So Iíve had a thought; Iím currently cycling my 7.5 gallon tank at the moment and I was planning on putting a male betta in there. However, Iíve just measured an old tank I have in the garage and itís 8.8 gallons at least (I didnít measure the height; but using 12Ē as standard then itís 8.8 gallons, if itís 13Ē then itís 9.6 gallons (Iíd have to confirm that).
The old tank doesnít have a lid (but Iíd make one Ė well it does but itís broken from years of sitting in the garage), and it doesnít have a light. I can either divide the bigger tank for 2 males (I donít particularly fancy that idea) OR I could get a sorority of females (say 5).
Iím just wondering what people would recommend (single male or sorority of females), and why?
