Hey, everybody! I'm Savannah. I'm new to bettafish.com and new to bettas/fish in general, so please bear with me in my newbieness. I've always LOVED fish and have always wanted to get some, but I haven't really gotten the money or the time together to get some until now. Upon searching for my perfect first fish and for other fishy information, I FELL IN LOVE with the Betta fish. I have my 10 gallon tank all set up and everything, and I plan to get some bettas tomorrow.
The question is how many female Bettas can I put in my 10 gallon? Petsmart says 5-6, but on here no one seems to have more than 3 put together at once. Do Bettas get irritated in big crowds? I'm hoping to put only 3 or 4 in there together. Will this work? And if so, is there anything I should be careful of?
Oh, and if I have 3 or 4 in my ten gallon, how often and of what percentages should I do water changes? I've read up in this area, but I'm getting varying answers and am confused.
Answers will be much appreciated!
