New guy. :)

I'm a novice more or less, had tanks growing up and now have my own in my room. I'm exploring the ideas of getting larger, more elaborate tanks in the near future and am looking to build up as much knowledge as possible.

My current tanks:
3X 1 gallon with a betta of varying varieties. ( 1 white opaque marbled half moon, 1 blue and orange half moon,and 1 white bodied, red tailed crowntail.)
1X 10 gallon with 4 guppies, 1 mini crab, and 1 black bodied, red tailed crowntail.

to AA!

Wait all those bettas are in a one gallon tank? Or am I reading that wrong?

No. Each of my bettas has a 1 gallon tank to himself besides my favorite who is in the 10 gallon. I thought of experimenting with putting my 2 super mellow ones into the 10 gallon together but decided it's against their nature to coexist. I've heard of 2 males being safely housed together but I'm personally not going to try it. Some of the breeders I've spoken with have told me of keeping a pair but I have even had bad luck keeping a m/f pair together.

Ah okay, knew I was reading the desctription wrong!

Males safely coexisting would have to be a really big and really heavily planted tank breaking all lines of sight, which would look more like an overgrown jungle than a tank.

Pairs are also hits and misses I've heard as well. Good luck if you try to do any betta combos!

Don't we all have our dream bettas? I dream of a pair of that one orange and black betta I saw at the LFS with a blue and yellow female. I'd be lucky if I ever found them both in the same store!
