I will be adopting two female bettas from a member on here who has come down on his luck :(
I am planning on putting them in my filtered, heated, and almost cycled tank (ammonia and nitrite drop everyday, nitrate at about 10-15ppm). I have five guppies in there, a boy and fours girls. I also have five cherry shrimps. About two days ago, in preparation for the bettas, I bought three females at petco. They are getting along pretty well right now, except for some occasional chasing, and I haven't seen any physical contact from any of them. So I am pretty hopeful about starting a sorority (but I've still got my eye on them! lol). The females also seem healthy. Their fins were clamped at first, but they are warm now and swimming around, though the horizontal stress bars have not faded away. They are eating well, and even they even try to steal the guppies flakes. I have posted pictures of each. There is one female who is a bit bloated and has a white dot under neath her. She is the one that is blue but with out the red pectoral fins. It looks like it might be a bit of stuck poo or something :/. Other than that, please let me know if you see anything wrong or that should be changed.
