3 male bettas in one tank update

Hello everyone,

Just thought I'd give everyone an update. In my 48g blackwater, planted aquarium, I put in 3 male bettas about a month ago (2 veiltails, 1 crowntail).

Since then, all the fins on the bettas have regrown, and they eat together and swim with each other. No fighting at all. I have since added 2 apistogramma viejitas, 1 common pleco, and an altum angelfish (I will give him and the common pleco up when they get too big for my tank, but for now are enjoying the tank thoroughly). Tank is crystal clear (although very dark due to my peat). I keep my pH around 5.7. Plants are taking off like crazy due to my CO2.

I'm very happy with my result. I was thinking of adding a 4th or 5th male betta. I have the room for it in the tank since it's quite large with minimal fish. I run an E-HEIM ECCO 60 canister and Fluval C3 HOB. Water is at 81 degrees.

Is there a chance you could post a picture of your tank? I'd be interested in seeing what type of environment you've created to allow three male bettas to live together! I've always heard that you must only have one per tank, but it sounds like you've got very different results.

You learn something new every day!

Awesome! I've been waiting for an update! Careful about adding a fourth though, the bettas already have their territory staked out, it would be unfortunate if adding another turns them all against each other again

I don't know. I never see them in the same spot. They swim together throughout the whole tank. It's funny watching them with the altum angel.

All 3 bettas are doing great. They eat and swim together! There is no aggression amongst them and are getting along really well with my altum angel! It's so exciting!
