Hi fellow betta fish lovers! :)
Just wanted to let you guys know I added my first 4 females and everything is going great so far. They haven't picked on each other at all so far, not even when I feed them. I think they are in too much shock going from tiny cup to 20 gallon to care about each other lol. I don't see why so many people hate the females and prefer the males. Don't get me wrong, I have two males and I love them, but the females have much more spunk to them. I was surprised how much faster they can swim than the males too, I'm guessing its where their fins are shorter. Anyways if you are thinking of starting up a freshwater tank, I would definitely consider putting female bettas in it. They are very entertaining to watch and even though the males are a little more attractive, the females are not ugly like some people think.
