That tank will not work out. You have too high of a bio-load with those fish, not to mention that the bettas will kill each other, as well as the gourami. This is a characteristic of bettas and Gouramis. Separate them NOW! IT will end in death for all but one fish, who will be badly injured.

A betta sorority (using only female bettas 4-7) does NOT work in that size tank you need a MINIMUM 20g LONG that is VERY DENSELY PLANTED /DECORATED with a TON of line of sight break up.. otherwise you're going to have a lot of stressed and soon dead fish.

I see at least 1 male betta in there (may be more if others are immature males), they can NOT be kept with females except short term for breeding (and female removed immediately after) keeping them together constantly will be stressful and lead to one being very beaten up or killed. Males should NEVER be kept with other males.

Also get rid of the gourami-there will be DEATH with that + any gender betta.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

I know that the last few posts are negative and probably not what you wanted to hear but they are valid points... On the positive side though, you've got a great excuse to set up 4 more tanks! Your fish will thank you!
