I have five girls in a 27 litre tank, and I perform 30% water changes every 3 days to maintain water quality. I've since removed the crypts at the front and put in some anubias, and am looking at a lowish-light ground cover.

Between my milfoil and riccia the girls have to really work at it if they want to chase a specific fish around.







I have my suspicions regarding the gender of my blue marble female, but as long as there's no fighting it can remain in the sorority.

People on here, and me, half had suspicions on my blue marbed girl too! She flared the most, too. Weird.... Seems to do a lot of the chasing (mostly at first) then again, It was her tank.
But, same with you, as long as they're not nipping and fighting, she's staying in there.

Heck yeah! :) It looks more natural, helps with cycling, and wont scrape the crap outta our fish's delicate fins. It makes our bettas feel at home! Oooo plus some plants like my rotela ( cant spell ) grows off if you clip them and they grow big so its like getting more plants for free . My peacock fern is actually from Thailand :P

Do you have to add CO2 or anything to keep your plants healthy? I'm trying to start a planted sorority and I'm concerned I'm going to kill all my plants!
