there's an LRS/LFS that got a green betta. i have no potograghic evidence as he told me this many months after he happened to come across it. he said it definetely wasnt a turquoise type of green. he didnt elaborate its fate but from the sounds of it, it was a genuine green betta.

:( well back on topic [haha nel me n u are so bad ;P] iv updated my hopefully soon to be sorority :) i added 3 amazon swords and took out the heavy filter [was used for cycling] and now im left with this.. plan on adding a plant or 2 more [types] to fill in some of the space but i think its looking great sofar! :D amazons are back right corner [behind other type of swords] in front of the driftwood and a small ones behind the driftwood lil ight of the other [wanted one there but didnt wana dig up one of the bigger ones lol]

i know i need a lil more cover and plants.. not sure how to do hides as i have no room for pots :\ and thats kinda what mine use [lil like 2in pots tho] but i do plan on getting like a fern for back left corner if my bulb dont grow n maybe a few nana's for front?:D

@Pyro

Your tank looks nice! I think a tall plant right near the center would defenitely help a lot.
They reccomend that if you look on one side of the tank that you cant see the other side, that's how full it's reccomended to fill with plants.

Good luck with your sorority!

well im trying to let them grow as they are all small 4in plants [tho amazons were like 5in+] and i bought some betta bulbs hoping at least one of those proves out :) il prob only put 4 girls in this 20high and nothing elese unless i find a Malaysian trumpet snail or something. so if i add say 1 tube of anubia, a few nana plants in front and the one seed in the tank. i think ill be set. again lettign them grow too and hoping i get my seeds to work [one ik is a dud its still rock hard after almost 3 weeks. and one looks like its sprouting lil leaves maybe but hoping it getting so cold the othr day wiel i was asleep with windows open didnt kill it]

im wanting them to grow a bit so i have no casualties. also gona use as few females and plants as i think i can. again like i said im not done iv still got 2 or 3 tubes to buy [they hav 3+ plants in them usually] and im by nomeans adding girls any time soon. iv still got them in QT and still gota buy 2 of them lmao then wait 3 weeks on their QT XD im in no rush im just easing along and hoping more then one fish can call this home :P i dont feel i can plant it as well sence the driftwoods in thereand i wana be able to at least kinda see the wood :P

My cousin just bred her monstrous male veiltail with her tiney female. i will recieve many female children when they come of age. my question... can i put 6-10 females in a 25 gallon tank with a male crowntail (my betta)? the water is cycled by a pump that is a little rough( splashingwater at the surface to produce air bubbles). ps... i have 30ish guppies and neon tetras in the tank.

No, males and females should never be housed together. Even if they don't show signs of agression, there have been people that had a male live with females for over a year before he killed them.

I suggest you have your friend seperate them before one is killed.

teenys right give the male his own tank. like a 1-5g. and i fim not mistaken.. your tanks not filtered.. so it aint cycled.. its aerated.. also i think your tanks pretty overstocked as is.. you probably couldnt put even a singlelil betta without throwing the tank even further off

@teeny to you agree with the driftwood thing i said tho? think my npt sorority will be a flop?:P
