Hi, all. I've followed this site for several years but just finally got around to registering. I live in very rural northern NV (which means mail order for everything related to betta keeping including the betta themselves.) I've kept as many as 100 male and females (mostly males) at once in 50 divided tanks even though I've never bred. Now limited by space and $$ so my family currently exists of me, my Chinese Crested and my 4 male betta - 2 HMPK and 2 CT. They all live in their own 2 gallon, heated tanks. Hope to add more over time (either a sorority or more males in a divided 10 gallon tank). Have the tank but last attempt to divide it failed miserably. Silicon failed and 3 guys almost had a major slug fest going. Fortunately, I was keeping close watch on them and pulled two out while number 3 currently lives very happily in all 10 gallons. He's pleased as punch but I hope to ruin his day in the near future (LOL).
I'm good at rambling sometimes so I'll cut off here except to say that it's a pleasure joining the community. And thanks to an excellent thread on sororities I just found....that 10 gallon tank may have some new inhabitants soon.
