I'm Beth and I just joined the group today.
I've had tanks for nearly 20yrs. but I've had a pretty limited number of different species. Right now I have a 30gal salt water that houses our precious puffer Harry and I have a 75gal with the more tame cichlids, tiger barbs, cherry barbs and an angel.
I had a female betta in a 10gal that passed away last summer and I've really mssed her.
I'm thinking of rehoming some of the fish in the 75gal like the tiger barbs and starting a betta soriority. My biggest decision will be whether or not I can give up my angel.
I've had her since she was the size of my thumb nail. That will be a real tough decision that I'll have to continue thinking about. My betta that passed was in the tank with the cichlids but I had to move her once the angel came. My cichlids really are gentle and don't even bother my little cherry barbs nor the angel, which I know is also a cichlid. If I let the angel go along with the tiger barbs I will be left with 4 cichlids. My betta lived with my parrots but I don't think I had the dolphins then. The dolphins are quiet gentle tank mates and only hassle eachother.
So anyway, I know I've missed the obvious but I have been searching for how many gallons each Betta needs and I just can't find it and I can't remember. I know I could get quiet a few girls in a 75gal but I'd like to know how many.
Oh, and I have khuli loaches that are funny little spazes that never bother a soul.
Thank You All, Beth
