Is it worth the trouble?-sorority

I'm still trying to figure out what to do with my 10g tank when it's empty again. Looking for advice on sorority tanks. Any help is appreciated. Thanks. I have some questions too.....

1. Would 6 be a good number in a 10g?
2. How did you prepare for your sorority if you have/had one?
3. How long, if you did, did you qt each female for?
4. Was a sorority tank a very difficult process to go through?
5. Did you ever get a sorority to turn out well?
6. How many deaths did you have total, if any?
7. Dop you recommend a 10g sorority?

Any other tips, comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I tried making a sorority and it didn't work for me. It works best with females that have been raised together.
I put 5 in a 10 gallon, 5 is a good min. to have in a 10 gallon.
I prepared the tank by putting many hiding places and plants in the tank.
I didn't have any deaths, just some torn fins before I got them all out.
10 gallons are fine for a sorority, but with my experience bigger would be better.
In all honesty, I would never try it again.

I think it depends on the personalities of the girls as to whether it will work.

I am not having a good experience with a sorority. If you are going to do it I would try to find a breeder who raises the females in the same tank. defenitely atleast stick to Bettas of the same color, mainly the lighter ones because they ar emore docile.

1. 4 to 6.
2. I had 9 in a 29 gallon tank with a big decoration with many holes and tons of fake plants for them to hide.
3. How long, if you did, did you qt each female for?
4. So far it has. I had nine females and had to remove two of them. One was too agressive(dark blue) and I woke up one morning to find another with barely any fins. I can't afford tanks for each of the rest so if there are anymore accident sI don't know what I am going to do.
5. So far....no.
6. No deaths so far just torn up fins on one of the Betta.
7. In all honesty no. I have had mine for two days and I am worried what is going to happen to all of them. If I were you buy a 10g, buy a single male and try some cories which like to be at the bottom.

I think some breeders sell groups of females that are sisters and already acclimated to living with each other.
