Is a betta rescue really expensive to run? Is it fun? I have been interested in this ever since my betta died last week.

How many do you have? Are you very ell educated in the species and the care involved? A betta rescue would need tanks, a lot of meds, a lot of space...

I haven't started yet. I just want to have a small rescue. Yes, I have had bettas before. Thank you for your reply.

I wish I did not live in a dorm room the size of a janitorial closet. :( Then I might be able to have a rescue. Lol ol

I can't have a very big rescue because I am confined to a 10 x 10 foot room. I can only have about 1-2 tanks right now.

There was a member on here, greentea, that did a rescue. They put up fliers saying to drop off unwanted bettas in her mailbox - not sure where they live but I am assuming this was only in the summertime. Sadly I haven't seen them online in a while.

It wouldn't have to be "big". Bettas really don't require much space as compared to say a dog or cat. You can keep them in 1 or 2 gallon tanks assuming you do the work that a small tank requires.

All of my bettas were "rescues" from petco - although I don't offer them up for adoption.
Before


AFTER


I had 23 when I lived in Alaska and my entire apt was a mere 280 sq. ft - all were in 3 gallons or larger

Yeah, it won't be big. I have decided to house 3 bettas at a time. Moonshadow, you are awesome. You have inspired me to start helping bettas who suffer.

I know that this thread is very old, but I am definitely going to start a betta rescue in the future! I just may have trouble adopting them.

LOVE THIS POST!!
I am starting a little betta rescue! Just a little one but it is growing fast!!! i have taken in about 5-7 fish a week!!! of caurse i put alot up for adoption(i keep a couple sometimes) i do not ship cause i dont wanna risk the fish dying (yes i know it can be safe but still) i use a big tank for the females (if they are not that aggressive) and i use 1-5 gallon tanks for the males i will agree with you it is ALOT OF WORK i am cleaning tanks daily!!! cause i have so many and depending on the size of tank = the amount of times i change it per week!
