I've been exploring options with my betta tanks. Right now I have a 37 gallon that is divided into 3 sections and it is behind the couch on a stand we build. I'm finding that I don't like this set up at all, especially since its behind the couch and the bettas are not really "in view".
My other 2 bettas are in a 1 gallon cookie jar (he's sick & not sure he will make it
), and the other in a 2 (maybe more?) gallon cookie jar (the kind from Walmart). They are up on the counter in the corner in the kitchen...I don't like the tanks there either because I don't spend time in my kitchen, so its not an ideal "viewing" area for them. I do however like the ease of cleaning since the sink is right there.
My plan is to either get two 10 gallon tanks and divide them, so each betta has 5 gallons. I also really like the 2+ gallon cookie jars and I think 4 of them would look really nice lined up together on some sort of stand. In order to do either of those options, though, I'd need to get a really long table type of stand, or two separate ones. I have the perfect spot too...in front of the two huge bay windows in my living room...lots of natural light (or I can close the blinds and no light comes in)...and its just a big empty space in my living room.
I guess my general question is...if you have multiple tanks, then where do you put them? Scattered all throughout your house or in one area/room?
In my old apartment my tanks were on the counter bar...so they were eye level. I REALLY loved this....and am wondering if anyone knows of any stands/furniture that would display my bettas at eye level? Regular stands are made so you have to be sitting or bend down...I don't like this
Would something like this be safe enough for two 10 gallon tanks or four 2+ gallon cookie jars? They have it set up in my local store and its actually really sturdy (not cheapo wood) and it would make the tanks be eye level....
If not for glass tanks, then would that stand hold the large Petco Kritter Keepers?
