So I fell in LOVE with this BEAUTIFUL white female on aquabid (of course I didn't realize registering would take so long SO I missed my chance BUT I did email the person asking if she would come back or if they could put her up again). Here's the closed link of her http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shmp1359070211
But anywho so I REALLY love elephant eared bettas and I want to start a sorority tank (probably will get my 10 gallon after spring break which will be the first of March IF my grades are good). I already have Maybelline and when I saw that girl I was like 'I should totally buy a elephant ear female!!'.
Now my question is, could that be a potential problem? I'm just thinking i'd love to get 6 females in the 10 gallon (and eventually move to a 15 gallon tank) and so I thought that would be enough to help with the pecking order BUT would the 'elephant ears' case that betta to be picked on more or what? I just wanted to know some thoughts on that because I was thinking about at least adopting a girl now and keeping her in my 2.5 or splitting my 5 until I get my 10 gallon and a third girl.
Also, can I switch the water/gravel/filter from my 5 to my 10 and still have a cycled tank? Or would it be like starting over again??
