50 Gallon Sorority

Yup, I'm gunna do it. I'm going to get a nice, big 50 Gallon tank in a couple of months, and I want to know how many females I could put in there. Any one have opinions? I won't be getting it set up until around Christmas, but I'd still like to know. It's been killing me lately (: I just want a small number... nothing like... 20, or anything. That's way too much D: Would 20 even get along like that? Anyways, give me your opinions.

Well you can put A LOT of females in there. Basic rule of thumb of course is 1 gallon per inch (some people say 1 gallon per fish).

I will say not to put anything less then 5 in there though. I would stick with an odd number so the pecking order can be established.

50 gallons should be enough room to keep them all happy! As said before though, lots of plants/caves/hiding places. I can't wait to see it, I bet it's going to look amazing!

Well, it'll be four months before anything comes close to happening, so I'll think about things some more. I can't wait either x3 But it'll take a bunch of money to set up, so once again, it'll take awhile before it's all set for the girls.

AngelicScars said an odd number. How about 9 or 11? And there will be plenty of room for plants and caves! :)

You scared me there for a minute, Mr. V xD And of course pics will be taken! Just don't count on beautiful pics, since cameras seem to hate me.
9 or 11 would be perfect, actually. Not too little, and not too much. Plus, then I'd be able to get to know the girls, which is what I'm most nervous about. I don't want them to be just fish like they are to some people.

9-11, wow, I wish I could do that. Just can't afford the 50 gallon tank :(

The only reason I can afford it is because I inherited it after the death of my dad. Not a good way to get something, but I'm determined to make it beautiful. It used to house Oscars, but they scare me xD Always bit me when I tried to feed them. And I've found the only fish that are really beautiful to me now are bettas. -.o; It's terrible, yet wonderful.
