uh, for me it differs. My old boy faux is in a 1 gallon because he has a tumor that is causing swiming problems. I also have a 3 way divided ten gallon, a split 5.5 for 2 females, and a 5.5 for my plakat boy, and a 2.5 for my baby betta.

8 female bettas and 12 male bettas

Two 7 gallon cubes at the moment, for one Betta each (plus two assassin snails). This feels like a nice size for me and fits well with my budget and decor too :)

I have three 5.5 gallon tanks, two of my males and one of my females inhabit these. I have a 20 gallon with one of my males, and 6 corys. Then my 125 gallon that will house probably about 30 females, and then 4 males in dividers, and a combination of corys, snails, and shrimp.

My Petco king males are each in his own 10 gallon.

All (but one) of my females are each in her own 5.5 gallon.

The exception female is in her own 6.6 gallon tank (it's a Petco bookcase tank - longer and more shallow than a 5.5 gallon; she has chronic SBD and/or spinal injury that makes her a wonky swimmer, thus the longer, shallower tank).

10 gal and a breeder trap.

I have the class fluval on my dresser, so im out of surfaces at the moment. I'm going to remove the fluval and get a 5gal for the rescue.

I really should have tanks on hand if I'm going to rescue any more little fish. I couldn't let the floater to die in a breeder trap. He gets mostly free roam of the 10 while the normal resident chills in the breeder trap. They get switched up every 2 days, but the rescue gets longer because he's nicer to the other residents and actually uses some of the decoration.

I have a 10, 3 and 2 5 gallons. I personally like the 5 gallons for individual fish. But the 10 was on sale and the 3 was a good price. Plus Killian really likes his 3 gallon home.
