(If you have your volume up, you can hear our Siamese cat 'wowing' in the background)
I have 8 females living in a 50 litre tub. Originally there were just 6 VTs intended to spend the summer outside eating mozzies, but then I put two of my other females in there as I had some new pairs arriving.
The two newcomers have been living alone for a while now. However, both of them have had no problems settling into sorority life.
Usually everyone only clusters like this when they hear me tap the side as they think its feed time. If I look in and they don’t know I’m there, it’s almost impossible to find anyone.
They’re all very tame as you can see, and like to rest on my hand if I leave it in there. The tank is planted with water sprite and ambulia, and there are some PVC pipes and pieces of wood in there as well.
