Betta Fries

So, I have a bunch of betta fries that my friend gave me to keep since he had no idea on how to raise them. Was wondering, is it possible to keep all the fries together until adult hood. NEVER separating them, I learned from somewhere that if you keep them together from birth to adulthood, they wont fight and kill each other.

You can,but you still need to jar some males if they get aggressive.

From what I understand, the fry cannot be overly aggressive and you must also provide enough room for each fry so they do not compete for territory. Hopefully someone more educated in this will clarify your doubt better.

If you try to keep them together, keep in mind that as soon as your males and females are old enough, they will start spawning and start the process all over again.

So the fries are pretty healthy, they are at a 4 month old? standpoint where coloration and sex can be determined. Anyways I removed all the males and sold them to friends and family :). Keeping like 15 females in my 20g long :P
