recovering now that she is gone...

No matter the size or number, its all about watching them like hawks..making sure they can remain civil...usually its only a few that disrupt this...Ideally a mature and calm female should be the alpha...
