10 Gallon Community:
I got this as a Christmas present. (: It's my first tank (other than the 2 poor comet goldies in a bowl of un-conditioned tap water. :( Boo you, Wal-Mart!) It originally housed a royal blue betta fish named Hermes. Poor thing was really stressed and had Swim-Baldder. RIP :(

-5 Male Guppies
Flutterby, Mango (Mango is quite aggressive), Monarch, Hermes Jr., and Sunset.
I think Sunset and Mango are brothers!!

--5 Harlequin Rasboras
Eenie, Meenie, Minie, Mo and To
These fish are so darn skittish. D:< One of them jumped and hit the tank lid then fell down and got stuck under a rock trying get away from me. O.o

5 Gallon Betta:
This has been used for many things. First, it was for Mango when he had a psychotic break. O.o Then for Hermes Jr.'s Fin-rot treatment (Thanks Sakura! :D). I don't think he had fin-rot though. After being in aquarium salt for a week there was only a little re-growth. I think it might just be a birth defect. Now it houses for my betta. :)

-1 Male VT Betta - Pink and Blue Butterfly (:
I LOVE THIS FISH! :3 He is so full of personality. I've found my Mum singing 'Your Beautiful' by James Blunt to him. O.o

-1 Nerite Snail
Usain Bolt
He's a little ball of snaily cuteness. He was originally meant to keep Mango company when he was put in the 5 gallon. When Mango returned to the community Usain did too. On Friday I found Monarch pecking at him like a chicken. D:< On Sunday he was put in the 5 gallon with Velvet. Velvet stared at him for a few minutes when he first came in, but now he acts like Usain isn't there. lol

EDIT: I just realized how long this is. O.o

10 Gallon Tank:
~Countless Pond Snails~1 Espe's Rasbora~1 Harlequin Rasbora~

5 and 5.5 Gallon Tanks:

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

Hehe mine will look pretty pathetic compared to you lot!

In my bedroom - 15g heavily planted, over filtered community tank. Kyon the DeT betta, 7 Neon tetras, 4 bronze corys and 1 assassin snail.

8g empty awaiting repairs. Either another male betta, 2 ADF's or a female betta will go in this one.

I've only been fish keeping for little over 2 months.

Gone AWOL....

Currently I have 11 bettas.

Living room
5G - 1 crayfish, 3 tetras, 3 danios
3G - platinum white PK (Pika dragon)
8G - Community tank fish: 1 rainbow fish, 3 tetras, 2 platys, 2 golden barbs, 1 tiger barbs, 1 orange barb (the community tank is setup by my brother)

1.5G - bi-color CT (Donke)
2G - Turquoise butterfly HM (Marco)
2G - Turquoise HM (Danny)
1.5G - Turquiose VT (Jack)
2G - Red lavender HMPK (Prasma)

Though each of them are living in small tanks, I can feel and see they're always happy and healthy. I do frequent water changes and usually took me more than 1 hours for all tanks (Im actually enjoy doing it)..My bedroom is surrounded with bettas just because I love bettas :D

Agreed! I actually have a bit of an anxiety disorder, and so water-changes are really soothing and helpful for me. :)

I would never judge someone for the tank size they decided to keep their betta in (I mean, within reason), so long as the fish is happy and well cared for. Different fish respond better to different tanks, besides that: I have one who's currently in a 1 gallon as a temporary home, who used to be very anxious and skittish in his 3.5 gallon, and who now builds bubble nests for me all the time.
