Betta garden!

My wife has said if I sell some of the junk I have in the den that I can build a tank case and start a betta garden. I'll have room for about 6.

Should I do 3 separated 10 gallons, 6 2.5 gallons, 6 3 gallons, a 5 way separated 20 long and a bio cube 8 planted...

Ahh decisions, decisions. It will be a couple months any way. I cut my hands badly Saturday morning when a glass light fixture broke in my hands, and will not be able to work with tools for 6-8 weeks.


Opinions are welcome on the "ideal" arrangement for 6'ish betta's and their viewing audience. 1 staple will be live plants any which way it is done. I'm an aquatic plant nut.

I would do 6 2 1/2 gallons so you can have more bettas. lol I'm sorry about your accident with the light fixture.

I know males can not live together, and only certain females work in sorority. I should have said divided 10 gallons, not separated I suppose.

3 divided 10 gallons, or several dividers in a 20 long, or the others mentioned. and I've love 6 10 gallons ifish but I do not have that much room to work with.

While 6 2.5's will look nice, like little windows into water worlds that is alot of filtration to buy or a heck of a singular filtration system for them all.

3 divided 10 gallons would probably be the easiest maintenance wise.

The many divided 20 long would be very nice to look at, but may be a bit too stressful on the boys.

The idea is to keep 6 males making a nice display piece for the house and promote optimum betta happiness.

I think they meant 2.5 gallons, not half gallons. half gallons are not even a consideration for me.

so you know ifish, I am an experienced fish keeper, I have been doing it over 25 years. I'm just looking for ideas so that I can give the fish a nice home and make a nice display for the house.
