Sororities- Need some inspiration! <3

Planning a harem for my King of Siam, and I like to have a plan way ahead of time. I was wondering if people could please post some pictures of their sororities? I'd like to see what other people are doing with theirs and maybe get some inspiration for mine. =)

I am new to sororities myself, I just stared one yesterday. I have set up in a 10 gal tank 5 females, japser gravel at the bottom, live plants- grown betta bulbs and moss plant. I also have x-large fake but soft plastic pond imitation plants. I have large polished rocks for extra hiding :) I need more plants for them though, they are still chasing. They like large plants a lot :) Id show a pic but I havnt taken one yet!

Mine has a lot of amazon swords, and a lot of floating anacharis that the girls can hide/sleep in.

*.* Nice one, Copper. That's really gorgeous.

Also, SERIOUS PROPS for naming a fish after an obscure Lord of the Rings character. Glorfindel is the man.

I need to top it off, but Im doing a water change today so I'll do it then. Maybe if I didn't keep my room so stinking hot for my other fish (that dont have a heater) that wouldn't happen so quick.
Anyways, one fake hornwort, some wisteria floating and stuck in the gravel, and one amazon sword (thats probably about to die). and a fake something else idk what it is... and I think my java fern is dieing too... but when I get my 20 long, I'm getting the right light bulbs so maybe it will live again?! I can only hope. theres 5 girls. :P

and I'm getting more plants (my birthday is coming up, so thats why I haven't put more plants in yet)

Ha ha Sakura is in time out because she bit a few girls and keeps flaring. So I put her in a floatie cup. Now she behaves X'D


Today is day 2 of my sorority hopefully the biting and chasing will all stop soon.

Just added 5 girls to my planted, cycled 10g on Monday. Special-ordered from a breeder on aquabid-same spawn sisters. Arrived in one bag. No issues so far! Can't get them to hold still for pics though...

well, it's kind of embarrassing because that tank is over stocked, I have 9 girls, then 3 other fish with them (one was supposed to go in another tank, but they tried to kill it, and another was a wallmart rescue who needs a completely new tank), I do one 60% water change, and a 30% water change every week just to be safe and everyone gets along great.

When I moved them into that tank they never picked on each other, even when I take one out and put her back in later in the day :)

lol, I've never thought of Glorfindel as a obscure LOTR's character XD, at the moment I'm trying to decide who will get these names-Elladen, Elrohir, Manwe, Hurin LOL

And Astaldo is a elvish word that means "Valiant", I might be a big fan of the books, movies, and other books(like Silmarillion, children of Hurin) LOL

@Impolite
Thanks :D

Anyone else, did any bettas pick on each other the first few days of their sorority? O. o I feel left out, everyone so far has told me their girls never fought but mine pick at each other and chase each other except when they sleep : /
Norichan, I suggest lots and lots of plants for hiding... that way your girls dont end up getting torn up like mine. Im soooo sad because they all had gorgeous vibrant colored fins! :' ( oooo driftwood and rock caves give bettas a natural looking home.
If you want a natural looking habitat, google Thailand rice paddies and ponds on images for visual ideas : )
