on your tanks of 10 gallons and up you forgot to put you can have a betta tank with 6 or so females and 1 male. this is based purely on searching the web not from experiance so im not 100% sure.

Females need at least 20 gallons for a group of 4.

Mixing males and females for any period longer than breeding is asking for trouble.

Where did you find this info?

I love the stocking suggestions listed! Great work JM!

My only possible addition would be a stocking with Killifish (non Least) for tanks of 5-15.

I really like the ideas you have made in that article.

Is it possible to add an 8 gallon to the mix? Or are there any ideas for an 8 gallon?

Thanks. :)
