I recently decided to house a female betta community tank after hearing that they could live together. I have four females, one who I have had a bit longer and three new ones. I have them all in a tank with lots of plants and objects to hide in if the need be as I was instructed to do so.
The girls have been in there since Friday and although I figure they would fight it out for an order to the tank, I didn't expect them to continue to do this. I will on occasion see them darting at one another and I was told that this is normal until a Queen Bee is chosen and then the others tend to fall into line.
I'm just worried that they will do more harm to one another and I don't want them to get hurt, are there any suggestions on making this transition easier or should I just put them into seperate tanks? Anyone with experience with females please let me know. Thanks!
