Bit by the Betta Bug

I am new to this forum, but have been keeping fish for most of the last year. I have a 55 gallon tank set up with a few fancy goldfish. But more recently I started to take in Bettas. I currently have 3 males, 2 of which are veiltails and 1 crown. I am in the process of upgrading them from approximately 1 gallon bowls to a 10 gallon tank devided into 3 sections which will give them approximately 3.3333 gallons each. I will be adding heat and filters when they get to move up.

Someone once told me that fishkeeping was addictive and I honestly beleive they were right. I think that when my goldfish either outgrow the 55 or pass away I will turn it into a tropical tank also....... but that may be many years down the road for me.

Welcome to the forum!

How many fancy goldfish have you got in the 55g? If it's only a couple, they would probably be very comfortable in there for the rest of their lives, which could be very long. So, you might just have to buy a second tank for your tropical tank! Your bettas will also very much appreciate the upgrade.

Have you got any photos of your tanks?

Yes, it's horribly addicting. I need a shirt that says "I do not need another tank, I don not need another tank, I do not need another tank!"
