New. Betta mom of three.

Hello, I just joined the site today in search of some helpful advice.
I did make a thread, but I see it takes a bit to be visible to the public, due to the fact that I had some images in the post. When it is up it's in the DYI section of the forum!

I currently have 3 betta fish, each dwelling in their own heated 5 gallon bins. I just buy clear plastic storage bins from Wal MArt, and use them because I find them so much more practical. They look great, they're durable, and I just love them. Tanks are awkward and hard to clean, and I only keep bettas, so it just works!

THey're all veil tailed bettas, named Brom, Gyarados and Murtagh. Yes, I am an Inheritence LOVER, so a lot of my pets are named after characters from the novels, lol.
I also am the mother of three female roborovski hamsters, Saphira, Darmani and Nidorino. I also have a 5 year old Yorkshire Terrier, Emma.
I love animals, and have rescued most of them from unfit homes, or poor situations. Such as surrendered litters.

I work in a pet store, and strive to make the animals who come into the store happy, and leave healthy and in good hands. I am currently upgrading a few grade 12 classes, as I had little room last semester before I graduated. I will be start pre-vet classes next fall. I am a huge animal lover, I have been a vegetarian for 7 years.

The thread I am awaiting validation from is regarding a DYI sump system I am trying to incorporate for my bettas. I know little about filtration systems, because I know bettas do not need them. However, with three different tanks, I am finding it tedious work to clean them all every 10 days and want to find a way to hook them all up, and make life a little easier!

This seems like a really good site, I hope to learn some new things, and get some good advice! Thanks!

Welcome to Aquarium Advice!
Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)
