yah mom finally caved, guess she heard enough of my if we get a 55g we can have 11 betta's in one take speech.... we were at the petstore today so i could pic up a couple sleeves for my carbon....and she got to looking through the bettas... lol
so basically once our Bonus checks come, we're gonna get a 55gal, and a bunch of dividers, a few bags of FloraMax substrae, and start getting ready for a Betta House! ! !
11 Bettas, can u imagine ??????
next i just have to figure out filtration... i was thinking of a Fluval Cannister setup so i dont have to do the 55g water changes so often... also this is going to be a semi-planted in 5gal sections....
10g Non Planted

That is really exciting! I would suggest not putting 11 though. I am definitely not trying to burst your bubble...A 55 is really tall and each betta would not have enough width to swim in. Their section would be like 4" wide but really tall. The isn't really not ideal for a betta. You would probably be better off with like 6 or something. I had thought about doing this at one point...
