Bitten by "the bug"

I went to Petco last night to get a few more things for the 5 gallon I'm preparing and of course I had to spend a few minutes looking at the bettas... I saw 3 males that were all unique and beautiful colors and a couple of really pretty females, too. I can't get any more tho because I don't have the room! I've been looking for a house, and one of the things I'm most excited about is having a 20 gallon for a sorority and then being able to have 2 or 3 other male bettas, a big community tank, a cat, and a parakeet. lol

Thanks! Nah, I'm gonna go with the whole mortgage thing right off the bat. Now is the best time to buy a house. About 3.5% down and 3.5% interest.

Bitten by "the betta bug" too...

I went to Petco last night to pick up a filter sponge for my boy's tank, and I took a peek in the betta aisle (told myself I shouldn't or I'd want a new fish; I was right). And I saw a beautiful blue halfmoon marble that I instantly loved. I do have an extra tank that he would be happy in. I just want to see that beauty stretch out his fins and tail; he shouldn't be in the small little cup at the store!

I'm so tempted to go back and get him if he's still there, but I don't think my parents would be too thrilled if we have to transport two fish when they move me in to my new dorm this fall. So I'm super conflicted!

Try having 6 males and on the look out for another interesting one. xD I told myself that my PK bazooka Joe would be my last boy, but I rescued the boy in my avatar against my better judgement.

Now is the time

Kind of. I'm in an apartment suite style with 4 of us, but still on campus. Suprisingly the restriction is 20 gallons! I almost took my 20 gal long, but I was like WAY to much water to lug around. So I am taking my 10 gal (divided) and my 2.5 gal. Much easier! 5 gals is quite a low restriction I would have snuck in my 10 gal. When the RA comes to check, "how big is that tank?" "Uh... 5 gallons." "Okay." (I don't think they'd really see the difference in size but who knows!)
