Monster of a tank!

Went out to a few thrift stores hoping to find a larger tank for the girl I'm getting in a few days/week and instead of a 5-10 gallon, I found a monster of a tank!





I put it next to a 5 gallon bucket, to show just how big it is. Not sure what the gallons are... maybe a 20, or a 29? No idea, but it is HUGE and this means BettaBettaBetta and Tidbit each get at least 10 gallons! Maybe more! OMG OMG OMG I can't wait to get started. I've got it full of water and watching it for leaks right now. I might try a planted tank... just to see how it goes. Have to make the choice tomorrow. Today.. well I think I've made enough rash decisions for one day. Hubby was not pleased.. but he's not mad either. He just thinks I won't finish the project, lol.

Any ideas on how big it is?

I'm guessing a 20 or 30 long. Beautiful tank. I love thrift stores!

I did the measurements and it's a 29 gallon. Which means... 14.5 for Bettabettabetta and 14.5 for Tidbit. So much room... what to do with it all!

You could take measurements of the tank length width and height then find a volume calculator online. This would be much more accurate than people guessing online at a picture. :)

Edit:
Looks like you did or something lol...

My husband says if I want to breed I can. We have the room, he's just loathe to invest money in my latest "project". lol. I don't know if I want to breed, but I do want to get more betta. I'm wondering if I can't divide it in half. Use one half for a 14 gallon sorority, and split the other half into 2 or 3 male tanks. Do you think that would be cruel to the fish? I don't want to stress them by putting them all so close together.

Oh that would look so pretty! And there would be so much room... It wouldn't stress any of them too much? Hmm.. could use something less see-through for the dividers. So much to do. Well til it's ready, Tidbit will stay in the 2 gallon. It's not the Hilton, but she'll be happy once things are settled.

Maybe a small community on each side if you divide it twice, or you could divide it 3 times
