Betta Imbellis Question...

I've been reading that betta imbellis can be kept together. Does anyone know if it's true? I know some other types of wild bettas can live together but I don't know about these guys. Thanks.

While there are some species of betta's that can be kept in groups, Imbellis is unfortunately not one of them unless you have a heavily planted (or densely decorated) setup. I would say a 10g heavily planted or decorated to be the minimum for keeping more than 1 of them. Because while they are not as aggressive as b. splendens, they are still aggressive to each other. If you plan on keeping females, I don't see why the normal rules for a sorority wouldn't work also.

Thanks. I've watched some vids of them and they did seem more on the agressive side which is why I was asking. If I get one it will just be one male.
