I really wouldn't wish it. Unless you divide the tank you should just leave it as him. Even then it might not work, some bettas just don't react well with others, even through a divider screen.

Male with females work, realistically you'd need a community tank that's say oh 55+gallons then have a few other types of fish in shoals and then have like 1 male and like 3 females all having their own corner of the tank. Really its all about how much space, if they can't get away and if there are not other distractions say a well planted/hidey hole community tank then you take the odds from say 50% working to like 5% chance of working.

Well, I agree. In a 55g it can be done. I've done it in a 39, but it took lots of time to get my old male, Deuce to be ok with such a setup. Still don't reccomend it. for the larger audiences.

1 male with MULTIPLE females is fine...the agression is spread out provided the tank is big enough.

I suppose that does make sense. but say you put a male in a sorority of siblings? Would they then gang up on the male?

I wouldn't recommend this setup for beginners. Some people who have been in the hobby for a long time like OFL have success with this kind of setup.

I have noticed, that my two female sisters, tend to stick and play together, and the other two sisters do the same... they tend not to like to bump into each other but they do tolerate. Madame, had no siblings, and she is a righteous little bugger to the other girls...

Well I've put a male in a tank with his children once they grew up...remember he hadn't seen them since they were barely learning to swim so when he got in there with his now grown offspring there was somewhat of a hostile attitude toward his largest and dominant son....but once they had an initial flare off the son backed down and the peace maintained. So no sibs won't gang up. In fact that same spawn is still living together (dad passed away).

hey not bad... Yeah my girl, although is a half sister to the others, doesn't like them. She beats them up o_O well that and she killed my snail x.x she will just have to be a loner female betta I guess. The other girls tolerate each other :p actually kind of cute seeing how they interact...
