Thinking about taking the plunge...

Call me crazy, but I am seriously considering getting an AB betta for the first time. There's one I just can't take my eyes off of!!

http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1326691930

Since I already have one betta, I was thinking about purchasing a 5-6 gal and getting a divider for it? I'm kinda limited on space, as I live in a dorm, so I really don't know what tank I would want. Any ideas or recommendations? Preferably, it would be something I could pick up from Petco or Petsmart.

What do you guys think? Opinions are welcome and honesty is encouraged (I'm even open to someone talking me out of getting an AB betta...)!

Oh, and I might add that I do know the costs associated with shipping. I've been in contact with a transhipper since I became interested in this fish :)

As for the tank if you happen to have a walmart they have some nice tanks. I got a 360 3g for $30. I really liked it. You can also get 5g for like $12 there. I don't know what petco or petsmart has since I rarely shop their.

OMG I was totally eyeballing that guy. If I had the money and my mom let me I would have bought him. He is so handsome! Get him!

Just a word of caution, some don't post fish they are interested in on the forum just in case someone else starts bidding on it lol If you really have your heart set on a fish, don't post lol He certainly is beautiful!!

Buying off AB can be scary when you start but once you do it and it goes smoothly, you're hooked lol

I had that 360 3g before, I took it back because it was making my fish sick. I know another local member who had the same issue with it. But I have a divided 5g and I think it's a great solution to your space issue and wanting 2 Bettas :) Congrats and good luck, nab him up!

Oops guess I hadn't thought about that!

Are tank dividers hard to find? I found one online at petsmart/petco but I wasn't sure if they fit in any tank?

I make my own, and silicone them to the sides. I have never used store bought ones.

i don't like the 360 tank. :T i have one, and it's a pain to lug around for water changes. x-x it's BIG, and i love the lights, but you're better off getting and dividing a 5 or 10 gallon for cheaper. :T

that boy, is so CUTE! he's just adorable! <3
