I have four. One is my fiances, he is in a 5 gallon heated and filtered. I have two that share a divided 10 gallon, heated and filtered. And I just brought home another boy today who is in a 2.5 gallon which is heated but not filtered...

I would probably have more, but I told myself 4 would have to be the limit because I don't think that they can all get the attention they need if I had more than 4....

I have 15.
6 live together in a 20G long with live plants and 2 rabbit snails, 1 tiger nerite and a few trapdoor snails. 6 males are in 2 divided 10 gallons, I have one in a 5 gallon, one in a 15ish gallon storage bin with 2 juvie clown plecos and one in a 3 gallon kritter keeper which I am using as a hospital tank. I have like 4 of the kritter keepers but its easier to use divided tanks.

Just one for now....maybe I'll get a second one(I had my eye on this little crown tail girl in petco)...she was so cute and pretty! most likely not. xD

Fred currently lives in a half gallon bowl. HOWEVER, I just ordered the 5 gallon fluval chi, so that's going to be his new home after it gets cycled. :D So maybe little Lucy will live in a one gallon bowl ahha. Idk. My mom would be mad xD (she'll get over it). She told me that I was going to kill fred if i kept chainging the water and i explained to her all the ammonia stuff and nitrate and nitrite and ooh i felt so scientifical...and only on this forum for a few days xD I've learned soooo much thanks to all of you wonderful betta folk.

I have 2. One female in a filtered 5.5, moderately planted.
I do a 25%-50% change on that once a week.
My male is in a 2 gallon drum bowl. moderately planted but not filtered.
For that one I take out about 1/3 of the water once a week.

Hopefully I will be setting up another 2 gallon after the holidays. Otherwise I know for sure I will be setting up a 10-20 gallon for a class project, but I won't be able to stock it with live fish until around March.

Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?

2 are in .5 gallon bowls - 100% changes every to every other day not heated or filtered.
The ones in the 1 & .5 gallons are females along with one in the 10 gallon and 2 of the 3 i have coming next week, will be moved over to a 26g tank here in a couple days as soon as I get the fish that are already in it to a friend, then both the 10 & 26 will be heated and filtered. the 26 will have weekly 25-50%changes depending on water quality after i make the move.

Today started out with 12. I had 7 females and 5 males. Then I stopped by the pet store today for supplies. Yeah right! So i see 2 cute but tiny female HMs. Bring them home and then find out my spawn worked out and I have a bunch of fry now too. My wife thinks I have a problem! Thank God she is cool with it and likes bettas.

I'm sure I will probably forget someone but currently I have 19 bettas, if I'm counting right. The splendens are all in their own tanks ranging from 3-10 gallons, with the exception of my two surviving sorority girls who are together in a 14 gallon. Then I have my groups of wilds in 20 gallon long tanks. I am about to set up two more 10 gallon tanks as well.
