    Hi! New here. This is my first post. I just started a betta sorority yesterday and I'm curious if their behavior seems normal. I left them in small tanks close to each other a couple weeks then floated them in the tank overnight before releasing. There seems to be some fine nipping but I'm not...

    Hello! So recently we just got a new 36 gallon tank which is a huge upgrade from our small 5 gallon tank and I'm trying to see if I can get a betta sorority to start living in the tank. I've had betta fishes before in the 5 gallon tank but stopped getting them after a few years since you...
  4. Breeding Betta Fish
    Breeding Program help! I have 3 males that I'd like to breed to my koi female but I dont know which one would give me the best result for what I'm looking for. I'm really wanting to breed "galaxy koi" bettas, so basically kois with other colors besides the traditional colors. I have my...

    A week ago, I started a little betta sorority. I also got a male, who lives happily in his own separate ten gallon tank complete with live plants, sand, a leaf hammock, and and a little pleco pal who helps keep his tank clean. Today, I woke up and fed both tanks some frozen blood worms. I...

    Hi all! So I've got an established betta sorority in a 10 gallon tank right now. There are 5 females and they've been together for about 7-8 months now. They are getting larger and I feel the need to upgrade them so they have more room. I've got a 55 gallon community tank set up and I...

    HI, this is my first post on the forums. I have a 55 gal fairly heavily planted sorority with 7 females and my very peaceful male, Earl. I know that everyone says don't house a male with females unless for breeding purposes, but there is no violence in the tank, they are much quicker than...

    My question is how do you introduce new female betta/s to a betta sorority? I seriously cannot find the answer to this question anywhere! I've heard that you have to change the decor and plants then re-add them with the new betta/s, but I don't want to change my decor and plants.... :| I like...
  9. Betta Fish Compatibility
    I'm starting my first female betta sorority and I had a few questions. 1. How much plants does the tank have to be? Because I already have about 10 small plants (I'm planing to buy more w/ different sizes) 2. How much caves/shelter should I get? I have a 2 small artificial caves and I'm going...

    What I have in mind right now is: 8-10 female bettas A shoal of pygmy/dwarf cories (12-16) Shoal of otos (8) Cherry shrimp (I'd start with 6 I suppose) I'm also thinking of getting a shoal of rasboras, but I don't know how close I am to overstocking with these numbers ^

    I recently started to feed my bettas each 3 pellets by finger every day and now whenever I clean the tank they nip and swim around my arm. Is this normal? I don't mind one nipping at me but all 5 at once is a little much. I'm just wondering is this normal? Are they doing this because they are...
  12. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have a sorority with 5 female bettas in a 15 gallon tank. I put the fish in last week and they all get along no problem but I've noticed that 2 of them recently have fin damage. I put in API Betta Fix for the time being. Should I put the fish with fin damage in a separate tank until they heal...

    Lone Ranger first, since, well he did come first ;) and he has his own 2.5 tank: Dont worry, all the tanks have lids and now for the sorority tank, and each of the 5 girls (fingers crossed they all learn to get along, and stay healthy!) In order from most aggressive to least: First up...

    I moved my seven girls from my 55 gal. community tank to a 10 gallon tank. Does this look "planted" enough? I have real and fake plants. I will probably plant some of the floating wisteria in the substrate once it develops roots.
  15. Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have a divided 10 gallon tank with a male betta on one side and a female betta on the other side. I also have a 55 gallon community tank where I have 7 females. It's been difficult to keep the sorority fairly balanced in the big tank because I was advised that there needs to be more females in...
