Just thought I'd give a bit of an update on the Betta tank.

I was beginning to see some aggressiveness developing, Nothing serious, So I won't be remove any more plants (jave moss or water sprite),

Things have settled down since then and I haven't seen anymore signs of trouble.
The red male is still getting along great with all the females,
And Still no one bothers any of the cories,
At feeding time they all eat beside each other with no signs of bickering or aggressiveness,

My cories have learned the good stuff sometimes floats, so they try to join in on the feast, it's so funny watching them trying to eat off the top..

Well I saw a strange event today,
One of my bigger blue female betta's latched onto the tip end of the Red male Betta's tail and hung on like a piece of dead weight while the male went nuts zipping all over the tank trying to shake her off,
Took a good 30 seconds for him to shake her, Gonna have to monitor this closer,
May have to remove the male or perhaps put back some Java moss I had removed,,

How strange indeed. I didn't think bettas were ones for giving piggy-back (piggy-tail?) rides.

I removed the Red Male tonight,
The tail grabbing is an act of aggression that's slowing building and i know where it's leading,
To the males demise & I can't have that, So he's in his own tank, safe and sound...

I love hearing more updates on this experiment, although it's a touch sad to see they couldn't co-habit with the male. But best he's in his own tank now, would be a pity to have him shredded by the girls. He's not getting any signs of depression now that he's all alone in his own tank again is he? I've read about this being an issue with some bettas when they are first jarred and separated for the first time after being hatched, I've wondered if it is also a problem some bettas may suffer from later on in their lives. Then again, one male isn't enough of a test group to accurately determine anything like that.
Have the females been trying any of this tail grabbing business towards each other, or was it just the male?
