Thread: Insanity...

  1. #1

    Talking Insanity...


    0 Not allowed!
    So... me and the little woman went out yesterday to have a day together, get some food, take care of a couple things, and pick up a 10 gallon blank and a few other accessories for the aquarium... and we came home with 7 _SEVEN_ Bettas and a helluva lot more accessories than planned, heh.

    4 beautiful females
    2 stunning crown males
    1 amazing veil male

    I'll be putting up pics soon of the new tank with the 4 fems and the 3 males in their new temporary homes.

    Anyone else have this kinda insanity?????

    Are you planning on putting all these fish in a 10 gallon tank? If so, they will immediately start fighting and kill each other, and the survivors' fins will be ripped to shreds.

    I agree. you would need atleast 50 gallon to pull that combination of and even then it would require an very well designed setup designed to reduce aggression and allow each fish to have their own territory.

    I would not recommend anyone to keep more then one male that are not very familiar with how to setup an aquarium to reduce aggression.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    No no no... The males will have their own tanks. The females will be in the 10 for now. It's going to be HEAVILY planted in about a month. And, as you can see from the pic, the females are TINY.

    Here's a quick pic of the setup. 10 gallon, 2/3 Eco Complete, 1/3 white marine sand. Water's conditioned with Start Right and EasyBalance as well as bacteria in the Eco Complete. The new Penguin 100 is running cycled media and a DIY flow diverter. The pants are Java Moss, Dwarf Baby Tears, and Cardinal Plant.



    Please, guys, I'm not a fool. I'd not put all seven of those in my 135 gallon, let alone a 10. :(

    PS: If there's overt aggression the girls will be separated.

    Here's a pic of one of our new male bettas. He's in a temporary home right now but we'll soon hook him up with his own domain. :)

    He is very pretty!!!!! I like the tank you have for the females, it looks like it will be very nice when it is all grown up.

    Glad to hear they weren't all going in the same tank. That would have really been insanity. They all look awesome. Very understandable that you could not resist buying them.

    Stunning crown. Glad to hear that you get them for different tanks.

    Sorry for assuming the worst but you should only see the insanity we see here sometimes.
