Having a sorority scares me. I feel it's too risky. I know that a lot have people have had successful sororities, but I personally wouldn't want to come home to see that something had went wrong. I really your idea though! If I had a 40 gallon I would divide it into 2.5 gallon sections and put one Betta in each section.

Love the first idea, it would aslo be really cool if you put the sorority in the middle and put 1 or 2 males divided on either side!

Hehe, ya I thought that would be pretty cool. You would just have to make sure the dividers were secure so the males coudn't get into the sorority. Whatever you choose, be sure to post pics when its done!!

@MistersMom
Im leaning towards that, that way if the sorority doesnt work out, I'll only have 6 fish or so to deal with, rather than 20 x.x


@betaguy
I want some more males too I think ^^
I'd rather make one giant sorority rather than 2 as well c:


@ArcticRain
Im leery of it as well, which is why I would want to divide it. That way if something does go wrong, i dont have to deal with re homing 20 fish D:


@alysalouise
Its starting to grow on me more ^^


@BlackberryBetta
ooooo that could be super cool *A*
Id have to make sure i could divide it with enough room though, 2 males on each side sounds ultra fabulous :O


@MistersMom
Its definitely growing on me X)
I have the size of the tank mapped out on my desk, cant wait to pick up the tank and materials to divide it and really get started!


@BlackberryBetta
I for sure will, im going to be super neurotic about them being secure, DEFINITELY going to be using a lot of aquarium sealant to hold everything in place LOL

LOL!


Anyways, Im looking into dividers right now, and I should be able to do them quite easily, Im fortunate to have a walmart/michaels/various petstores all within driving distances c:



So I think I WILL be doing the sorority and males divided up
Just need to figure out how i want to divide up the tank and how big i want my sorority, along with where im going to get my girls.

Wish i had a breeder that was close by x.x

ArcticRain, if you piled a ton of plants in the tank you'd have less risk :) and trust me... I have one bully female I know! LOL.

Amd that's a good idea, emerald :) and I know... I think we all wish we had breeders near by xD

@Sena Hansler

I plan on getting a metric crap ton of plants for my sorority c:
Since I was originally going to make the whole tank one, I was reading every thread I could find on them XD

I KNOW
Granted, Im happy to have a Petco, Petsmart, and a smaller pet store (which had the most fabulous little white girl I plan on getting), but I'd feel so much better if the girls in my sorority were siblings x.x
