14 or 38 gallon..what do you think?

hey folks. so I am getting a 38 gallon this weekend. now I am deciding where to put my CT who is in the dining room. I have several options,wondering what would be best for him.

option 1: 20 gallon split for 4(or 3) bettas
option 2: put him in the 14 with the julii corys
option 3: 38 gallon with many other fish,possibly corys,cherry barbs,danios and pencilfish


if i could put him in the 14 and he doesnt pick on the corys,that would be great. that way i dont have to pull out my 20 and have to buy more things for it. i mean i dont mind,but its gonna be a pain lol. anywho.whatcha think??

3 gallon male betta
10 gallon male betta
12 gallon QT
30 gallon
1 Pl*co, Brochis Splenden,False Julii Cory,Pygmy Corys,Female Betta,Harlequin Rasbora,Tetras
55 gallon Possible Barb tank?!

Going with the 3-5 watt per gallon rule it should be ok, However, it really depends on your climate. Mine is kinda cold so I need 5 watts per gallon, but if your room temp is normally higher than mine then 3 watts will do just fine. Good luck with the new tank!! Have fun :)

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )
