I do not, sadly. And my female is a 100% female. Shes bigger than my HM male. My guess is that she spent a year at petsmart[where i got her, since I hate seeing them in the cups. It depresses me], and is pretty used to being alone.
Right now I have her in a cup, floating in the new and improved tank. I drastically changed the scenery, and i'm hoping that after a few weeks in the cup, the girls will be used to seeing each other, and there will be no more fighting.
Is this recommended? Or no?
I think floating her is a good idea. Maybe poke some holes in the cup to help water circulation?
I would also like to suggest adding more decor/plants. Maybe with more hidey holes things will settle down.
Yeah. I'm still working on getting more plants. Some that float and some that sink, but also allow swimming room for my other fish.
Things have pretty much settled down since shes been in her cup. And, its a petsmart cup that they keep male betta's in, so... I cant poke a hole in it without the cup breaking. I saved all the cups, this way, when i move to florida, I can take all my betta's with me.
What should be the recommended time that she stay in the cup for?
Yeah, i saw that yesterday. During feeding time of all my girls, one of my girls[whom i now suspect was spawned with the other girl who is free-roaming along with her, as they show no aggression towards each other and pretty much dont stray far from eachother], decided it would be nice to leap at my finger, which had a unthawed bloodworm on it.
I dont know if im going to get the 10 gallon from Walmart.
I've also looked around on random betta forums/advice collums, and many people say it isn't a good idea to keep females in a 10 gallon tank. Is this true?
Random people at different places. I was looking up female betta sorority at school, clicked around, and saw many different fish hobbyist, some having a few years worth of experience, saying that a 10 gallon isn't good enough for females.
I'm intending to convince my mother to buy me 2 more females, along with large, dense plastic or silk plants. I intend to make the 10 gallon as recommended as needed, as I care deeply for all my fishies.
