3 bettas in college?
I've been bit by the betta bug, and I'd LOVE to have another one before going back to college in August. I do know that the Petsmart by me occassionally has Half Moon and Crown Tails, but I don't know whether I should get a betta from there or from Aquabid. I'm absolutely in LOVE with some of my finds on Aquabid.
Also, I need to invest in a 10 gallon, but there is a chance that I won't be able to get one YET, and I will have to stick with putting the betta in the other tank I have in storage right now (it's a 2 gallon, like Buddha's except it is a rectangle).
My mom also might buy me another tank depending on the price, so I can get a 5 gallon as long as it's able to be divided. Knowing that bettas are hardy (and also that I will have a roommate who will be at school 90% of the time), I won't be bringing the fish back and forth with me unless it is summer/winter break. Last year I brought Buddha back with me every time. -.-
I could also use the 2 gallon Buddha has and put a 3rd betta in there. Altogether that comes out to 7 gallons (if I get a 5) so I'm still okay with the Student Housing Rules for my college.
Would it be smart to have a 5 gallon and a 2 gallon, or just a 10 gallon and maybe split it into 3? I'm not getting any other fish or snails, only bettas so they would be the only living things in the tank.
I still have 3 months, so my mind might change, but I was hoping I could get some advice from experienced betta owners :)

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops
