The Betta and the frogs have been getting along great for 2 or three months both in this aquarium and their previous home. I'm not sure about the crab though. Now that I think about it, forget that I ever mensioned putting a crab in my tank! I mustn't have been thinking properly.

Ah, yes bettas and ADFs can get along but I think a crab would kill both the frogs and your betta...plus I think they need more brackish water than the other 2 inhabitants would like.

Thanks for the tip, I'll just focus on plants at the moment.

Sorry about the quality. My only camera at the moment is a scratched iPhone.

I like the zen look. My Bettas didn't get along so they have their own aquariums now. I thought that females were supposed to get along even though the males don't. Yours seem to be doing fine though, what's the secret?

Female sororities need to be properly set up and you need a minimum of four, although more is usually better. I can't wait to set mine up :)

That's why, I only had two. The VT was always beating up on the CT. I thought they would get used to each other but after two days I ended up separating them. She pretty much just chased the other one whenever she was in sight.

Alot of decor and hiding places help break up aggression but even then, I am not sure why mine get along so well, especially considering one of the females turned out to be a very young, mislabled male. Yes, he is still in there and yes I know males/females aren't supposed to live together but thay have lived together for about a year now and never have I seen any real aggression from any of them. He flares and sometimes chases that's about it.

Even with 4 or more females, there is no guarantee they will get along. Some are just too aggressive. I had one girl like that.
