My Sorority

I started with 3 ladies from PetCo and then 2 days ago
I received 6 girls bought from Chard56, a member of betta fish dot com
and a breeder. They live in a regular 20 gallon with 3 peppered
corys and 2 otos and a nerite snail. It's not a planted tank but all the
plants are real, I have moneywort, hornwort, java moss, anacharis and anubias.

All their photos are in my album if you are interested

Lemme guess...

The solid red & blues are from PTC? What is the stress lined female's true color?

I thought you were going to post pictures of the tank.

They all look nice and healthy. Always a fan of the deep colored ones.

What kind of food are you going to feed them?

So you have 9 Bettas, 2 Otos, & 3 corys in a 20g tank? IMO that seems overstocked. Did you or are you QTing the new girls? Did you add them all in at the same time? Keep an eye on your water parameters; ammonia, nitrites, nitrates. I don't know what kind of filtration you have but adding that many at one time can cause an ammonia spike.

It will be fine, I vac and do water changes. Surprising little chasing and nipping so far, I thought it would be more of a problem. The first 3 are all buddies and some of the 6 from Chard56 I think are sisters, so maybe that helps. As much as I love the boys, it's nice to see a tank full of pretty fish
