Question How many females in 10 Gallon?

I've been planning to get another 10 gallon to start a little sorority but I still don't know how many females I should put. Any advice? Thanks.

I just asked Dramaqueen this about a day or two ago. She says max six but six is pushing the bioload. No less than four though. Looks like Captain America as a name is popular. My fiance' named mine that. Hes the guy in my avatar. He's still pretty young.

I wouldn't even risk four - five is a much safer number, but six is even better. Definitely go for six. :)

I would suggest getting your twitching guy in the half gallon a good size home before trying this. How is he doing anyway?

He's fine. Not twitching anymore but I'm still not positive that he's better.

5-6 but make sure there are lots of hidey spots! I'm planning on starting up a 6 girl sorority in March. :)

Aww... you keep a betta in a half gal? That's sad.

Anyways, 6 is a perfect number. I have seven, but thats because i have a whack of plants in there, and I got a deal on 7.

That's kinda rude but he LOVES it. He has room to swim at least it's better than being in a bag with an inch of water (HINT HINT TO PETSTORES) If I put him divided in the 10 gallon he might leave some sickness on it and my other fish will get sick and please I don't want tht.

On the other hand: Thanks!

But it really isnt much room to swim, and I imagine it's difficult for you to heat it properly. If you get him a 1g+ setup, you can get a heater for him. They don't make heaters for half gallons. :/ I didn't mean to sound rude, but I just think its unfortunate he doesn't get the space to be as active as he could be.
