Has anyone here successfully kept a male in with females?

I know one person who actually kept two males in a large heavily planted tank with a load of females and never had a problem. I just wondered if anyone else has?

I know OFL has, but this is not something you want to try. Ever. I got a mislabled male and my girls tore part of his anal fin in less than two hours.

Only the extremely experienced should try this. Please don't try it.

That is correct.....its not for new keepers and even experienced keepers it can be a challenge.....its not that it can't be done...its more that is shouldn't unless you have the correct setup and it won't work with every Betta either....

We discourage keeping mixed sex Betta tanks-more because people may misunderstand and think any ole setup will work or any Betta can be kept this way....It just doesn't work that away or that simple.....

Often when you hear of someone doing this...its a fluke..luck.....and usually temporary....
