Unhappy This forum is not doing me any good...

Because now I want 3-5 different kinds of betta! The most I could do is split my ten gallon in half. *sigh*

Here's what I want:

A perfect Black Orchid Plakat
A perfect platinum white Plakat
A beautiful Orange VT with darker spots in the fins (RIP my pink one)

And if I could get crazy:

A Betta imbellis
A Betta albimarginata


If only I had the money, I'd get one of those extremely short-in-height 48" long "bookshelf" tanks, stick a thermo-canister on it, and I could have all 5!

Sorry if I repeat any "obvious" info you already know, but I like to cover all the bases, just in case.

Well...you can split the 10 gallon 4 ways for 2.5 gallons for each betta or 3 ways, 3.333....whatever ways. But yeah, don't we all want more bettas. I really want a HM but the nearest Petco is 2.5 hours away :/

The Boys
Atlas blue metallic marble HM
Forest
red VT
Leander red/pink dragon Delta
Mister Intelligent orange/white BF VT

Phrixus teal marble dragon HMPK

The Girls
Psyche blue/red PK
Rhea black/red BF DT

RIP Alexander, Morpheus and Phobos. You are missed :'(

Haha, sorry, guys. I knew some people's eyes would bug out, but that was what came first to mind for a title! No, I like this forum. There are bigger ones out there, but then it gets overwhelming keeping up, and I just stop altogether.

Anyway, the way the 10 gal is set up, with two fluorescent resin decorations my friend and her daughter gave me ( :p ), I'd have to split it in half. Plus, my 50W Ebo-Jager heater is 9" long, so I'd have to have the UGF uplift on one side and the heater on the other, with one ornament in each to balance things. It would be good with a black orchid and platinum white, I think.

The trouble is still money, though! But you never know, I might find something at a local store for an amazing discount (because they often don't know just what they have there.) And the way I am, I might just fall in love with a regular $4 VT for whatever reason, and I'll be happy with him!

Good luck!
