Some Stocking questions...

So I've got a 25 gallon that currently has 2 female bettas and around 10-15 feeder guppies.

What other fish can I put in there?

I have around $50 that I'm taking to the pet store with me today so I can buy some new fish stuff for my birthday.

I know I should get some more bettas because the orange one is starting to stress the blue one out.

Thanks for the help!

None, you are over stocked as it is.

10 Guppy and 2 female Betta would put you at 100% for a 25 gallon.

Happy Birthday! Pet store sounds like a great place to spend it!

If you do want to buy something I would buy another 10-15 gal tank and add about 4 more female bettas. Female bettas are best housed in groups of 6 or more to spread out the aggression. But be warned, there are some female bettas that just can't live with other females. You can read more about housing female bettas together here: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/b...orities-29402/

If you have plants...a good amount of plants....you could sneak away with another betta...or two.

Like everyone said above you are stocked as it is...but plants always give a little leeway...

You would be better off moving some guppies to fit more bettas though. Less stress.
