LOL. I can't do that but I can tell you where to get the information to do it :D


So the dimensions for Sherolyn's (BasmentBettas) double sided barracks are:

"The cells are 6" deep and there is a 3" channel down the middle. So the doubles are about 15" wide. You have to decide what size you want then design from there."

I'm starting with one system now. However I want a total of three or four eventually just because I'm going to be showing and I need to keep these show fish in top condition.

Here's some videos on the type of barracks I'm going with.

Most barracks run $400 to $500 because most people use beanie baby display cases which cost a lot of $$.

These ones will be around $300 for the tanks, PVC, sump, pump, heater, and R/O unit.

Considering you can house hundreds of bettas no problem is worth the cost lol.

We're taking the next few weeks to gather supplies and figure out measurments.
