Inches? Then that tank is approximately "116" gallons. That's a big tank?

That's what approx foot by foot (30cm = 11.8inches)? That's a tiny tank. How tall is it 3o as well?

That is WAY to small except for one betta. I am not great at approximating gallons but I know that's not much bigger then what Jabi is swimming in now. You need a minimum 10 gallon for a seority (sp?).

That still is to much for a tank that size. Not to sound harsh or anything, but you should seriously consider getting arid of more fish and investing in a larger tank. Before that I would consult other members who owned multiple fish on what size tank to get. That is IF you want the responsibility. , Just a warning you with that many fish in that small of an area issues are still going to occur. I may not be an experianced betta keeper, but my dad had other fish tanks growing up I know how messy fish fights can get in an over crowded tank

okay, thanks for your input.

the current fish in the tank have lived for roughly 3 years without any problems so far (until recently) so i'm waiting to see what happens and then stick to just having 1 fish

You do realize fish grow right? Especially algea eaters; that is all I have to say on that subject.

Yes, 10 gallons minimum for a sorority. 30 minimum for a male and a sorority (if male is mellow as are females, and tank is long not regular or tall) and that even then is risky. 50+ for male and females would be best, and again... Can still be risky.
