I have recently brought a 10 gallon tank with 3 betta females and 1 male do you guys think this is going to work I need a reply didn't know they were aggressive fish and is there any other species of fish i could mix in the tank with the bettas
I keep my male and female betta fish together in about a 3-5 gallon tank and they get along very good. They swim around together and sometimes just go their seperate ways. He flared at her right when I put her in the tank and that only was a few seconds and now they act like they've always been together. Its great for them being together and having each others ccompany.
Male and female Betta fish will look very similar when young
Female Betta Fish Characteristics and Male Betta Fish Behavior
Myth: Female bettas need other females for company and will become lonely and depressed without others of their kind. Reality: Anthropomorphism is a grave enemy of fish. Bettas are a solitary species; they do not need companionship and will not become "lonely" or "sad" without the company of other bettas. Overall, other bettas simply create territory disputes and a need for a pecking order. Sorority tanks can be safely formed, but please understand that it is done for the owner's preference and not for the needs of the fish involved. Those wishing to keep social fish would be well advised to consider a schooling species instead of bettas. Though female Betta fish are not as brilliantly colored as the males, they are colorful and available in avariety of colors and patters, just as the males are. They often have more rounded and snubbed tails, nothing asmagnificent as the long and flowing tails commonly seen in males.Unless interested in breeding Betta fish, many do not know very much about female Betta fish. While not as brilliant in appearance - their coloring is not as brilliant as that of male Betta fish, nor are their fins as spectacular - they do still have their strong points worth exploring and they are certainly worth keeping as pets. Particularly if you are interested in breeding Bettas, understanding the female species is vital to successful breeding.As opposed to males, female Betta fish can be kept in the same tank - often called a "community" - this is dueto the less aggressive nature of female Bettas. This does not, however, mean that female Bettas are not aggressive,they are just less aggressive than their male counterparts. All Bettas are territorial and aggressive, and thefemales are no exclusion.
