I caught the Betta bug!

So, after getting my first VT Betta the first week of November I was waiting and waiting to get another but needed a tank and $$ to fill it with decor and substrate and a heater. I was given a tank so that made it super easy! #2 came home with me 2 days ago and I already am wanting a third!!! So I was roaming cragistlist and found a barely used minibow 2.5 gallon with decor included for $20 and I already have a heater for that size tank! This might be too tempting to pass up... now if only I could find a place to put a third tank LOL!

Oh I so know how that goes! A year ago - 0 Bettas, 0 Tanks . . . now 5 oops make that 6 (new Betta brought home today) tanks with a total of 12 females & 5 males. I keep saying this is the last one but keep getting more. I've really got to stop.

It is so hard to fight he urge, if I already had the tanks it would be a lot easier to just get another betta but all I have is an extra heater so I'd have to buy a whole new set up. Maybe another free tank will fall in my lap and I can continue my new hobby :)
