Just curious as to how many bettas people have?
What size tanks (No judgement allowed! Please be polite)? Im just curious because it will help me get an idea of the work load involved in multiple bettas...
Are they filtered?
How often do you provide water changes and what %?
Feel free to share pics too, I always love to see pics :)
Im thinking of setting up a 5 gal as a long term winter project but i cant decide if I really want to take on a 3rd betta. I have extra mosses I decided to not add to my current tanks and a few extra plants so I cant help but think it would be a good use of my extra tank and plants.
Id like to cycle the tank, heavily plant it and add one betta and some shrimps eventually.
I have 2 bettas right now. A male and a female. The male, (Lebron) is in a cycled and heated 3.5 tank right now. I do a 75% change every week. My female, (Winnie) is in a QT jar waiting for her 20 gallon, soon to be sorority. I do water changes everyday as the jar is a jar used for keeping males in.
Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!
Currently, I have 13 Male bettas in 8 tanks ranging from about 2 to 10 gallons.
The Gecko has taken up my 20 long, otherwise I would probably set that up as a Sorority again....I miss my girlies sometimes. xD
I preform water changes three times a week(one partial in my cycled tanks, two partials and one full in my uncycled smaller tanks), though with my Python hose things go pretty quickly and smoothly with very minimal mess. Even on Wendsdays when I clean every tank, it only takes me about an hour, maybe a little more, to get everything vacuumed and refilled and all that. The Python really makes a HUGE difference with water changes, I'm REALLY glad I invested in it....I probably wouldn't be able to keep up with so many tanks and fish if I didn't. xD
I have either four or five bettas right now, depending on how you look at it. Three of them each have a filtered/heated/planted 5.5 gallon (one of them is at my mom's vet clinic that I work at on occasion - while the fish is not technically mine, I either do or oversee all of the fish's care) and the other two are in a filtered/heated/planted divided 10 gallon. I also have a 15 gallon tank with guppies. Each tank typically gets a 50% water change once a week, right now the 10 gallon is getting more than that because of a cyanobacteria outbreak. I spend probably around an hour a week keeping the fish happy and making sure all the tanks are clean.
Maggie and Rubin are my 2. Rubin is in a heated tank and I'm gonna get Maggie a heater tommorow

Very helpful everyone! Love that picture aokashi lol. Well it sounds like 3 betta's will be do-able if I set everything up right, cycle the tank and have it all planted :) how exciting. My next dream betta is a solid red and tank full of ammonia eating plants. We shall see what the future will bring.
