I have about 20 in bowls, and the rest are in tanks, anywhere from 1.5 gallons and up. I did have a 25 and 15 gallon divided for them, but I got rid of both because I had so many problems with one betta getting sick then wipping out my whole tank. It is expensive, but not as hard as you think, its not too bad. Plus i have a lot of time on my hands LOL

yes but it was all my fault for being ignorant. i stuck a pine tree leave thing it was like little prickers that stick out and it killed three of my females and it was because of the chemicals in the pine. also i felt horrible about it and decided to quite my hobby for a month or two and completely ignored my other fish. i still regret the pine leaf thing:( it looked like this http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...txkyjh5pg5lA8=

thats what i stuck in there and i thought it would look nice so i did and killed my fish:(

You can buy silk plants at Petco,Petsmart,Wal-mart or a nearby pet store. Or you can just go live or mix live and silk.
