Soooo Excited!!!!!!!

Hey Everyone,

Guess what! I spent all of last weekend renovating my betta barrack tank to now hold 10 bettas!!!! I thought it was a good time to do it because I only had two bettas in it so there weren't many to find alternative accommodation for while I was working on the tank. It is all done now and turned out really well, the silicone takes 7 days to set properly so I have to wait until Sunday to set it up.

Couldn't help myself when I went to town monday, I bought a new betta, he is a black orchid crowntail, the bottom half of his fins are white and I think he is carrying a copper gene which makes his black scales appear metallic. He is so pretty and I named him Eclipse as in solar Eclipse! He has a lot of growing to do yet so it will be interesting to see how he turns out. I'll post some pics when I get some. Can't wait to go shopping for more bettas!!!!! I can get another 7yay!!!!!!

Hey there,

Ummm gallons not sure I am in Australia so use Litres but it is four foot long by 30cm wide by 30cm high. The tank was originally designed to hold 10 bettas but when I got my giants I decided to give them more room and cut out every second division. I no longer own giants so have put the other five dividers back in. They will have plenty of room. Can't wait till it is all set up

I feel really lucky to be able to have so many and cannot wait to buy some more!!! I used to have 13 male bettas a few years ago but I did not have a good set up then which made them so much work and it was hard to keep them healthy. This time though I have a really good tank setup which will not only make them less work but much easier to keep them healthy so I will be able to enjoy them more
