Question Big betta bedrooms!!!

Hi everyone!

I was just wondering is anyone here has a room in the house that is nothing but bettas. Like breeding rooms, show rooms or both. I wanna look at some set ups cause I wanna start one in a few years. I also want to know what it costs you bills wise. Also how many hours a day you take on caring for everyone.

Pictures would be awesome too. I really want to have all 4 walls nothing but betta tanks, maybe 5gal each, built into the walls. The middle of the room would have a breeding set up. Would an all around filter be be best for all the tanks or would it be better for each tank to have its own? Not sure I would have that man plugs and thats a hell of a lot of cords O.o. I am looking to be a long term hobbiest/breeder one day and become a member of the IBC and be a known breeder. I want to show and really get into it.

Any help for this dream would be awesome!

I don't have one, but if I never had to work and was rich and could spend all my spare time with the fish, I would want one! I actually just had a dream that I had a ton of bettas (20 - 30) that were spread around an apartment that I was living in.

I wonder how those look/work as well. Not that I would ever do it, I would like to integrate my aquariums in such a way as to further enhance aesthetic value of the room in question. Dont want my place to look like a pet shop :P

My hubby and I are setting up one room dedicated to our tank pets (bettas, frogs, geckos). We plan to have it look like an outdoor location: lots of plants, steel garden frames for holding tanks, lots of sunlight. Almost like a greenhouse! If we complete it before this thread becomes obsolete I'll post pics lol

I currently have four 7 gallon, one 8 gallon, one 15 gallon and a 3 gallon in my bedroom. There's also an empty 46 gallon sitting on the floor. I still have to go buy an industrial grade shelving unit, but eventually I will have eight 3 gallon tanks, my 46 gallon tank (set up with a group or pair of wilds) and two 15 gallon tanks in my bedroom. My older brother is an electrician and is installing two new power points because everything in my room is run off adapters.

I would love to have a complete fish room, but I would be worried our floor would collapse under all that weight since we're not on a slab. Humidity is also a real issue. My room is so much hotter than anywhere else in the house so I have to sleep with my window open if I shut my door at night.

Not to mention electricity and water costs ... eek!
