I just joined this community and am excited to get more around the site. To the point, Petco is having the $1 a gallon sale and I want to get back into owning Bettas. I've owned many, but haven't for a few years.
Bettas are currently on sale at Petco, but when I visited the shipment hadn't come in since the weather is beyond freezing cold. The employee said to check back tomorrow to a few days. That gives me time to get everything set up. If you are going to tell me to purchase online for breeding stock, that is on a standstill for now. I would love to try breeding with cheaper Bettas as I haven't done it before. I have done research for years off and on, but I really want to get started. (I am still in the research stage of breeding and the Bettas I purchase won't be bred for who knows how long).
I was thinking about purchasing a 50 gallon, but the downfall of getting a 50 gallon is the stands are very expensive. I searched all over Craigslist to see if there were any, but there weren't. I haven't checked prices on any lids/canapies because I forgot to do so while at the store.
I might be able to find a place for a 29 gallon even though space is tight right now. I do plan on moving within the next few months so I will have more space. I don't know when the next sale is, so I really don't want to miss out on those great prices.
What are your thoughts? They have 5 gallons for sale, so should I get multiple 5 gallons? I would separate them in half so they can at least house 2 males or a few females with lots of plants and "hiding spots" (of course monitoring them when they are put together).
I'm sorry if this post is very confusing. I am not looking to purchase anything online since I don't have a bank account (paypal, debit card, etc) or credit card.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I am a newb currently so bare with me please.
