Wink bettas

Hi everyone, I purchased 6 female bettas today to go in my 19 gallon tank, they are lovely and doing great. It said on the internet that I could put 1 male in ther with them, so guess what I did , he thinks hes died and gone to heaven, not bothering anyone they are all ding well and hope it stays that way. I will send some pics as soon as I take some and get them posted and hope you find them as lovely as I do.

I recommend you take that male out of the tank with those 6 females soon. Someone will end up hurt or dead. They cannot be together unless breeding...

That is a recipe for disaster.

It is VERY rare for a male doing well in a tank with males. A lot of the time a sorority doesn't even work.
I would suggest removing the male and keeping him in his own tank. As far as the others, keep an eye on them.

Yeah I dont' know how well it will work out for long. I would take the male out. But all the females should be fine.

I agree with all the others. Males should not be kept with females, except for breeding. Some one WILL end up hurt or dead.

I admit it, I was too... boy fish surrounded by 6 girl fish - could make for one happy boy... And I know that our bettas are territorial - but, is it wishful thinking that such a nice harem couldn't exist for that li'l boy betta?

Females can be territorial too. I wish we could put bettas all together in one big tank but it just doesn't work that way.

If the tank is big enough, and there are about 40 female bettas and one male betta it MIGHT work.
