Cool My Plan to Get More Bettas... Need Help! ^-^

Hehehe... I've decided I NEED more bettas. Yep, NEED. I'll go crazy if I don't get more. I'm so addicted... I know I just got 2 bettas over the weekend- Norm (rescue) and Spiridion, but... I NEED more.
When I got Spiridion (mistakenly thinking he was a she) I was in such a rush- my lps never gets in and nice bettas and Spiri was a save!! That, and there were other people looking at the bettas, and as soon as I snatched Spiridion up, people gave me dirty looks. Heheh.
Anyway, I told my dad no more bettas for the rest of the year.
NOT.
And besides, they forget anyway.
Annd... they DID say I could have as many bettas as I wanted as long as I take care of them- which I do, to the best of my ability.
...and my local LPS just got a new shipment of females in!
Any suggestions to get my parents sucked in to getting me another betta? I do have one more free tank, after all... :D

You need a ratio of boys to girls of 2:1 (total for you would be 4:2), so that there isn't a large "flaredown" between the boys.

You have the space.

Odd numbers are unlucky.

:P

haha, my mom and i were just at the store looking at a siphon, and she started looking at a 1.5 gallon. I asked what she was doing and she asked if it was big enough for a betta. I asked why and she said shes been thinking about getting one! Im so excited! She is becoming addicted as well!
