    Morning Folks! Over the past few weeks, I’ve been flirting with the idea of turning my fluval flex 15 tank into a betta sorority. Currently I only have one betta smaragdina female in the planted black water tank. Here are my concerns, I’m not entirely sure what stocking rate would be suitable...

    Betta sorority mystery illness

    Hello all, I've recently set up a new betta sorority in a 29 gallon aquarium. The original set up was just plastic plants and some small caves for hiding but I've recently added live plants and driftwood along with new substrate to aide in the plant growth. This is right around where all the...

    Betta Sorority - Filtering Problem

    I know the topic of betta sororities has been discussed on various forums ad nauseam. . . But I was hoping someone on here might have some advice! How do you filter a heavily planted tank? I've added tons of plants (silk) and decorations to give each female plenty of hiding spots, but I'm...

    Try for the "blackwater" look

    I very recently learned about black water aquariums and am trying to figure things out with a 10 gallon before possibly doing a 20 gallon. I decided not to mess with changing the pH but if it does change after adding leaves and driftwood, then that's okay. So far, I've added a bunch of oak...

    Poor Little Lapis D:

    One of my sorority girls, Lapis, is not in the best shape. :/ She's the smallest and I believe youngest out of the bunch (She's probably a juvi), and on top of all that the most recent. She's a inch long, with mustard gas coloration.   She isn't lethargic, she eats well, and isn't fin rotting...

I was thinking of a 25 or 30 gallon tank housing about 9 females. Would this setup be okay? Also, I can't decide what plants to use! I have a few in...
