Yep I will send her a email, she had a fake planted sorority I believe?

I believe he has em in a 75 gallon?
I don't remember but I think you may be right. Her's did really well. I think she had somewhere between 10-13. She got them all at once so that they would all establish territory at the same time when being added, which worked out well.

I think @RainBetta has a sorority? She hasn't been active lately though.
Wouldn't they have trouble going from top to bottom im that constantly getting air?
@david1978 got told his would drown in his 75 gallon by a fish store employee hahaha

Yea they don't drown. Its a common misconception but betta don't actually need to breath air. In a properly oxygenated environment they could go forever with out breathing air. They can breath air but its not a must.

So, I have lost some guppies over the past week for unknown causes ugh. But, still no nipping on any girls! The kuhlis are happy sifting and the girls sometimes search for food with em. Tomorrow i'm going out to get live plants (dont tell my parents ), 12 kuhli loaches (Because why not?) a zebra snail and some other goodies! Im thinking about maybe even getting some more bettas one day. But im not sure how well that works to add bettas at differnt times. I also have to get a new photo of Jasmine. She has turned into a koi!

I think if I took them out and redid the entire tank destroying the territory should work? But for now ill stick to the stocking of kuhli loaches and 4 bettas.

This photo has a lot to it:
A noodle photo bombing. But thats a female noodle whos actually getting some eggs in her. ( I hope for baby noodles) Then you can see Jasmine turned into a Koi? Kinda a weird color. Then you can see the tip of Daisys fins have gone black. Then also the guppies have been getting nipped by the bettas.

No judgeing I gotta clean the tank But here is Jade hideing. I may take her out and she has not grown at all and hides the whole time. She clearly does not like being with the other girls. Jasmine was once x2 SMALLer then her and Jasmine is now x2 LARGEr then her. Thats a issue.

The noodles have been sexed. This is my female kuhli who has small green eggs! Now for her to lay them with out any bettas eating them.

Update on Girls:
Still no nipping and it has been 3months! How ever Jasmine has been very dominant and Jade hides a lot. I have to fix this but right now I got other issues. (Issues such as my 10 gallon leaked onto my floor last week and I got tanks all over the house )

An over due update: Jade passed away awhile ago, no clue why. (Runts are scary cause you dont know whats going on inside them) I have added all the noodles as well took my friends loach who actually has a deformed spine from birth! His name is hunchback lol. Everyone seems to be getting along fine still.
