A male and female together will still fight - it’s basically the same as putting two males together. One will likely kill or severely injure the otherwhy would the male and female be a bad idea?
it can be difficult to be married sometimes
Well, I will have to watch them fight. I don’t want to have any more disagreements with my wife. She wouldn’t believe me that the betta would kill other fish.
A sorority would probably be a great thing for your son! Lots of flashy fish, and lots of activity (especially depending on ditherfish).Thinking about having a sorority
Ah okay, I don’t see a post mentioning that or pictures, unfortunately... I’d still have to highly recommend more than a ten for a sorority. I started mine in a ten as an experiment, to see if it’d work. A 20L is much preferableThe female is in my ten and the male is stilll in the 5.5 in my son’s room. I provided pics above
Are you married? Lol
yes, my tanks are cycled
we aren’t fighting. Just disagreeing
No, as I said before, I tried a sorority in a 10 gallon, and I very much recommend that you need at least a 20 gallon tank - and the long is preferable over tall. I think you may have confused me saying “20L” as “20 L” or 20 liters. 20L refers to 20 LongI’m not sure you have read, it isn’t ten liters.
Is 10 gallons a good size for a sorority?
I do have a twenty that would be a good home.

However, as we’ve already discussed, bettas are highly aggressive critters - if you are truly interested in starting a sorority tank, I recommend spending a while doing some research, or I can provide you with the steps And information I find lead to a successful setup. It’s a long processes with many preventative steps, however, sororities are a very delicate balancing act, and sometimes difficult to set up and prone to (sometimes deadly) failures. Even if you return your male betta, you will need to buy a much larger tank for this, at least a 20 long
It is actually a 5 gallon tank. I’m using a smaller heater now. But, still the ten gallon filter. Ugh
