Is there a BBA?

As in Betta Buyers Anonymous??? I went to petco with my husband to return a couple of things. Of course I checked out the bettas. The majority I had seen before the last time I was there. But low and behold I pick up this one to look at and he has a blackish grey body with pink and white fins! A HM!! Gorgeous!! I show my husband and he says we can't just leave it. It is too pretty! Like I'm going to argue with that! Now we have #15. Ahhhhh! We have a problem... We may need a 10 step program! I'll post pictures once he gets settled in...

19 males all but 1 in 5 gal tanks
1 giant in a 16 bowfront
52 female sorority, 15 raspboras, 6 corydora sterbia and BN pleco in a 72 gallon

Other tanks - 135 gallon african cichlids, 48 breeder SA cichlid, 30 gallon hex goldfish, 30 gallon community fish and shrimp tank, 12 gallon hex growout

2 Chihuahuas, 2 1/2 lab 1/2 weim dogs and 2 cats
1 Husband and 1 3 year old princess

You only need an 10 step program if you need to stop. I don't think anyone needs to stop. ever.

Lol! I think part of the problem is we both stopped smoking 2 months ago so we have to fill our addictive nature with something else. Definitely a trade up in addictions. At least this one won't kill me as far as I know!

My husband is supportive which is good and bad! Lol!! He is really excited because we are currently designing a shelving system for all of my 5 gallon betta tanks and the a divided 55 gallon (which means room for 5 more bettas!). He's into DIY projects.

Here are a couple of pictures of Mr No Name in his temporary 1 gallon...

They aren't the greatest and don't really show the pink in his tail that very well but will have to do for now!
