My girls don't share.

At least not anymore!! I used to have 7 girls in a 20 gallon divided so that there were 2 males to either side of them.

Well, I promised them I'd get a new tank for the boys so that they wouldn't have to share anymore... and wouldn't have to tolerate any more aggressive flaring through the dividers.


And a good fish-mom always keeps her promises.

I'm up to 9 girls now in the 20 gallon:

I am TOTALLY loving this tank. It's like... my new baby. Haha.

What I'm wondering is, IF I find any more gorgeous girls, would it be safe to add more? And if so, how many more? I'd obviously rather play it safe!

I do a 10-20% water change every week. It's filtered, heated and is all real plants. :)

very neat 9 is probably a good number to keep it at as long as you keep it real clean =)

I think you could add 2 more. I had a successful 20g sorority with 12 females, but I bred and raised them.. So..It is different with store bought females, that arent used to living with others. Its best to find sorority females at a young age..This will help them learn how to live with others faster and easier, as while a older female wouldnt like the idea because she has always been housed alone..
