How do u keep all your betta's?

Just wondered simply, how u do?
I've just got the one & would love more, but I wonder how some of u with about 5-10 bettas manage & keep them (tank wise)

I'm thinking of getting a female betta to go in my community tank, 110 litres with platys, guppies, molly, tetras, danios & a gourami? Ideal?

I'd so love more, would I need more tanks?

I have 19 bettas and most are in 2.5Gs and some are in 1G hospital tanks because I'm treating them for fin rot. It's a lot of water changes because I clean all of my tanks twice a week, but I love them to death, so I don't mind it at all. You could get a 10G and split it in 2, 3 or 4 with dividers. I'm not sure about whats good to put in with bettas so hopefully someone on here will help you with that. Good luck!

I have 3 bettas. I currently have tinny tiny tanks. So I syphon and do a 25% water change every day. When I get my 1 1/2 gallon for each I'm going to be cleaning...Every three days? Depends on the fish I suppose.

I currently have 14 bettas. The 7 girls hang in my 20 gallon sorority, I have two boys in a divided 10, 3 2-sih gallons with a boy each, and 5 gallon that I plan to split that currently has one boy in it. My last boy is hanging in my spawning tank at the moment

I have a divided 10 gal(Mugsy, Frosty, and Rhett), 10 gal sorority, 5 gal(Midas), and a 2gal(Dexter).
I second ChristinaRoss, keeping gouramis with bettas is not recommend. Both fish are in the same family, and can be agressive towards eachother.

Well, this works, I was about to ask if I put a second divider in my 10 gallon and put a girl in between Friday and Jazz Will it work? I mean size wise, and stockage wise. I have 2 small snails and 2 small adfs in with my boys now.

It would work With OUT the ADFs and snails.... I'd say it's too much if you add a girl.
