lol i went female hunting today! and ended up with a bigger tank and heater and pump for my male.......i seem to always walk out the pet shop with a hole in my wallet. the petshops by me are out of stock..shame the one shop had two dead bettas today...only i noticed them so made a scene and they got taken out...i have ordered some females hehe
Wow, It looks like I'm not the only one who has that problem with pets shops too. Lol. As of my Sorority tank, well a few ripped fins, bulling, moments were my parents go "Now you know what it's like to be a parent of teens", several old tanks, and a devider later, I can now say that my fish have their own spaces and are doing much better.
It defeats the purpose of a sorority tank I guess, but my fish are now happy.
I mean it! It was like I was the mother of five teenage daughters! Fortunately once everyone's all settled in and comfortable, and the fish inflicted injuries (my poor babies!) have heal (which they are doing very quickly) I'll be able to post pictures. ^_^
I've done a little research as to why my tank didn't work, all my girls are brightly colored female bettas, which means that they are basically female bettas with a more male like aggression, and it's a gene that comes with the bright colors. So if you want to do a Sorority tank, make sure all your females are a brown color, they are the more docile.
