Betta Sorority
 
Okay. So I got 4 female bettas from PetsMart today in hopes of starting a sorority in my 55 gallon. I have 2 angelfish in there already but I have an alternative home for them if the are not fond on the bettas. The females are not related at all and I I have to separate them I will. Tomorrow I am planning on running out and grabbing some taller plants to divide the tank up some more.

Here are some pictures..

I literally just bought them and I think a couple have bad fins but I'm excited. Any tips and tricks are welcomed!

They're all super stressed right now...

Pretty girls. I recommend upping the number to 5. Odd numbers seem to do better.

Alright thanks! My mom has a dark red girl in a 5 gallon I might steal from her :) she wants to get rid of that tank anyways haha

Here's their tank. I do have a section devoted to a male betta... I hope that's not too much stress on anyone. And the angels have an alternate home if they don't work out. Oh and like I said. I'm going to get some taller plants for the tank tomorrow

Also I'd up the number of plants! My girls love to sleep in then.

Louise0328 01-11-2014 05:44 PM

I added a couple taller plants and some more shorter ones. I grabbed them out of the 5 gallon since we're taking it down.. I don't know if you can tell but they're there haha

OMG the one on the bottom left looks exactly like a sparkling gourami. I don't want to say for sure for fear of being wrong but it really looks just like one.

Haha, that's weird! Well she was sold as a female betta in her cup soo... unless that breeder also breeds sparkling gourami's and got them mixed up then I don't know how that could be :)

On a different note, I let everyone out a while ago and they have been checking the tank out. The white one with the fins tipped in pink has colored up to completely pink! She's gorgeous, I love her. My mom's red one is doing fantastic and looks gorgeous. The brightest blue one's stress stripes have disappeared and she looks great. Those three are the most active out of the five. The first girl I posted a picture of is just meandering around. She'll kinda float done and then slowly drift back up to the top, then float back down. She has extremely prominent stress stripes, but I'm hoping they'll lessen overnight. And the girl in the bottom left picture is doing.. alright. She likes to hang out in the top corner by the males section and doesn't really move a lot. She has light stress stripes but It could be because she is young. She has colored up a bit, showing off a royal blue or lavender color, depending on the light.
