Depends on the amperage of your fuses, LOL.

You can go with splitters or power bars. Generally plugging them into each other isn't *technically* safe but......

You can also throw away all your miniature tanks and get a big one to split, then you'll only need 3-4 plugs again (heater/filter/light/etc. x 1)

I have already run out of electrical plugs to the point where I have to temporarily unplug one of the filters just to use my printer, LMFAO.

I can't do anything about it because the amps on my fusebox is SUPERLAME

You'll find that betta you just can't live without even if it means doing a little rearranging to get him to fit.
Haha the minimum for me would be 5g. And Quicksilver had major stress stripes, not a scratch.

Bahamut - the day I stack the dishes in a cardboard box and remove the cupboard doors so I can put a 5g in there is the day I know I qualify for a reality tv show about betta hoarding. For now, it's carefully controlled to one room - mine. Carefully controlled fishy chaos.

Littlebittyfish - power strips, power strips, and more power strips.

Pinkbetta - if the betta is relatively healthy other than fin issues, I usually quarantine for a week. If they show signs of infection (like parasites in the cup at the store), then obviously they get QT for a lot longer than that. And I've heard you can keep them in AQ salt for up to 10 days.

fishman - you have room for a Great Dane but not enough room for a little ol' 5g tank and a 2" betta??? Hahaha, soon, my friend, soon you'll be one of us without self-control. I'm glad Quicksilver was just stress-striped and not scratched. He'll probably enjoy some cory friends. Or he'll beat the spots right off of them, hard to say. That's what I'm afraid of with Anderson in my 10g but I won't know till I try.

Your cat's not the only one who is evil. What if I convince myself I plan to breed a fancy Aquabid betta and make a profit on him? That will justify such an extravagant purchase, right?

Yeah but you would have to get back on aquabid to find a female.

You know how you were saying that you needed to start a bettas only petstore? Well you should start it and sell betta tankmates (i.e. cories, shrimp, etc.)

That's a good idea. I like it. Cories other than the albino and bronze cories are so hard to find, at least where I am. Wanna partner up with me and Bettawolf and Yuuie? You can handle the tankmates. Yuuie's our Canadian rep, Bettawolf runs the storefront, and I handle the betta breeding and supplying.

I just measured and I can actually cram a 20L in the space at the end of my bed! It'll be a tight fit and probably look just a little silly but it can be done. So, 20L or just a 10g?

I'm not sure if your evil cat rubbed off on you or you rubbed off on the previously nice and sweet cat.
