Bettas and Mollies
 
Well, I have always loved bettas and my albino female died today. I have 3 extra tanks and I want to set the up for bettas. I also have a 10g tank and I want to stock it with mollies and some others. Or, use my divider and put two bettas in there. I just want some ideas and pics to help me decide what to do. Thanks :)

I have also been thinking of just getting my three bettas in the bowls, and buying a pair of dwarf gouramis for the 10g. I need some opinions and examples XD Thanks :)

I think I made up my mind, I just need some pics of examples and advice. I think I am gonna put ghost shrimp in one of the betta-tanks, and a pair of bettas in the other two. A pair of dwarf gouramis in the 10g, and when my tetras die, mollies in the 5g. I found a 5g bowl to put a goldfish in, and I think I will be done stocking and everything in about a month. But still, any advice or tips ?

I would think that a 5g tank for mollies might be small. I had a trio in a 15g several years ago, and I couldn't see them in anything smaller. There are other members here with more experience with mollies though, I'm sure they will have advice for you.

The mollies that my store carries are very small. I bought about 9 from them before and they were in a 55g. They didnt even grow, and lived for 1 year. I think they are inbred or something, because they arent normal size XD

My brother has a 10 gallon with 8 white mollies. They do fine with the standard weekly water changes. He certainly shouldn't add any more, though.

Three of the fry from my balloon molly went to what used to be my 10 gallon that I gave to my son. I'm confident that mollies are easy keepers. So obviously in my experience, 8 is the max in 10 gallons. I, personally, would have stopped at... hm.. 6, I suppose.
