Talking Bedroom I mean fishroom changes!

So I'll be getting a shelf on Tuesday (after I shadow at a high school). It's a garage shelf that has 5 shelves and each shelf holds 1000 pounds! I'm gonna do three, 10 gallon spawning tanks, and three 30 gallon growout tanks. Possibly more though (like an extra tub for a small spawn growout).

That leaves three more shelves for jars (I'll be getting mine through www.ccwproducts.com since they're near me and other breeders like their jars). Then I'll probably get another shelf to put my flow through systems (I made a thread on these) or even a drip systems (a saltwater store sells sumps for $50! Though I'd need to clean them very well).

I can't wait!!!

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

That's a lot of tanks! I plan on doing something similar one day with 6 tanks on a shelf one of them a female sorority and the rest containing male Bettas...

Yes, I'm addicted. I probably wont do this for years though lol!

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows

Wow, that rocks! How many Bettas do you have now? How many will you be adding with the new tanks?

It depends. I have 20 or 30 in a 16.5 gallon (I removed the bigger guys to another tub to allow the smaller siblings to catch up in growth) and another 15 in a 22 gallon. I have 6 adults (4 from breeders and two females from Walmart and PetsMart).

I'll be doing another spawn next week or the week after that so add 100-500 more to my count. Also I'll be adding another few tanks for female housing.

*The bettas in tanks together aren't adults. They're 9 weeks and 6 weeks old.
