Yup, Hopefully i can get out tomorrow and get a breeders net for her.
Thank you for the help.

With the alpha position filled, is she less likely to be accepted back later?

A little back ground on her.
I tried breeding her to 3 different males in the past, and after about an hour she lost interest in them. They would flare at her, and she would ignore them totally.

This is some good info, i woke up this morning to notice two of my girls were missing some chunks of fin after i fight im guessing, they are both in their own QT tank, but in my 10 gal are the other 3. Im wondering if its ok to leave the three in there because i thought that little number of girls was not good

you want at least 4.


oh reminds me.
previously, i thought 3 was an ok number, so i had Ami, Beni and a little red girl. Ami killed her.

Not necessarily. Remember each betta is an individual, and sorority behavior is very fluid (and not just because the tank is filled in water)! ;)

Lol, nice.

Well, i hope she can fit back in later...i would have to find some one to take her if she couldnt. I have room for her to be alone, but i would have to move my other female into the tank.

I would 'cup' the three other bettas individually and float their containers in the sorority until everyone makes it back to the tank. Anchor the cups to the tank side with tape, and cover the cups with plastic wrap (make sure the bettas can get fresh air) to prevent escapes/intrusions.

10 gallon sororities are very dicey, because of the low number of fish in the sorority if one or two are removed... and low numbers increase aggression and territorial behavior.

Lunawatsername,

"Slugger and the Tag Alongs"

Sounds like a name for a late 1950's/early 1960's band! :D
