How many is too many?

I recently got my 4th betta, and I am now content. Three wasn't really enough for me, but I wouldn't want to care for more than four. I know this seems low, but I spend a few hours on water changes per week as is. I don't really know how the average person handles 10 plus bettas... So what's your personal limit?

LOL jk
If you feel overwhelmed or if you don't have time to take care of and enjoy them, you have too many.
Edit: wait, a personal limit or a general limit?

My PARENT'S limit for my betta fish is 12. (I've reached it then.. Blah.) MY limit is around 15. When I move out I'll have more than 12, I guarantee you that...

About 25 bettas is my limit. I already have 20, but I want a dragon breeding pair.

I can't really say beacause bettas die and I could come across a used tank. That means more room which means more bettas. I really don't want go past 8 maybe 10, but You know how bad the betta bug can be.

I'm not sure... but I currently have 14 and don't feel stressed at all. 20-25 is probably my limit.

Right now I have 17 bettas plus 11 fry. I just gave my mom 3 fish which brought my number down from twenty. Honestly I was stretched completely thin with 20. I think if I hadn't had so many in small tanks (I'm re-dividing two tanks) than it wouldn't have been so hard.

My limit isn't dependent on how many fish but on how many tanks I have. That being said, at this point in time 20 full grown bettas is my limit.

Right now I have to limit myself to 4, could have room for one more but that's pushing it. I have the tank but my room would be PACKED with tanks LOL!
Also, I hope to move out of state soon so I wouldn't want to put too many fish in danger bc I will be driving all the way.
After I make the move? Who knows? I might end up with 20, I just love them too much. Right now there's a guy on bettysplendens.com that's been hunting me for the past few days. Ugh! I need to be strong!!

10-11 for me, AKA, I've reached it ^_^ I'm comfortable with the water changes, since it usually takes about an hour to do 5 tanks, and I still know all of the gang personality wise. That's my biggest fear there; to lose that "click" with the fish ):
