Picture of the aquarium and Fluval

I can't get the pictures on the posts. Anyway, I have a 2.5 gallon Fluval with one male Betta (and a small catfish to clean the floor.) My other aquarium is a full size 16 gallon set up with the filter system by "Whisper" and a UV sterilizer . I have three types of tetras who get along fine. Then I have one male Betta and 19 female Bettas. Other then a few fin nips, they appear to get along. They have been this way for 8 months. Some of the females have long fins, and are very colorful. A few of them have the stress signs of horizontal stripes and lack of original color. The color comes back in most, but a couple are just nervous fish. I have lost very few. I read about the mating process, and was thinking of taking a pretty female out, and put her with the solo green male. As long as he does not kill her, I think they will mate.
What do you all think?

I think you should keep your male in his own home, and monitor and make sure the females and tetras are truly getting along. It is going to compromise their health eventually, constantly living in a stressful situation. Aquariums cannot be compared to the wild, where fish are able to get away from each other.

+1 Fish are like people: Constant stress takes a toll on their health. I would take the male out of the sorority and get him a home of his own.

I forget where I got my silk plants but I got all the plants in the tank I posted above in a pack for I think like $7 or $8 online somewhere.
