Betta still at the petco....need advice...

Well the betta I posted about a couple weeks ago is still at the petco he is super cute and starting to get a poop collection on the bottom of his cup.There is also a red dragon that has been there just as long that I want to get and name him diego. I have a brand new mini bow 1 that I would put the blue marbled one in.But I just love the dragon I don't know what I would do I have a tank that is a little over a gallon that is a goldfish starting tank by marina(probably seen them if you have been in a petsmart they are everywere) I could put him that as a temp home.After I get these two I would not be aloud to have anymore bettas for a long time lol.That would make 5 and the girl I half own with my mom which I might give her full ownership of if I get these two(she was cute and we both wanted her thats how we did the half ownership thing lol).Is 5 too many? and the dragon which would go in the marina tank.I would feel bad going in there and just getting one of the two boys I just fell in love with.They are both HMPK too.I don't know what to do. So any suggestions/ideas on what I should do? They are both like 12 dollars I think so I don't want to have to buy alot for them I would have to use what I have and buy a LITTLE extra. Thanks for reading I know my post was long and I probably moved sentences around I am kind of tired, But any advice would be nice.Ok I am rambleing now lol.

I've got 11 - with one more on the way. I'd say as long as you have the space, funds and materials to properly give a good life to him, go for it. :)

Well I am now the mommy of 5! I got both they were 12 bucks each kind of alot but they have been there for at least a month now.I am mad though one is in his new home he doesn't have a name yet out of curiosity I tested the water from his cup for ammonia it was a 8.0! The poor thing.Pictures are coming soon I took some but I have to upload them to the computer and it takes awhile.

Well...at least when you hoard bettas...they can't poop and pee on the carpet! LOL.

Does anyone know if Dr. Drew contracts with hopelessly addicted fish keepers?
