Ok so I hear that Petco is having another $1 per gallon sale and I have a giftcard I need to spend there. I'm wondering if this would be a good time to get another 10G tank and do some rearranging. My current tanks:
20G - currently holding 4 male bettas (divided)
10G - currently holding 5 female bettas (sorority)
10G - holding Hurley (giant HMPK)
3 three-gallons holding 1 male betta each
I've tried different set ups for 4 of my guys attempting to get them to stop tail biting and so far nothing has worked. Whether they are alone, can see another betta or not, they keep biting those tails. I've kept their water clean so no infections or other issues.
I'm thinking of making the 20G into a sorority tank and adding a few more girls (wonder if this would mess up my current 5 too much, if there would be too much aggression since these 5 have been together for 4-5 months now) or as long as I add them the same way I did to begin with, with all the new space, things would be fine?
Then want to divide the new 10G and the remaining 10G either 2 or 3 ways each. And place each male in the best place to minimize aggression. The 4 that are in the 20G now have all gotten used to having a neighbor that they can't get to :)
More thoughts/updates to come...
