I have been trying to get a sorority going I had one female for the longest time and when I introduced the two new females to the tank they kept picking on my first female. Her fins starting ripping so I put her in a one gallon tank to heal. The two new ones chased each other around but never did damamge to each other. I put my first female back in the tank and history repeated itself. Took out the one I thought was the aggresor (also wondering if she is really a he) went out and did some shopping today ended up bringing home two more females. I put them in the tank and not even 15 minutes went by before the 2nd and 3rd female started fighting my newest one. She is breathing heavily now so I put her back in the cup that came from Petco. I can go out and buy a couple one gallon tanks and can keep them all seperated or should I keep trying to house them in my 20 gallon tank. I of course would do their water changes and I know one gallon is not idea but I cant afford a bunch of 2-5 gallon tanks. any suggestions?
P.S. any ideas on how to control the addiction of buying more bettas?? I couldnt help myself. There was this drop dead gorgeous white and pastel green male VT I wanted sssoooooo bad. Talk about grabby hands!!! lol
