I have three at the moment. While I didn't have nearly as many fish as some other members, I sort of felt like I was hording-- so I'd been thinning out my collection, and rehoming.
Mercury was my last purchase as so far as a betta-- an impulse buy. but I also bought his tank, heater, and sand at the same time, so I don't really feel badly about it. He seems pretty happy-- but now I wish I hadn't gotten the 2.5 gallon. It just seems too teeny. At the same time, I got a $25 gift card for walmart... I'm starting to fall in love with shrimp too and they have a cute little 1 gallon kit with a filter and airstone. *blush*
Since the 10g is opened up too I've been thinking about getting some pygmy corries. Calder's not so great with shrimp. Unless demolishing them is what you count as being 'great'.
