1aqumfish Betta Maniac I read your thread all the way though, I am new here but have been in the hobby for a long time. I like to see Beta's in proper tanks. I am currently keeping mine in a 12.5gal hex. I like the 20 long. It's time for an update.

I'm not a big fan of splendens sorority tanks. If you want multiple bettas that aren't flashy male splendens, I'd recommend one of the other wild species that can be kept in larger groups (like albimarginata or channoides). I love my albi tank (20G-Long).

Betta Maniac Sorry. Been at Burning Man (no internet). He was $25, including shipping from Thailand. I'll drive 30 min to San Jose to pick him up next week and pay the transshipper $3. So, even with gas factored in, less than $40 all told. I think I should have him on Tuesday.

He's going in one of my 20G-long tanks. I'll trim it down a bit over the weekend to get ready for him (right now it has CPDs, kuhli loaches, and crystal shrimp).
