Is it "bad" to purchase another betta?

So with the $1/gallon deal going on at PetCo, I figured now would be an awesome time to get 2 new bettas! The thing is, though, I've never had more than one at once. They would each have 5 gallons to themselves (Lotte in her 5 gallon, and the other two in a divided ten gallon), a heater, filter, decorations, and all that. I'd feel bad if I started to favor one over the other, though. So my question is, would it be "bad" to purchase another betta (or two) if I already have one?

I think that would be a good chance to get 2 new bettas! Just make sure to treat them equally.

I have six bettas soon seven, so I think that is my say! :)
I think as long as they all receive care then yes go for it! I do have a favorite boy though... but I treat all my other bettas the same. They are not human's so they can't really recognize if you favor one over the other if you give them all the same care.

Unless... They have super-fishy-sense-y powers!!! But all joking aside (temporarily, of course ), I think I'll go ahead and get the two.

Many of us here on the forum have multiple bettas and do have favorites or less favored bettas. Each one is differnt in their own way some seem more affectionate and interactive than others.

I have five bettas, soon to have six, though one of my boys might have to be put down due to how bad his SBD is. T^T So No worries!

I have my faves but I treat most of them equally and give them enough attention.
