New sorority set-up - 72 gallons

We got a 110 gallon off of craigslist last week for FREE! So I got to move my african cichlids out of their tank and into the 110. That left an open 72 gallon. My husband suggested I upgrade my sorority from their 30 long since Petsmart was having the big sale and female bettas are only $0.99. So I majorly stocked up on some female bettas. I now have 52 in total. There are also 15 rasboras and 6 corydora sterbia.

The tank is heavily filtered. It has 2 canisters on it which technically filter up to 130 gallons. They are connected together by a spray bar that goes the full length of the back that my husband created. He's handy!

Here is a pic of the set-up. I am hoping to get some more floating plants to go at the top or some longer plants for the back.

Lol! I couldnt keep count with 15. I just kind of have to know who is there and look throughout the tank to see if anyone is acting weird. Just like any large community tank. The main reason we moved the cichlids is they hid all the time in that tank for some weird reason. Moved them to the 110 and they are crazy active. We knew female bettas wouldn't hide and would be fun to watch and they are! Plus its just cool! Haha! :)

Thanks! :):) It kind of cracks me up because all the decor is a little on the short side since most came out of the 30 long. I think more floating plants will fix that.

I am just hoping for minimal fighting since there are so many. My main girl (never named any of the females for some reason) that I have had since my first sorority tank acts as a referee. She is probably the biggest female in there and she just presses up against the girls trying to cause trouble. I guess to calm them down or something. It is so darn cute!

That is a great setup! I love the way the decor looks natural, but with little punches of color. It goes very nicely with all of those colorful bettas!
