Question A small question...

Can two female Bettas live in a 10 gallon tank? I know they aren't as agressive. I am just wondering if it is big enough.

Hello and welcome to FishForum. I wouldn't recommend adding less than 4 to a 10 gallon tank. With only 2 females, one will beat up on the other one.

Yep, you need at least 4 females. People say odd numbers are better, though. I myself have 4 females in a 10 gal and I'm planning on buying another one later on.

One thing that I noticed is that I bought 2 at first together, they were sisters I think. I had them for a while before I added 2 more, and they got along great. I don't know if all siblings are like that, but I wouldn't try my luck.

Thanks! I didn't want my future bettas to beat up each other. I will get four.
