(Hope this is in the right section!)
Hello all c:
I have a 50g tank and I'm looking into hopefully putting a sorority in it. I'm not new to owning Bettas though I've never had a female before so I was hoping for some advice or links to some helpful guides or something, anything so that I dont go about this blindly, I really dont want to cause an awful environment for my fish just because I dont know what I'm doing.
I know most of the basic stuff, mostly from reading threads on here, but I havent really found anything on tanks this big. Frankly, I'm not even sure if it's a good idea to have a tank this big for just a sorority ^^;
A few specific questions I would have would be how many females should I put in?
I know 5 is the minimum, but I have a lot of room and just 5 might look a tad sparse. Granted, Im going to have a lot of cover in it, like plants and stuff, but a number would be helpful. I'd love to have a massive amount of them but I really want to do what's best for the fish.
What are some good things to put in a tank besides plants? (Ill be using fake ones I think, with gravel substrate) Ive seen flower pots and coffee mugs. Im hoping to keep cost to a minimum, though I dont mind dishing out some cash so my girls can be happy
So basically, any information or tips would be appreciated.
If you feel a sorority would be beyond my current expertise, please let me know? I'm actually quite worried about doing something wrong and dont want to end up killing everything ;A; I'll freely admit I'm still a bit of a newb with bettas but I come on here all the time now and I'm learning new things everyday (You guys have gotten me hooked!)
