Alright. So I have a 10 gallon tank that I'm using to house 6 female bettas.
I'm curious how many females should go into a 10 gallon? I read that 5-6 should be the minimum for a sorority so I had bought 6.
Someone said recently to me that overstocking is better than understocking the tank and that I could add more females with 1 female per gallon. Then I've heard people say the 10 gallon tanks are too small to house a sorority.
So I wanna know what everyone's opinions on sororities are.
My sorority is going great with 6 females in a 10 gallon tank. But now I'm wondering what everyone recommends.
I've already read that thread, Russell. It was helpful when I was looking into starting the sorority. I have the sorority already started up now. It's been going good for about a week now. Almost.
I have 6 females in my tank. They're all younger females, not very big. They all seem to do pretty well in the tank with each other.
PetMania said 1 female per gallon in another thread and I was like, wait a minute. And started this thread. Haha.
I have 7 in my sorority, and it's perfect the way it is! They were downsized from a 30g, and will soon be upgraded back to it, but in a divided 20g area. I think a 10g is perfect for a sorority, and can work great, but if you really want them to thrive, a bigger tank and more girls would be best
