I wish I had More Room!!

I stopped by Petco on my way home from work today to grab some stuff for the family cat.

I have only been to this Petco once before but its safe to say I will be heading back there from now on. It's so nice! So much better than the old Petco that just closed near my house.

Anyway, I had to stop by the Bettas just to see what they had and omg I found at least 5 that I would have loved to bring home. They had a couple beautiful butterfly's, a couple marbles and the most gorgeous teal double tail that I have ever seen! He would shimmer blue and then teal depending on the light, he was gorgeous! *sigh*

I will most likely only be able to add one more Betta to my little family (size restrictions suck!) and I am saving my open spot for a little guy I just can't live without.

But man, if I had a Betta room I would have brought home enough Bettas to fill up my car! lol

I have a whole condo with three floors but there's only so much water I can ask the hubby to put up with. So far I've drained about 8 gallons collectively onto our floors by accident. I've dropped gallon bottles when I was filling tanks. Once the siphon came out of the bucket and I didn't notice (I had sneakers on and didn't feel the water flowing over my whole kitchen floor). The bucket fell off the ladder when I was doing a counter top water change. I dropped my iPod into the bucket. Another time my camera fell in.... I could go on but it's bad enough. :P

16 Gallon-4 Corys, 3 Endler's, 5 Celestial Pearl Danios
10 Gallon: Male King Betta-Kilo
5 Gallon: Male Marble HM-Logan
5 Gallon: Dwarf Puffer-Huey
5 Gallon: Male VT-Tango

Ugh, restrictions are BOO! lol
My biggest restriction is that I go away for 1.5 months in the summer so I have family or friends watch my fishies... I would hate to overwhelm them with a million betta fish! If we weren't staying in a tent cabin in the mountains I would bring them along. :P

Betta Fish:Salsa,
Duck
, Blueberry, El Chapo, Trotsky,Lemon
Siberian Huskies: Kapu & Lakota

... and a tank with 7 Zebra Danios

Im glad I have you guys to understand how I feel. I really have to keep my Betta numbers down, as I am hoping to move out by the end of the year. Since I already have 2 birds and 2 Bettas I really don't know how much room I will have in the future. I also want to get a corn snake once I move out, so I have to keep that in mind as well. I should just build shelves all over the walls and that should solve the space problem... hmmmmmmmm lol

Yep, restrictions bite. I'm hoping to move in to a rental house by the end of summer and I really hope I can have a tank. I want to get a 20 gallon long to divide but a lot of places wont let you have a tank that size . If I owned my own place I'd have a room just for my fish. That would be awesome.

I know how you guys feel. I'm planning to move in about a year or year and a half, and I don't know how long I'll be in my next location. I'm not really comfortable moving around a lot of fish, either.
