Talking hello there!

Hiya! My name is Akuma and I have mulitple tank syndrome and 18 fish! I own 9 bettas, 7 guppies, and a corydora (very bad fish sitter killed his three friends TuT) I've had fish for as long as I can remember, and even before that. I've only had bettas though, and kept them in small tanks.
Three years ago I got a divided 2.5 gallon and a red veiltail male that my brother named Ocean-Pony and a blue twin tail male named Sebastian. Sebastian only lived for about a month before wedging himself inside of an ordainment and dying.
After that I got Zico, a crowntail male that i don't quite know what his coloration was called, grey with blue and red tips on his fins. Very beautiful. But after a couple of months he got sick and I didn't want anything to do with Ocean-Pony and Zico anymore and I put the tank in my brother's room where they barely got fed and stayed in the cold. My step-dad bought a heater eventually and they seemed to both perk up and only then I moved them back into my room.
After Zico died I was devastated, and at that time my best friend got hugely involved in bettas and had four. I bought a 0.8 gallon and two new bettas! These two bettas were a pink and purple veiltail male named Kumajouro and a blue, white, and red marble halfmoon named Koda. Koda was the fish that really got me into fish keeping. He was a stunning sight and had such a cute personality and I adored him and he seemed to like me.
He and Ocean-Pony (who I'd have for about a year and a half at that point, maybe even two) slipped through the divider and got in a really bad fight, Koda was almost dead.
I had received a 10 gallon tank that I never wanted to use but now was that time. I eventually filled up that ten gallon with a heater, filter, guppies, and corydoras.
Also after I set up the ten gallon, I whisked Ocean-Pony away to a 0.5 gallon he'd sit in for months and bought two new male bettas to put in the divided 2.5 gallon. They were Tarou, a cellophane twin tail halfmoon, and Icho, a black twin tail halfmoon.
I started doing research and found out how horrible the tank they were in were for them. But the death of Koda wounded me and it took about 2 months for me to get enough money to buy a new tank and I did, dividing it and buying a third betta, Allistor, a cambodian dumbo halfmoon.
Ocean-Pony is now three and lives in the 2.5 gallon all by himself, with plants and a couple of decorations. I have three 10 gallons also, two divided for bettas. So in total my bettas are Ocean-Pony, a red male veiltail, Tarou, a now half cellophan and half grey male twin tail halfmoon, Icho, a black male twin tail halfmoon, Allistor, a male cambodian dumbo halfmoon, Calypso, a Cambodian crowntail female, Aggie a female cambodian veiltail, Aqua Marine a female blue crowntail, Lucifer/Luci a blue white and black halfmoon male, and lastly Kessel, my male dream fish, a black with silver scales crowntail.
And those are my fish!

welcome! Glad to hear that you did your research and definitely improved their life! I'd love to see some pics of the fishies in question, they sound so cute!

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

Hello and welcome to the forum. I'm still chuckling over the name Ocean-Pony :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

XD He was originally my brother's fish, so he got to name him. Before Ocean - Pony, we had two female bettas, a blue halfmoon if i remember correctly and a red veil tail. The red female was also my brothers, and her name ended up being Lego - Girl.
