Few pics of my Betta sorority.

The girls have been together for over a week now and so far so good..bit of chasing but no torn fins or anything yet.

One of the girls still has stress stripes and has done ever since i got her(during QT they never went away) she seems fine and has done a lot of chasing of her own so i hope she settles soon.

My only problem is what i assume is brown algae that i have to wipe off the plant leaves each week.

  • YAY! I've been waiting for these.
  • The yellow one must be the one you got from the auction.
  • I have that plastic twirly plant in the middle, removed it because I thought the edges were too sharp.
  • Looks like a happy bunch, should be worth the trouble of cycling.
  • Just make sure not to add any more fishies.

So they're relatively peaceful, eh? I don't see any nipped/ragged fins.

  • You didn't get the albino cories? 3 would be cool addition after you qt them.

I did have 3 albinos but lost one..the other two are doing fine..perhaps i ought to add another.

No torn fins as yet..i will probably add some more plants at some point though,i do like the live ones but its the brown algae that puts me off..i did read that it is common in a new tank.

I got the yellow and red from the auction,the yellow seems pretty bossy lol.

Awesome tank! All those tall plants and the surface plants are fantastic. I might add some short bushy plants to the foreground to add somewhere to escape to, if I were you. I'm really enjoying your decorations too!

  • Oh yeah , the pint sized cory didn't make it.
  • Don't add any more cories for now. I couldn't see them in the photos
  • When the fish get along, got to learn to leave everything alone.
  • Cool night sky with a full moon background didn't notice it before
One thing you might want to try is to create a green lawn in the front of your crystal ball. Not sure what kind of low light plants you can use though.

  • I don't know enough plants to suggest anything other than the j ferns and anubias. But you already have those.
  • One plant that is cool, but may require a little more effort is a chain style sword plant.
  • The only thing I would ask is more pictures of the others.
  • As long as you don't overstock your tank with too many new kritters, & keep up with the maintenance, everyone should be happy & healthy for years.
  • Java style mosses are good low maintenance option if you can get enough, but they grow sooooo slow....

What kind of light do you have for the tank? Just need to know so I can recommend either low light level or high light level plants :)
