So I moved my girls into a 10 gal and they loved it, they explored for almost 2 days, but now they have all clustered at one end of the tank, normally this kind of thing wouldn't bother me but they all want their own space on the same side (like kids fighting over the last peice of pizza when there is a second pizza...).
Baby my smallest betta is normally very fierce with her space and very defensive, but she has stopped that since Bessy (my largest) beat her up and took chunks out of her back (small bites taken out of her back), but Baby still remains on the one side with everyone else the only thing she does differently is she stays lower to the bottom while everyone else stays at the top (side-to-side).
So yeah, I need help with this, I can't have them all fighting over half of the tank while there is still another half open to them, I can't allow them to kill each other like this, I could understand if the tank was amller or if that side of the tank was 'ugly' but the tank is entirely the same for both sides, I'm very confounded right now.
for specs, the water is kept at 74 (I try to keep it warmer but my room is generally chilly for my Tiger Sal and the tank kind of suffers for it (the fish don't seem to mind), the tank is uncycled but I change the water weekly and suck up the gunk from the bottom with a turkey baster, they are fed pellets, frozen bloodworms, and freeze-dried daphnia every now and then (the fasting day is sunday), and they don't have a view of Dorian (my DT male), there is currently 5 girls living it (Bessy (largeest by far), Pepper (medium), Salt (medium), Rain/Rainbow (slightly larger than Salt & Pepper but still smaller than Bessy), and Baby (the smallest)).
Any help at all would be much appreciated, even if the suggestion is silly or weird.
