Thanks Drama!

And dragonfish, thanks for the concern. I didn't really know about that... I also read in a book that as long as one female lets the other be the dominant one then they won't cause problems towards each other. Am I mislead? Because this book is put out by Animal Planet. :-/ And I have been meaning to get them a new bowl. Maybe once I get one, I'll separate them.

And thanks, they really are pretty fish. :)

Yes, I am afraid you were misled :/ One female will indeed dominate the other(However, its more like the weaker one is forced into submission rather then simply allowing the other dominance. If you were to put the weaker one with an even weaker female, she would dominate the other girl), but what will happen is the dominate female will bully the other to death. And, like I mentioned, it could be gradual or happen in the blink of an eye....the dominate one could just suddenly decide shes fed up with the other in 'her space' and do away with her.

But, yes, separating them as quickly as possible is a good plan :) Though, watch out, I may just sneak in and snag that little white girl of yours along with your DT ;)

Haha oh no you don't! Stay away from my Diamond!!

Anyway, thanks for the advice. I'll probably go to Petco later today to get a new bowl. Maybe even a new fish. ;)

Also, Dragon, random question: Do you think if I just ended up getting a couple new female bettas to make a sorority it would be alright to have them stay together??

lol, well if you wake up and shes not there, you'll know where she went ;)

Glad to help ^-^

Yes, if you were to get two or more females you could keep them all together....but you would need a VERY heavily planted 10+ gallon, and even then, Sororitys are still a big risk. They don't always work out, you always need to be prepared to separate them in case things get nasty.
Heres a GREAT sticky on Sororitys that DQ wrote ;) http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=29402

Thanks much Fire!

And Jupiter, I got my first betta from a pet store a few towns over from where I live (The orange veil tail) All the bettas looked kind of iffy 'cause they weren't pretty but I bought him 'cause I wanted one. And he turned out to be beautiful and interesting.
My second betta, Psych, (The male betta that's green blue and red) I got from an Oriental shop where there are cultural things in it and within it were like five or six fish in tiny cup like bowls. I bought one. :)
The other three I own I have received from Petco. Not bad buys, honestly. I love them all.
