No More Bettas, I repeat, no more!

I've been dying to take home this beautiful veiltail boy home from work.

He's a peachy color with blue eyes! I've never ever seen a betta with blue eyes before.

But, I've limited myself to only taking home the fish that need it, ie rescues. Sigh. I wish I had room for a huge divided tank.
Someone buy him please so I don't have to see him go to a bad home

How many bettas would you have if you could?

BUT i'v ran out of room and time! I get busy between everything so i'v tried my best to not get anymore....don't worry! I think LOTS of us have done axactly what you have done!

I'd probably be a fish hoarder too (and ferret hoarder!), but I simply just don't have the room for more fishtanks. (Good thing my ferret cage can hold up to seven ferrets, especially since I have 4 now)

It's so hard working in a pet store watching your favorites get sold to people who don't know anything, and refuse to listen to good advice. I already passed up on a lovely navy blue veiltail with orange near his body and he got sold to some guy putting 2 bettas one of those .5gal divided monstrosities.

I have almost thirty right now but I would have sororities all over my house(I'm not a breeder). If I get one more betta my husbands head might blow up.

I think the problem for me is that I say that I'm satisfied with what I have, but then I see a betta that catches my eye and I say, "Oh, well, what's one more?" I think my limit right now is two, but I have no idea what I would do if I had the space/money for many bettas.

i've been wanting to do a room totally covered (all four walls, and possibly ceiling) in nothing but betta tanks. i'd have to have enough money to hire a water-change team, though, so that's never happening.

I have over 90 right now but that's because I have 78 healthy 9 week olds growing. Thats a LOT water changes.
Still I don't stop buying... receiving another 2 adults tomorrow :)
I can't wait for my babies to be adults already... although that will mean 78 jars to clean everyday!

If only I had more room, I only have 3 ATM, but definitely interested in more as soon as I figure out where to put another tank or two, or three...I'm also seriously considering breeding my CT so god only knows how many I'll have after that! Lol
