  1. New female seems strange

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hey all. I'm new to the forums and very excited to be here. I week ago I got a female betta from a pet store that is pretty bad at caring for them. She had been there a few weeks so I decided I couldn't let her stay there anymore and brought her home. She spent a week in quarantine and seemed...
  2. Sorority Question

    Betta Fish Care
    I've got a planted 10 gal which was the home of my previous sorority with 3 sisters, but this is my first time attempting a sorority with some unrelated gals. (more info about it on the journal here). I decided to remove one of my "girls" after speculation that it was likely a mismarked boy...
  3. Sorority Journal

    So, to make a long story short my old sorority setup was 3 girls who were from the same spawn and sadly when Baby passed I had to separate her sisters because there was too much fin nipping. I missed seeing girls, though, so I thought I'd try to set up a more "robust" sorority with more girls...
  4. friendliest sorority

    Betta Pictures
    I like to pet my betta fishes and they let me. Out of the 4, Rahab(blue crowntail) is the friendliest and hangs around me a lot. The other identical 3; Esther, Mary and Rachel(red veiltail) likes to chase my nails and sometimes nip my fingers. LOL!
  5. Hello!

    Meet the Betta Keepers
    I have surfed on this site multiple times in the past for betta information but decided to be a member today. So, hi everyone!!! hehehh :-P I had a male crowntail betta almost 3 years ago and he died about 6 months. 2 months ago, I decided to do a female sorority tank and so far so good. I...
  6. Are my girls killing my new snail?

    Other Fish
    So I finally got that sorority started, and had to put Saya behind a barrier. The new additions including Gary the snail. He hasn't come out of his shell since I bought him and it seems like when he tries to, one of the bettas is right next to his shell. I don't know if I should put him on...
  7. Sorority in 5g?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    My boyfriend got me a 5.5 gallon tank for Christmas with the idea that we would be able to have a sorority of bettas. We already have one guy, Pez, who lives in a 1.5 gallon bachelor pad. Is a 5 gallon too small for a betta sorority? If not, how many females could safely live together? He and I...
  8. Sorority in a 20gal

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I've heard many people on this site say that a minimum of 10gal is needed to keep a sorority, i was wondering if it would work in a tank with the dimensions of 60cm long, 30cm deep and 40cm tall (or 23.62 x 12.2 x 16.14 inches) roughly. Since it's double the minimum volume it sounds like it...
  9. Female sorority question, need to move one of the girls.

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    So far the girls have been getting along pretty well. However, one of my crowntails, who seems to really be turning into the leader, is picking on one of my veiltails. My veiltail is already missing a small chunk of fin. I obviously need to separate the two. The rest of the girls seem to leave...
  10. Sorority tank

    Planted Betta Tanks
    So I just started a community tank and I'm thinking I want to turn it into a sorority tank, how would I go about adding the other females and how many should I get?
  11. Sorority question

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I just got 5 females for my 10 gallon tank (hiding spots/plants) I was wondering, after the floating process, do you put them in 1 at a time or just dump them all in or what, exactly?
  12. Another nut starting a sorority..

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So, I'm fishless cycling this 20 gallon tank right now. I love bettas, and have seen videos, and heard that it's possible to have sororities. What I DIDN'T that I'm probably making a huge mistake. Unfortunately, I didn't start reading the actual experiences of other people until AFTER...
  13. Betta Imbellis at petstore labeled female?!?!? :0

    Betta Fish Care
    I just recently organized a sorority with 5 female bettas… or so i thought. I noticed one of the girls had a long skinny body but disregarded it. "She" is especially aggressive. She is the alpha. Currently i have "her" in a cup floating in the tank. Before the other female bettas cowered in the...
  14. Sorority emergency!

    Betta Fish Care
    Okay, I'm going to make this quick! I set up a 4 girl sorority today and one of them is really mean. Shes attacking the others so i took her out and the others seem ok. Now what? Do i take her take and get a nicer one? Why is she doing that? How do they act at first when you put them in??
  15. Sorority Finished!

    Betta Pictures
    Hi guys! Thanks so much for helping me set up my first sorority. I went out and got a bunch of plants. Then, I rescued 7 girls from Petsmart and Petco. Introducing: Nymphedora. She is pretty freaked out in this picture, but when relaxe and happy she is a lovely lavender color. I think she is...
  16. Newbie On Sororities

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    (Hope this is in the right section!) Hello all c: I have a 50g tank and I'm looking into hopefully putting a sorority in it. I'm not new to owning Bettas though I've never had a female before so I was hoping for some advice or links to some helpful guides or something, anything so that I dont...
  17. Update on the ultimate sorority project

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Ok so a week or so ago I posted a thread on here about my plans to make an ultimate betta sorority. Well I have officially dove into it (at least financially) so I know over the next 2 moths this project WILL be coming together :) I visited Petco yesterday just by habit of looking, which if your...
  18. Female betta community tank?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I used to have a split 5 gallon tank setup for my male and female betta. They could see each other through the barrier and it gave them something to do. However, I recently stumbled upon a brand new Fluval Edge 6 gallon for $30 so I'm going to set up my male in that. The problem is, she seemed...
