One day (not any time soon) I wnat to have a habitat so I keep keep multiple bettas together and replicate their natural environment.
I was thinking a tank 30 feet long. 10 wide and 9 feet tall (with only 4 feet of water). I would like it to have a dry side that is 4 feet wide, and 30 feet long, this would be for animals that are found in tailland like frogs and lizards that are native around rice paddies. I would have thousands of plants in their so the bettas wouldn't fight. I would also have driftwood and rocks/boulders in their. Their would be tropical plants on dry part and vines going over the water, it would be like a tropical environment.
So I want to make it like a wild environment, what would I feed these bettas? I would not feed them pellets, I would feed them shrimp, worms, etc... Live food only?
What other fish live with bettas in the wild?
Is there any lizards/snakes/frogs/newts/toads/frogs/etc that live around this area?
If I did this I would wnat the bettas to naturally reproduce so what would a ratio be for males to females? More females or more males? How much bettas could go in this max?
