Sorority tips?

I have 5 bettas (quarantining). I'm going to put together a sorority.

My dad said people at work said they will all kill each other. HE EVEN SAID," TELL ME WHEN YOU INTRODUCE THEM SO I CAN WATCH THEM KILL EACHOTHER "

:O


:O

That shows how wonderful of a person my dad is. -_-
I told him that a lot of people have sororities and I tried explaining to him and he said he doesn't care, then asked me if I knew anyone that did this. I tol him people online and he said he doesn't care because I don't know te people online.

Now I'm worried because I know they nip at first and hes going to make it stressful and say I told you so, when they nip

Sorry this is more of a rant coz I'm rly mad & stressed right now

put them all in together at once. Make sure its heavily planted and there are lots of hidey holes. They will nip until a hierarchic is formed but then that should all go away. Unless there is a boy n the mix :(

How long does it take to form a hierarchy? I'd like to introduce them and not tell my dad for at least a couple days xD cos he's making me stress over this and doubt myself

a couple of days, if that. As long as you have all girls, a heavily planted tank and a few hidey holes there shouldn't be any reason for doubt

MY girls found the hierarchy in about 1 hour I was watching them the whole time so I can tend to the wounded it they didn't stop. It will take a while but they will get there. You can definitely tell if one is not suited for the sorority life because they will flat out attack and wont flare those girls will not stop until the other girls are dead and should be held in their own tanks. I've only ever had one like this so don't worry too much. Just be sure when you introduce them that you have a lot of time that you can observe and tend to your fish.
