K,
How you doing, old friend? Good to see you back on the boards. Are you into giants now?
Love to see some pics. I'll get back to you in PM.
Yes, i have to breed giants now, because i have few customers from the east cost who are asking for those kind. They dont want to buy from Thailand, too expensive. I dont have a lot, just starting to breed them 2 years ago. I have only 4 cement tanks for the giants, i'm very limited for colors.
Yeah, i am very busy, working my job and breeding betta is like having 2 full time job 247.

:V some of my bettas are in tanks under 2 gallons. i try hard not to do anything under a gallon, but sometimes, you're just not able. as long as the tanks are heated, and water is changed regularly, it's fine.

i mean, how do you think breeders keep their bettas? some, in mason jars WELL under a gallon. some in custom built barracks with each betta having .5 gallons. our pets do well in bigger tanks, but as Karpediem said, breeders can't keep their bettas in bigger tanks. it's not logical and wastes space. x-x

It maybe small for you because you dont have between 500 and 2000 betta like me. Each day i have to manage how i am going to keep those betta alive for my retailers from all over the place. The gorgeous ones who has a lot of value, i put them in 1g tank for my customers. There is some show quality that i keep for myself, i will never sell thoses unless you are my best friend then i will give you some to you :) .

I was referring to Owls who posted that 2 gallons is way too small. I have two of my bettas in 2.5 gallon tanks and one in a 1 gallon kk. I personally think 2 gallons is just fine. Can I be your best friend?

I hate people saying "You need at least a 5 gallon for a betta."

I wasn't attacking, but I thought he meant two in each one. It's pretty small.
