7 female bettas
8 harlequin rasboras
6 bottom dwellers
in a 29 gallon?

or is that too stocked?

I also have 5 in a 10 gallon going. They're all such cuties! I only worry though about the 2 CTs. My "bad girl" CT (I named her Ana Lucia) seems to have a problem only with my other CT (Libby). She'll flare and chase her around and Libby will get stress stripes occasionally. Should I be worried about her getting stressed too much? They're not biting each other and Libby generally tries to avoid Ana Lucia if she can.
I love feeding them though! Its so cute to have all 5 of them gathering for food :)

I'm gonna give this a try.

The bottom of the tank is really well covered as I have a lot of smaller "foreground" plants from petco and several houses but the top is kinda bare.
I out a cup with some silk plants on top of a tree stump to make the plants go up higher.

gonna get some taller ones tomorrow or maybe some floating real ones if I can fins them.

ohman..

i really want to start a sorority.
i love the little girls i have now and think it'd be gorgeous to have a few more, in the same tank.

i pretty much promised myself if everything goes good this year, by my birthday (in january) i'd let myself start a sorority.


any tips on preparation? anything that might make me not want to start one? xD for the gallon size, i was thinking 10 gals, but i may indulge and buy something a bit bigger..

okay, larger is better. c: gotcha.

also is four or six the minimum norm for number of bettas? (really) what does better?



and do i need to condition them over a certain amount of time?
