females

I think I saw this somewhere on this forum before, but I'll ask anyway. Can female bettas be alone or is it better to have them in groups?

They can do just fine on their own.

I wouldn't say it would be "better" to be in a group. But that's my own opinion. It's only an available - albeit tricky - situation.

my female betta floats? would that beacause she has an air bubble in her or would her fins cause her to swim butt end up? there is a male betta with her and I think he is attacking her would that be part of the problem as well?

@misschris05- I would separate the female and male immediately. Males and females should only be together for breeding purposes. What size is the tank?

That's way too small. Like I said, they should never be in the same tank together unless it's divided or breeding purposes. I would remove one immediately until you can get it another tank. They're called "fighting fish" for a reason. Females can be even more aggressive than males. Your male will just keep beating up your female until he kills her or visa versa.

Males grow a couple inches long not counting their fins. I have a big male that's about 4 inches long and my "King" betta can get up to 6 inches. Females tend to be on the smaller side, but they can get pretty long too. No, they won't grow to the size of their tank.

I agree with BettaFishCrazy. I would separate your male and female before someone gets hurt or killed.
