Question: I have really grown an interest to the female Betta. These Japanese fighting fish are super cool when you get down to it. The male is so aggressive that it cant be in a tank with others and the female is totally the opposite. Anyways.. how many females can I put together inside one tank or aquarium at once? I want to get as many as I can in one tank. Please help me figure this out. Thanks!

The Siamese fighting fish (), also sometimes colloquially known as the betta, is a species in the family which is popular as an fish. Bettas can be territorial fish and are prone to high levels of aggression towards each other. Two males in close proximity will almost always attack each other, if they do not have the ability to escape this will usually result in the death of one or both of the fish. Female bettas can also become territorial towards each other if they are housed in too small an aquarium. It is typically not recommended to keep male and female bettas together, except temporarily for breeding purposes which should always be undertaken with caution.

Myth: Female bettas are peaceful and can always be housed together or in tropical community tanks.
Reality: Many female bettas are equally as aggressive as males - with added speed and mobility due to their short finnage! Sorority tanks are only possible in a well-planted environment under highly specific population and gallonage conditions, and even then injuries and deaths are commonplace. Likewise, female bettas will often attack and injure community fish, especially ones who resemble bettas. Male and female bettas are almost equally solitary; the safest way to keep females, like males, is alone. If you do wish to keep a sorority or community tank with females, you must monitor closely, and read up on setting up such a tank safely. Question: I have a 20 gallon aquarium with five female Betta fish. I want to possibly breed the bettas. What would happen if I stuck a male Betta in with the females? People warn me they are aggressive but dont they have to be together to mate and breed.. Needing some input here on what I should do. I am good with my bettas and they are healthy right now. What is your experience with putting them together as tank mates? Finding female Betta fish that are good mates can be a tricky process. Male Bettas seem to prefer females with a red color and are not attracted to yellow Bettas. However, not all personalities mesh well together so be prepared if your male and female Bettas don't mate.Two female bettas may tolerate each other, provided they have sufficient hiding places. Try having them loose together in the large tank, but keep a close eye on their behavior. Some individuals are feistier than others and may never cope with having free access to another betta, although they’ll probably be fine with other fish species. If they carry on fighting, add a partition.
