At least you got them together!!! lol Madame wanted to be in the pictures, but I didn't want her picture I wanted everyone elses LOL. she getting chasing everyone off and butting in... Then Rose was always in the way and it took a good time to catch Zebra :p
Your girls are beautiful.. Good to hear you rescued them for the bad conditions they were in :D
I got 2 girls that were in a sorority tank in the pet shop and set up my own little own here at home.. One I took out and put in my breeding tank to breed, when I put her bad in they started bashing each other... no idea why... My breeding girl swims on top of IAL (and gets stuck).. The one I didn't breed makes bubblenest... I got some weird girls..
i wish i could put mine in a sorority, but they're all so different. different ages, and they didn't grow up together at all(
Does the age thing make a difference? All of my girls are different and for the most part, get along fine. I am not sure of their ages but one girl is HUGE - about as big as petco's king bettas and the smallest is maybe an inch or an inch and a half. She is real tiny.
Different spawns mattered with mine LOL. I got four girls, definite sisters. I got two first, then a month later got the other two. After some fin nipping they were fine. My used-to-be-gentle-giant-now-snail-killer female Madame is triple anyone's size, and is such a b......ig meanie >.> I got pictures though of the tank!
Pretty tank but you might want to add more stuff to it, like some taller plants and some more hiding spots to break up their line of sight (in case they get chased). I have slowly been adding more stuff to mine since I upgraded to the 20 gallon. I need more tall plants
Well, I had everything rearranged. And would ya know it made things better for the girlies!!!! Seems a lot more calm in there. I notice ONLY Madame is the instigator/attacker. D: Soon I'll be moving her... so she can be by herself. I want to add more girls, and will be easier with my other females but she'll rip them apart ;(
I'll look into tall plants... I'll have some floating plants back in there probably. Eventually, once I find my balloon mollies (4) a new home, I'll research planting my tanks... All of them :) tall plants and all!!
Actually, the smaller gals have their stripes again :/ because of Madame... I noticed when she is not in there they are more vibrant! So I'm thinking of removing her pretty soon here lol. My Rose, usually is white with the red/pink fins outlined with black. Once Madame was there yeah she went the "ugly brown" color >< So I'm thinking it's just Madame Snail-Killer. >.> lol. Everyone else gets along. It's actually cute! Rose was bugging her sister Zebra, Zebra flared, and Rose was doing a "little sister" move by inching towards her xDD No fin nipping, nothing, just a comical thing like we would with oour siblings... just to annoy them!!! =D
But yes, I'll be adding more plants lol. When I can get some more :p maybe some potted tall plants.
