just had a female pass away today..i have 1 female betta in my 10 gallon now thats divided and the other side has 2 female black mollies(i know the tank is too small for mollies,but thats a long story) i thought about taking my only female betta, divided my other 10 gallon that has my 2 males in it and putting her in there with them divided.now ive read its not a good idea due to the hormones the females give off,the males smell it.and go crazy..ive read its ok..
i would like to put her in the tank with the other bettas as im currently redecorating into an all asian theme and getting some asian plants and decor to go in.
and want to take my other 10 gallon she is currently in, have the 2 mollies in it and add a couple other fish that im not sure of what i want exactly.
last time i checked.this female is quiet aggressive to the mollies.but its been a while as i was happy with the setup.
my males in my 20g hex has gone from 7 to 3 black mollies but also houses 4 rosy red minnows..im sure the females wont be as stressed though i just got 1 of the black females today.if i put the female betta in the betta tank with the males and the 2 females mollies in the 20 with the 3 males and 4 minnows.that would free my 10 gallon to start a small SW tank which i prefer.and i will be prepared for anything to happen with my fish
i have a 1 gallon hospital tank and a 2 gallon tank thats currently not occupied.and could possibly get another 10 gallon if i make room.
any ideas on what will be fine?adding the 2 female mollies to the 20g with the 3 males mollies and 4 minnows?
1 female in divided 10 with 2 male bettas?
experience/advice and suggestions greatly appreciated as im not sure what would be best for my fish.
