Can't have just one!

I should have known this was going to happen! After I got my first breeding pair of guppies, I became obsessed and went out and bought 2 more 10 gallons and a 5 gallon, and then I went off to college and left all but the 5 gallon in the care of my father and lost my entire stock (minus 2 males). The 5 gallon I had at school had previously housed Guppies but over Christmas break I took them home, and they are still there (because they're breeding to help my stock xD)

Fish are incredibly addicting.

I got Bleud from a friend, who had him in a vase (probably smaller than 1/2 gallon) and decided he no longer wanted him. And now I'm thinking about getting ANOTHER betta after I get the rest of what I need for Bleud.

Gah! MTS has bitten once before and it seems it's back!!

SO! My entire reason for posting this, lol.

I'm thinking about buying a bin and getting another Betta! I might not use a bin, though. I haven't decided 100% yet. I might just buy a 10 gallon since they're really cheap, a lot cheaper than buying another 5 gallon tank set! lol

either sounds great! If you got the 10g you could give the new betta the whole ten gallon, or divide and get ANOTHER betta! Bins work really well too though. They are sturdy and cheep! You can even find some really nice clear ones for cheap if you look around! Add a cave and a heater and you are set!

Lol nochoramet...so true.

If you get a 10 gallon, you could even divide it three ways!


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2
