WELL... depends on your circumstances, lol.

I am leaving in a month for military training so my wife will have to care for a baby and now two Bettas for 4 months all by herself. Shame on me

After I get settled into the military I hope to have enough time/money to build a small Betta "barracks". I'm thinking maybe 6 3-5 gallon cubes joined together with a dark glass so that they can't see eachother.

But I am still a long ways from even planning that; I have to find a way to circulate the water, heat it, filter, etc...

Green has always been the color I was looking for, but after joining these forums, I learned it and purple are the most rare. I found them both on the same Betta

Lucky find! I'd be afraid to build a barracks. I read that they can come apart then the betta's all get at each other O.o Plus, the way I handy-man things it wouldn't last long anyway (eye roll) I'm terrible. Would rather get it done, you know? My bunny's homemade closet NIC pen is needing an fix up.

He could be, but he is the only Betta I've come across that is (or can) be green!

I'm trying to figure out the best way to light his tank. Daylight (not direct sunlight, just a room with open blinds) seems to show off his green. LED white light turns his green into a pale yellow frog-type color. I've yet to see what a normal aquarium light does for him.
