I'm sorry to hear! It seems they may have been fighting and injured each other internally. They do take bites at the body of their opponent when fighting. I have one female right now who's missing a few scales on her side.

I had one die recently who only seemed to be missing a bit of her fins, but she was bitten on the abdomen.

Poor baby :(

She told me it was mostly their fins. Told her to get some Epsom salt for them if she could.

Hey everyone. Hope everyone's sororities are going great!
I recently moved so I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. I am working from home in my new place. I have my office set up in a 2nd bedroom. I've set up my 9-girl sorority in here too. Thought I would post a pic I took from my desk :)

I have added more girls to my sorority. Along with decorations (hiding places along with fake plants they hide in) and live java moss. A bunch of live java moss. This is where I can usually find the shiest one of them all. She's a little cutie. My sorority is much more colorful now. Now instead of streaks of just silver, I have a big orange, blues, an orange dragon, blacks, and yellows!

I want to add some more fish to mine.

Tank specs:
20g high
Filters: Top Fin 20 & Aqueon QuietFlow 10
Fish:
5 female bettas
6 Albino corydoras

Am I stocked? If I add neon tetras, 5 would probably be my limit. Is 5 too small a school? I was also considering a snail or 2.

Any other fish suggestions?

It's a great post but I'm just wandering, how would you know which betta to put in first because you don't know which betta is the least/most agressive?

The thing is, you put the Bettas last since they think that they're invading territory.
EDIT: Whoops wrong thread.

I recently added to my sorority. I could tell who's most aggressive from the ones I added, because she was the one doing the most flaring at the other "sisters" who were already in the tank. I released her last. Once I released all of the new females, there was a big flare showdown going on between her and the alpha of the existing females.
