Question bettas!!!!!!!!!

Hey everyone, I have a big addiction think u can help? I can't quit buying bettas, lol I have 10 females and 3 male crowntail, 1 halfmoon, and 1 veiltail. Does everyone have this problem? U just can't have 1. I thought I could, now everytime I walk past them I end up taking 1 and some type of aquarium for it home. I guess as long as there out there I will keep this problem huh? I'll send some pics if I can get some clear ones.

Do you keep them all in a tank together or do you have that many tanks?

Haha...it's a terrible addiction huh?!

I have 6 and keep scheming to get more. I find putting limits on tank sizes (mine is a 5 gal minimum) helps a lot because then if you can't afford to fulfill your requirements or you don't have room it helps to make sure you're not overburdening yourself. Plus it helps me to aquire bettas at a slower pace so I always know if I can handle the next one.

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )
