My Betta Addiction

I am currently the proud pet parent to 3 betta boys ( and a couple fuzzy and not so fuzzy pets). I am working on a new set up for my betta boys and possibly a sorority. I thought it would be fun to post pictures and watch how my tanks ... and sometimes my bettas... Change over time.

The new set ups will take a while, the tanks still need to be moved to their permanent spots and of course filled and the 30 gallon will be cycled ( the 20 will use the already cycled media)

These are my boys

Kai , He has been with me the longest, a little over a year



Rebel, this little one has only been with me about a month


And this is my newest boy, he doesn't have a name yet, but he is a rescue of sorts, he was on craigslist,



And even though my tanks need to be moved and set up, I decided to go ahead and see how they looked

Thank you :) You can't tell in the pictures but Rebel is a double tail, is it odd I am slightly obsessed with his tail? That has to be my second favorite tail type now, Second to crowntail lol.

The driftwood I ordered arrived today, I am very disappointed. Its jagged and teeny and I don't think it will work at all for my tank plans.

After a lot of debate, and research, and breaking the hinge on the 30 gallon hood, I decided to just set up the 20 long with my boys for now. I found a nice stand for it that I am getting. the 30 and stand will go in storage for now, I don't need the temptation to fill it lol. I siliconed rocks into the holes at the bottom of each of the boys terra cotta pots the other day and they are dry and now completely safe.

After a lot of debate, I decided to just go ahead and set up the 5 gallon once the boys are moved, but this time undivided, I will set it up for just one little girl.

I am waiting for the suction cups for the dividers to get here and then I will start putting the tank together. Even if I don't have the stand or a place to set it up yet lol.

Well, plans changed a little , I bought this stand for my tank, it needs cleaned up a bit but I am pretty excited. The 30 gallon has been set aside for now... for non aquatic use.

The 5 gallon will probably end up with a little betta girl. But getting the air pump and new hood I need for that will be my next adventure.

To prevent too much air flow I ordered a gang valve and will be hooking it up to an undersized air pump, I will let you know how it goes. I also siliconed gravel to the holes in each of the terra cotta pots for the bettas. I am pretty excited to be setting up this tank. My boys are going to love this. In the end the tank will have 3 sponge filters, one in each section.

My divided 20 long is set up, What do you think? I may end up adding more suction cups for more security, I am pretty paranoid.



On the far left we have my newest boy, I still have not decided on a name for this little guy.





In the middle is Rebel, my double tail boy, he is my youngest and most shy.





On the far right is Kai, my veiltail boy, I have had this guy the longest, a bit over a year now.

Do you have a picture of Kai flaring by chance? He doesn't look like a veiltail. He looks more like a delta.

Sorry, you are right he was sold as a half moon, but he isn't a full half moon so he would be a delta. My brain is fried from school.
