new kind of betta barraks

this will hold 46 male bettas, and water constantly circulating. each section stands only 8 inches tall, 4 inches wide, and 6 inches deep. the entire structure 4 feet long, 2 feet deep, and 8 inches tall. it has a compacity of 19.948 gallons ( so 20 gallons) and .83 gallons to each fish. it has a sump in the actual enclosure and that takes up one section. another would be used for the pump, which shouldnt be that big anyways. here are some drawings i made. i want to get into betta breeding and i get the legistics of it, but what would i build this out of?

Oh my gosh! I wouldn't even know where to start with that. It seems very complicated, an interesting. Did you design it yourself?

I don't want to discourage since I'd love to see it in action, but it may not be worth it. It sounds like it's for betta breeding and most breeders use a different setup that's probably a lot cheaper:

my thoughts were its alot easier to move the water this way, and i could filter all the compartments. my thoughts : better water quality=better and faster growing fish. and for a 15 year old who is very involved in theater, church, and school, i need something that needs minimum matinince and it would be easy to clean

You could do something like this with a 40b, some glass from lowes and some silicone. Like I said, it won't be very cost efficient, but it would work.

I'd say you'll need several for betta breeding.

I would advise against breeding betta since it's pretty labor intensive.

I am sure you could. Breeding bettas is not as easy as breeding guppies however. Let us know what you decide on for the barracks.

That's pretty cool that you supply a lfs with guppies! So if you bought some, your just buying your own back! Lol
