My sorority tanks so far.... suggestions?

Soooooo things COULD have better placement, but this is what I gave up on after much frustration. i mostly just wanted everything IN there so for now so it can get used to the water and i can keep cycling it. I will get more plants as I can but here is what I have so far!! They water looks cloudy cause the fish food I used to start the cycle disintegrated.

yeah... I am trying to figure out how to do that though... I have some floating planst but they don't really do much, and I am running out of money haha. I have a few silk plants I could put in there but that just feels wrong with plants in it :p

See how the girls do in that set up.. if there is still a lot of chasing/fighting after a week then I would add more in. But this could be enough.. I always suggest more tall plants as a basic rule of thumb - but sometimes you can only do with what you got. So add some in if you can, if not, it may be fine :) Up to the girls in the end how they live together heh.

I'm pretty sure there will be... I've got 9 girls and two of them are giants. And one of those giants is kind of a crack baby.... :p

What are the dimensions of that tank, are you sure it is big enough for 9 girls?

Just asking because I am thinking of starting a sorority as well.

It's a standard 20 gallon :) I added another fluffy tall plant and some dwarf hairgrass at the front. Going to pick up some seachem flourish later today so that hopefully the growing process can speed up. @10asartin if you have any questions at all about your sorority, feel free to pm me any time. i don't know if others feel this way, but for me the sorority process has been challenging so.... I'm here for ya!

It will probably be awhile before my planted tank is fully ready for the girls, but thanks for the offer!
