Question How many bettas do you have?

Soooo I am still relatively new to the betta world (first betta last year, but just joined recently). I feel like I have a lot of fish. I have three tanks in my room. A 10 gallon with my male Bellino, a ten 10 with my male Chiquito, and 20 gallon with four female guppies and three female bettas (soon to be five, I am adopting two).

So how many does everyone else have? Are they for breeding/show/or just pets?

I am planning on breeding after my move, but in the meantime I only have two.

After my move I'll have so many, so much looooove

It's really the eyes that get me. They aren't like goldfish or guppies, these guys can speak to you if you are willing to watch them and listen.

@ lilchiwolf Wow 11! Is it hard to care for them all?

@Lordsameth I love your fish's names! My betta's name (Bellino) is also Italian.

Not, not hard. Its only hard when on gets sick and when it comes to scrubbing tanks. Gotta catch them all in their cups and I have to be careful with the marble HM cause he gets a little stressed in his cup. :/

Digital Art is art you do on a computer using a drawing tablet. I make all kinds and do some betta work as well. Here is my post on it. ^_^

Just the 1. I had up to about 9 at one point. I couldn't handle it all, so I adopted them out.
