wow.. So I have had my oldest betta for just about a month or so, yet I now have 4 males, 3 of which are very happy, & a Sorority of 6 Females that apepar to be doing great.

They do have a pretty fair amount of coverage as well though, as I did my homework before hand as I though a month ago that you couldnt have females togeather at all.

But I laughed because the articles say females really can't be kept together. One article said "people have claimed success" and another discouraged it altogether. Haha, so someone needs to tell my sorority they can't live together.
And yet we still have noobs coming on here and saying that they have a 2-female "sorority"...*le sigh*. And then us more knowledgeable members try to help them, and then they go off about how they've been fine for a whole 4 days. *facepalm*

I'm guessing I got pretty darn lucky with mine. 3 of them are the same color and none of them are from the same store of bought at the same time. :/

I have 2 girls who are almost identical, one girl who is not quite identical to them but close, and the rest are varying shades of pink/red with one poor teal girl who sticks out like a pretty thumb. When I first put the sorority together, the "twins" went at it like hellcats, with the slappy tails and everything. o.O Now they all luvs each other.

I asked Here Fishy Fishy Fishy for advice before putting my sorority together.

Yeah, I think my favorite was someone who had 5 girls in a 5 gallon. Siiiigh.

-___- oh dear. Peeps need to learn...fo' reals.
That's how my 3 girls were. They were smakin' each other for a couple of days and it eventually settled down. They still nip each other here and there, but no actua fights ever break out. :) I have tons of cover for them, but all 5 hang out with each other at the top. so weird.

....aaannnddd a Blue Jay almost flew into my apartment... *closes window*

I watched a youtube vid from ExpertVillage once about female sororities. LOL, they claimed that you can have multiple girls in a vase. xD The guy put like 4 -5 of them in this bare 2 gal. vase. I left a very unhappy comment. D:<

ExpertVillage...experts on what, I'd like to know.
I'm lucky. My girls all came from the same tank, travelled home in the same bag and the most aggression I've seen since getting them home? One girl flared at another, who ignored her. I don't even think they have a pecking order. Seriously, they think they are just tetras and should hang out in schools. I <3 my girls. =D So cute.

Ah, yes, i wanted to ask you guys, I'm getting 5 of my starting girls from the same tank at my LFS, should I get them seperate bags or just keep them in one for a short time?

Separate bags. They might do well in a big tank together but I think you take a risk with them all in a big bag. They may or may not do well in a bag together.
