If you'd like more fish, maybe you could split it in half for another male?
I would hold off on the sorority.
Forgive me if I'm wrong, or just being nosy, but isn't that over stocked? I thought 3 ADF alone would need 10 gallons because of the bioload. I know snails are dirty for their size and I thought the same was true for frogs.
If I'm completely wrong then ignore me. I've been researching ADF (before getting any
) so they can be in a third tank as a community all by themselves. XD
I don't really do community tanks with betta fish and I had a bad experience with a divided tank a few years ago. My current set up is Luigi and Snowy in their own 5 gallon tanks, so I'm clearly biased against sororities and tank mates when it comes to aggressive fish. In fact, my vote is other. I say toss Bruce into the 10 gallon solo so he can own the place. Maybe add a snail or two as algae cleaning servants that do his bidding or risk getting eaten as punishment.
