Mini female community?

I was thinking of buying a bunch of small tanks (2 gallons) and putting about 4 sisters in each tank after the males are jarred. What do you think?

4 females in 2 gallon? um no. 4 need at least need a 10 gallon heavily planted. Now 1 girl for each tank is perfect.

no way possible to put 4 in a 2. unless ya want dead girls. its just enough room for 1. period. find homes for your girls? take em to lps or lfs? only options really. and sororities dont always work out even in a 10. best to house them alone like our males.

Not saying that putting 4 in 2 gallons is a good idea, but isn't it easier to have females together when they have been raised together?

I think 2 gallons is too small and even sisters don't always get along. Ask some people here who have sisters. lol I think a 10 gallon is your best bet.

NO! It is hard enough to raise them in a bigger tank. If they were raised since birth you might be able to do it but I don't think you should take the chance. Get a 10 gallon, trust me they are cheap!

I'm a breeder and I have a new idea on housing my sisters.

Can't you put all of them in a 10 or 20 gallon, depending on how many you have?
