You have some beautiful fish but that tank is seriously overstocked. Plus you should NEVER house male and female bettas together,unless for short breeding purposes.

Very Nice tank!! Beat2020 he/she wrote that they're going to move most of the fish to a 125 gallon. NEVER keep males and females in the same unless you are breeding.

A lot of things are considered common knowledge because someone "wrote" it somewhere. I've found that you can learn a lot more by doing something yourself, instead of just believing what someone wrote =)

The tank's not overstocked. I use high grade carbon and zeolite (I cut open the Tetra standard cartridges and replace their crap carbon with bio-chem zorb, hehe). When I decided to keep this many fish, I bought test kits and started to monitor Nitrate, Nitrite, Ammonia, and PH regularly.

I'm really, really happy with this tank. All of the Bettas are PetCo rescues, four of which were dying when I bought them, and I nursed them back to health in the tank. There was a lot of nipping in the beginning, but I've watched that carefully, and all of my fish are showing healthy regrowth.

I R pleased. So R dur fishies.

nice tank, and I agree with jayy2020, but the males should probably be removed pretty soon.

What is that suppose to mean?? I was just tiring to take your word for it. I really don't think people lie about moving fish to a different tank. That didn't seem like something someone had to lie about.

Males and females should NEVER be housed together unless for short breeding purposes. PLEASE remove the male before someone gets hurt!!!

Having males and females together is just a disaster waiting to happen.
