I had options for the 2.5 and decided to go with 3 gal for the smaller fishies, and for the big boys, they need more space so they get the 5 gallon size.

Teeney, I ticked off the wrong one! D: I meant to click the 2.5, but I clicked 1.0-1.5. For the newspaper could you take away one vote for 1 gallon and add one for 2.5??

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

I said 2-2.5 for the average hobbyist but for a breeder less than a gallon-a gallon would work.

Haha yeah I will change the results- the poll ends tomorrow at 6 pm.

Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That's the problem.

Mo, what do you keep your bettas in?? I only have 1, so I have the space to keep him in a 5 gallon.
And, Thanks Teeney! :D

I have around seventy bettas and 2-3 more spawns coming up. Males .75 and some females get that size too or they get placed in the very large tank.. I have a huge sorority.. Jarred fry are in 32 oz containers until I sell them

(tangent!) Hey Mo, do you have any pictures posted of your breeding room/set up? I've been half-stalking your posts, and would love to see how you have your tanks set up :]
