Thanks for letting me know. I'll dose the Vitachem in the water as well. I looked at your tanks... very nice. I thought of doing a soriety, but got scared and chickened out. I heard mixed messages as for their success. I see you have it heavily decorated, so must be ok for them.

As long as you have lots of plants it works out well! Its when you give up on the sorority that it falls apart. Here's a pic of mine as well for reference:



I have a 33 gallon here with 7 girls at the moment, one in quarantine to soon make 8 :D hoping to find a Black CT with red finnage to finish off and make it 9.
They've all been in there since Wednesday and not one fight has broken out, there is still a possibility but I monitored my girls before they went in to make sure that they were sorority quality. Sometimes on the rare occasion you'll have to take a girl out if she's being too much of a bully and hurting the others, but that's a rare occasion.

Some of the girls today (had to take the massive water sprite out for a bit)

Wow both of you are so brave! I appreciate your help. The pin holes have gone away on my Betta. His fins still have ridges hopefully those will improve as well.

I planned my sorority tank for 3 and a half months. If its planned out, researched, and set up right then it doesn't usually fall apart.

I also took extra precautions such as back up meds, VitaChem, live plants, and I got my girls from breeders instead of pet stores, but I did still have a back-up tank in case a girl didn't work out.
