Betta Addict saying Hi!

Hello, AA, my name is Kris, (though you can call me Tiki as well) and I am addicted to keeping bettas. I currently have 2 males (one crown, one delta) and two females, all in an equally divided 20L gallon tank.

I also own a 55 gallon, but, due to limited space, it is not set up right now. I hope to get it set up post-College.

Speaking of that, when I'm not watching my fish, I am studying web and graphic design, reading or writing short stories and novels, drawing, and hanging out with my also fish-addicted friends. I also have been working at a movie theater for over 4 years and counting.

I just wanted to drop by and say hi to the AA community. Hopefully, I can learn some more about owning aquariums, as I am still very much a novice.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. As for pics, I actually just cleaned the tank, so they're in their cups, but I can show you the tank set up.

I love bettas, they have so much personality. Like my biggest male, the delta, he's so laid back and not aggressive, while my crown male picks a fight with everyone. XD

Thanks. I tried to give them all a separate theme for their section using the decor I had.

And I did a full cleaning, meaning I washed all the rock and the plants and the like and completely changed the water. I do it every-so-often so I know everything's clean, and I re-condition the water with Betta Safe.

I normally do a partial change, but I figured cleaning it completely every-so-often, then letting it stabilize for 24 hours wouldn't hurt. When I had smaller tanks that's what I'd do, or else the water would get cloudy. Though, this is the biggest tank I've had, so maybe that doesn't apply to bigger tanks.
