1 male betta to any tank under 75 gallons.
On very rare occasion I heard of multiple males being kept in a heavily plantd 75+ gallon.
multiple males can share a larger tank, 5+ gallons if properly divided.
mult. females can be kept together in a minimum of 10 gallons also if heavily planted and there are plenty of hidy spots.
So just incase you did patten it for sale eventually, keep in mind that it wouldnt be suitable for 2 bettas =P
Good info. I actually could have guessed that. I'll be honest in that designing the tank came before the welfare of the fish. It was just supposed to be a prototype.
My other tanks impress with superior filtration, sumps, refugiums, lots of ( Poi) just learned that btw. I keep wild varieties of peacock bass, along with arowana, tigrinis catfish and amazon monster fish. I have never been big on small man made, inbred fish with unatural tails, albinism ect. But... The little betta is growing on me I must say.
