It is not just a matter of having a large, planted tank. As ofl said, hers involved breeding them for many generations together. They are related. They were raised together. Her system probably took YEARS.

Most of the time it doesn't work out.

It either ends in the owner discovering they shouldn't do so or the fish kill each other.

Thanks for all the replies. I was just curious. I like bettas and just like to know all about them.

I don't plan to try it as an experiment. Nor do I suggest anyone try it.

Wow..Interesting, a friend of mine, just recently said, who has also been working with all fish for a long time, in excess of 10yrs, said he has sucessfully housed male bettas, as babies, or very young and kept close eye on them, larger tanks, 20 gals,or higher, up to 55 gals, and barely no probs, along with other compatible fish, and lots of plants and they don't establish dominance of any particular part of the tank, and always have room to run and hide if need be..don't know how true..but I guess with all that room, could be a possibility.

I agree with OFL. I think it takes years of experience to be able to do what she has done.

Years ago before I knew anything about Bettas, I put a Male Betta in with 4 Female Bettas and Cory Cats in my 20 Gallon tank. The Females would chase the Male every now and then without biting him, But the Male never bothered the Female Bettas. I wouldn't try it again now a days myself. My Male Betta I have now "Ace" is going to have a 5 Gallon all to himself. I just wouldn't want to risk my Bettas getting hurt and stressed out.
