Talking Wow... Starting a second is way cheaper than the first.

I've been thinking about starting a new tank once Walter's tank cycles and I've been adding up how much it will cost.

I need a tank - $45, a heater - $12ish and a thermometer - $5.

That's all I would need to buy because I have half a bag of gravel left, I could take my time and find natural decor and I already have the test kits, conditioners, food etc.

So with tax that's around $62 and if I divided it, I could house two more Bettas :3

I paid nearly $200 for all of Walter's equipment so that's not bad at all... Now I just need to find a spot xD

I'm thinking about building a stand big enough to hold 3 ten gallons side by side.

It'd look awesome to decorate them all in the same theme :3

I have my two 5g next too each other and I love the way it looks because they are both natural style but they aren't exactly the same!! and my bettas love seeing each other plus it's good exercise for them!!

Don't be fooled! You think its cheaper but just wait. After its set up with "second hand things" (thing you already own) and your new fish is/are in the tank, you start looking around thinking well it would be nice to have just one new plant/cave in there.... next thing you know....

Its still cheaper cause you you have the siphon master test kit water conditioner and if you have a planted tank you can use cuttings to plant the new tank.

Yes that's about right. I figured startup for each new betta is $60 not counting the cost of the fish. You do end up buying more stuff just because you want each tank to be unique or each betta has unique needs.
