Just want to say hello to everyone on BettaFish.com as I have just registered. I'm Phil from Northern Ireland. I've joined the forum as I currently have two Bettas at home who are currently awaiting the arrival of their new tank.
My brother works for Exotic Aquatics here in NI and is building me a custom tank to house 6 Bettas, each in their own division within the tank. I've been lookin after his purple crown tail for about a year now as he was eating my brother's shrimp, and I asked him why there were no big tanks readily available to keep multiple male fighters - the outcome of which is that he has built me one specifically for this purpose. I currently also have a red long fin, and a red and white long fin reserved in my brother's work. I'm expecting the tank to be brought home this week as the dividers were inserted today, so once it's home i'll be off to hunt the local shops for 3 more bettas to join the tank - i'm aiming for 3 long fins and 3 crown tails of as varied colours as are available here in NI.
Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself to the site and detail my interest in bettas. I hope to get to chat to u all on the forum and once the tank is up and running and populated i'll get some pictures up.
