Hi. I've crrawled BettaFish site for several years but I've just registered. I have a couple questions and have included a brief description. My current household will soon total me, my Chinese Crested dog, and 4 male betta - 2 CT and 2 PK.
Got a new 10 gallon tank and divided it using the binder edge and #7 mesh method. Sealed it using a waterproof silcon product made by Crazy Glue. (No, NOT crazy glue. They just make this stuff.) Let it cure for over 24 hrs per instructions on package...added water and within one hour had floating dividers. The silicon failed. Thouht it would work since I've used it before in other applications. Any one got any suggestions. For now...I've just gotten a separate tank in which my new guy will live.
That leaves me with an empty 10 gallon tank. I've never tried a sorority before and am thinking about it but am worried that all the females might need to be put in the tank at the same time. Is that true? Or with lots of hiding space can I start with three and grow to 5 or 7?
I've kept betta for many years and have owned as many as 100 at one time (in 50 divided tanks). No, I don't breed...I'm just a little crazy (about bettas.) I'm (much) older now and live in a smaller place with less extra money so the days of true betta craziness are long gone. When my new male arrives that will make 4 total each in his own heated 2 gallon tank.
Now to fill that 10 gallon tank...divided for more males? for a sorority? Don't know yet until someone helps me out here.
