I have heard mixed opinions but I want to try it with 5 female bettas. I know this is controversial, and fishkeepers could go back and forth on this for pages and pages supporting both sides. But I kindly ask that instead of telling me I can't do it, please only reply if you're willing to help me make it work. I've already done my research and made up my mind I've been in the hobby for a year and a half and if it doesn't work out, I can find them great homes. For this to work, the tank will need to be heavily planted. I already have some water sprite that's growing inches every week, so I'll be cutting some stalks off and making a little forest in one corner. Also, I plan to add some anubias nana from my 26g, as well as some various plants from liveaquaria or my LFS. As for decorations, there's a piece of spiderwood (that I'd like to coat with christmas moss someday) and a rock cave formed with some random stones. I have another hidey hole decoration that I will add as well. This should provide sufficient cover for the shrimp, AND provide enough spots for the girls to claim their own territories. Currently my 10g is stocked with the following: 2x male endlers 4x guppy fry 8-15x cherry shrimp and blue shrimp as well as shrimp babies 3x mystery snails 1x nerite snail The guppies will be going to the LFS, and I'm hoping to leave the endlers in the tank. I'm attached to both of them (Indiana Jones and Melon ) and I'd prefer not to give them away. If the girls start picking on them I might risk putting my little buddies in the 26g with a juvenile angelfish. That's the last resort since she might eat them someday. Anything else that might be helpful? I'll probably rescue the girls from Petco and Petsmart, but it depends on what I find. If I only find a couple one day, I'll have to leave them in the cups until I get five. Thank you!
