The annoying glass mirrors:
Hello, recently I had a few posts about my 55 gallon aquarium. I introduced my male betta Re to the tank, the only problem was it really bugged him since the tank has inside mirrors that cover the whole glass and the biggest problem is I cannot remove the mirrors since they are in the inside.
Anyways, I wanted to know if I were to get 4 female bettas [Maybe more, I do not want to over stock.] 6 tetras and an African dwarf frog. Will the female bettas be bothered by the mirror like Ren or will they be fine because they are in a group?
And how many fish do you recommend me getting for a 55 gallon aquarium, this is my moms tank and because I didn't get her anything for her birthday, I want to make it special she use to be a good fish keeper until when we were replacing our counters with marble counters we use to have a HUGE hexagon aquarium that had these two beautiful cat fish type of sharks, tetras, and so much more that lived since I was small Anyways the aquarium would stay on the counter until one day the guys who were putting the new counter in, the old one split in half the table and old counter, the fish went flying, we were missing our biggest cat fish shark, and the rest didn't make it after a few days, it was sad. Ether way, I want to make it special when we visited Pet Habitat to get Moons new 3 gallon tank my mom looked at the Betta and had her eye on a few veil tails and was saying and pointing "Wow how beautiful is this little boy." She wanted one, I knew she did I wanted her to buy it but we already spent over $200 and are 55 gallon tank was small, I want to get her a blue female and maybe a few other colors, most likely blues since my mom loves blue and loved them.
1. Will 4 females [maybe more] be bothered by the inside mirrors?
2. How many females and tank mates are recommended and how many to get for a 55 gallon tank?
3. If I get 4 female betta's with the SAME color will this effect them, causing them to fight or nothing really will happen. I ask this question because it's like them looking in a mirror.
4. Will the mirrors stress the females out and make it look like the amount of them doubled?
Thank you, and sorry 3 is a stupid question, I just want to make this the best tank my mom ever had without the fish dying, the Pet store now these days always gives her the wrong advice when sometimes she goes to buy fish, she hasn't had fish since maybe years so she can't remember much but still knows what she is doing.
