how many bettas do you have?

so on this site, you always hear people saying that bettas are addictive and everything (i can testify that so far, that is extremely true) so i thought it could be interesting to post how many bettas you have. it would be cool to see some numbers on what many people say are the most popular tropical fish, and it would be cool to see who has the most bettas out of the people on TFK too :)

i have 2 bettas right now. (i have plans for more, but for now, just 2) how about you? :)

Meekish-female vt
Nahh-male vt
Rue-female lab/pit mix
Pandem-male kitty

Helios- male vt
Hades- male hm
Nero- male sd
20 gallon betta sorority

my girls: Maia (ct) Athena (ct) Eris(vt) Nyx (ct)
Hecate (ct) Artemis (vt) Bia (ct)
Rani (hm) Xylia (hm)
Pixie (hm) still in a 1.5g QT (conditioning)
Slugger and the Tag Alongs (my ragtag team of
freeloading snails )

RIP circe

I've got 3 right now, and I'm pretty comfortable. I thought I would want more, but I actually think that any more would begin to stretch out my attention and funds, so I'll stick with Quinn, Boba, and Fafnir. Outside of them, I have 3 Cory cats (Monstro, Tweak, and Runt) and 3 goldfish (Xerxes, Apollo, and Caligula) which puts me at my fin limit. Besides, any more water and my floor will collapse.

4 and that's my max. I know I would enjoy more and be able to take care of more, but realistically, you never know what the future holds. In addition, when I go on vacations I want my pet sitter to comfortably take care of the fishies, not be overwhelmed by 20 of them. If I do ever get more it will be several months to a year from now, pacing myself and not letting my emotional obsession take over! :P

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

... and a tank with 7 Zebra Danios

I currently house 5, but I'll have a total of 7 in a week or so. That'll be my max.

Only 1. I'm planning on adding 4 cories to the 10gal and that will be it. A college student only has so much time and money for fish.

I only have 1 female but I'm getting at 1-2 males this weekend.

My plans? Split 10 gallon for the males. Then either get a 20 gallon for a sorority, or keep my female and some other bettas (gender undecided) in smaller tanks. (2-3 gallons.)

Right now the "official" plan is 3 smaller tanks and the 10 gallon. Keep the 3 tanks in a bookshelf next to the 10 on a stand.

So in my current plans, I plan on maxing out at 6 bettas.

Kaida- CT Female 2.5 Gal.
Julep- HMPK Male 2.5 Gal.
Fandango-HM Male 10 Gal.
