I have two - a white one and a blue one.

I always have to resist the urge to buy more!

Hehe... well I'm in the same boat. I've had to cap myself at 4 tanks with various fish. My male betta shares accomodation with a group of white clouds, and the 4 females live with some cories and rasboras.

I also have two right now, both males. The most I've ever had at one time is 3, but it takes so much work to clean their bowls. (Which reminds me... I need to do that today!)

Time to update - my lovely white fish died.

I bought a new betta with a beautiful tail and a sad-looking red one that's doing much better since he came from the store...
Stephie189 PRO 12 years ago
Righ now I have 3 males.

One is very old, I've had him for at least 4 years. He's been kind of sluggish lately, favoring the bottom of his container and not eating much, so I've been worried about him.

It's always so tempting to buy a lot them (especially when you see the nasty water they're in at the pet store), theyre so beautiful. Been a betta fan for 5+ years now and have had both males and females.

I don't know what happened, I started with one male, a beautiful orange body that fans out into full crimson tails. Then I saw one that was a perfect sky blue...and had to have him. Then I started to feel the need to "save them" from those disgusting little cups the pet stores have them in.

I always pick the ones lying at the bottom of the cup...to bring home and let them live like royalty in heated, filtered and delightfully decorated new homes.

The bottom line is... I have 6 now.

Who! I just brought 2 crowntails yesterday! I haven't had betta's for a few years, and never had a crown tail before. So expect lots of photos >_>
misa212 12 years ago
Valerie, I can relate. I had 7 at one point, all died from old age and now I'm ready to start again! I love the colors and tail variations, and it always seems that there's some that need saving, too.

we currently have twenty-one bettas (thirteen boys and eight girls) and seven cories. most of our bettas were sickly ones (veils and crowns) we'd see at the pet stores, usually in the back of the shelf, laying on the bottom of their dirty cup. we also have four halfmoon doubletails from thailand. looove our little guys/gals. i'm sure the number will grow and grow.
TartanHearts 11 years ago
I have 3 right now, two males and one female. I would have more, but we have issues with space and lack of heat/filtration. As soon as I can figure out a good way to have more, I will!

I have one now; have had 3 total (Jonsey, Herbert, and Brody). @haleyluna- your story is similar to how I got my bettas. I saw them on the shelf and felt badly for them so I took one home. If I had more time to dedicate to them I am sure I'd have a houseful too!
Riverjackx 11 years ago
Hah, I'm digging the "twenty bettas". I only have one, at the moment, though I have had more.. and I plan on getting a few more. I have known hobbyists (not necessarily into breeding all the time, or show) that have had at least fifty bettas at one time or another. Obviously, bettas are addicting. ;]
_____jstray 11 years ago
Only one at the moment - my first one, got him last week.

They are addicting and very relaxing to watch. I might get some more just to also save them from the plastic containers the pet store keeps them in.

I used to have somewhere around 25 bettas. Halfmoon (HM), Veiltail (VT), Crowntails (CT), Plakats (PK), and a Rosetail (RT). I have since found them a new home as I had to move.
Just this past weekend I was lucky enough to find a blue/green Butterflu HM (Marlyn) and a red, blue, and purple RT (Samurai) at Petco of all places. Little did they know what a HM or RT is so I got them at "normal" male betta price (half the price of their CTs :D). They are pretty young and I consider them my treasures :) So I currently only have 2. Remembering all the maintenence, I am trying to keep it my count at that as I have a parrot and 2 finches to clean up after as well.
We just moved over the weekend and have yet to get our internet hooked up (however, we have an appt. in a couple days), then I will get their photos up here.

I have a 5 gallon aquarium set up with a 3 way divider. Had 3, lost the runt of the bunch yesterday :(. So the 2 remaining in the tank didn't have to feel the emptiness in the one corner I went out and bought another one. I love Betas, it"s fun to get them to interact with you.

Sorry forgot to mention that the photos I posted to the group were before I got my fish tank, when they were in separate bowls.

Currently 6 with 2 more on the way when a certain spawn grows up. I am trying to keep it low because I move when I graduate in may, but after I move, the sky is the limit ;)

A few years ago, I went through a phase where I somehow acquired a ton of fish, and ended up with three male bettas, a community tank of 10 females, and a larger female that had to live on her own because she was too aggressive. That also led to me getting tanks for some dwarf puffers, cories, and a 72 gallon tank for an oscar, which was very bad for my floor beams.

I now only have one male betta, and it's more than enough at the moment, even though I would love to also have a female, since they seem to have much more personality.
