Two girls and a boy in a tank?

The lady at the petco today said that I could keep two girl bettas and a boy betta in the same tank and they would not kill each other because the girls would protect each other. Is this true?

I don't want to have the all the bettas in the same tank and have them kill each other! Especially since I found a beautiful female crowntail!

No!! That is definitely NOT true!! All three of them will be fighting each other!! Petstore employees very seldom know what they are talking about! The females each need their own containers and so does the male.

I cannot believe the "information" these pet store employees tell customers! They seem completely clueless about Bettas. I'm only curious about the other animals in the store as well. *sigh*

Yea I was pretty skeptical when she said that. I had hope that it would work, but it didn't seem logical from what I read here.

It would be nice if they could be kept together. Then I wouldn't have to have 9 separate tanks! lol

or you could get a 10 gallon and split it in 3 spaces that way you dont have to clean the tank as much

Heh, my Petco said you could keep males together but not females. Loosers... They seriously need to get educated!

You'd think that the fact that they're housed in seperate cups and named 'Siamese Fighting Fish' would be a big enough clue...

And 5Green gave a good suggestion! Doggyhog has a split 10 gal with two males and a female.
