Yep I'm a Betta Addict

Well I have now purchased 2 more Bettas. A new girl to add to the sorority once she's done with QT & a male. For the male I purchased yet another 10g tank. Here are some pics . . .

He obviously has some fin issues & a little SB but he's active & checking out his tank, he had one pellet today but I'll fast him tomorrow to see if that helps his SB.

She won't stay still long enough for pics . . . She's very active & has a healthy appetite.

Thank you. A year ago I bought my first one without doing any research, sadly he didn't make it. I have since learned so much on how to properly care for them & now have more than I probably should, LOL.

LOL. Yeah I didn't think I had room either but I was determined & figured out where I could put the tanks. The newest one went in the kitchen on a buffet cabinet that had knick knacks on it until yesterday. 2 of my 10g tanks are side by side on the fireplace hearth, needless to say the fireplace no longer gets used. I have one more spot I could put another 5.5g tank

Now that is what I'd call a dedicated Betta lover! I was actually looking around my house looking for tank spots. I just wish my toddlers could be trusted not to be so wild, otherwise I'd have many more options!!

Can they go in with other fish? I have a 125 gallon community tank right now with a couple gold fish and one tinfoil barb.
