Each cell will be roughly 6"x6"x6" with both barriers in, with two gallons per cell in the sump.Aegnis said:I can't tell exactly -- how large is each cell? How many gallons of water will it hold?
Also, I think I can see this in your design, but make sure the walls are opaque. Aggressive bettas will get stressed out if they can see their neighbors.
I don't do much tank construction myself, so I can't comment on the system as a whole, but I wish you the best of luck!
I saw that! Super cool! Tbh I just kind of mashed together a bunch of different ideas from some of my favorite fish-tubers. I stol Cory at Aq Co-op's betta water system, lifewithpets' barrier idea (granted they're different), and Gianne from Inglorious bettas was a huge inspiration with her heat strips, and partial carding technique (where I got most of my barrier ideas from).A.

Do a search for "betta shop" on YouTube ("Betta barracks" is an awesome name).
I'm breeding long-fin types, which are usually less active. I've found that smaller tanks only don't work for bettas because of filtration and boredom. To combat filtration, I have the sumps, and to combat boredom I have a number of floating and sinking toys that I can change around fairly often.Kamaile said:I don't know much about building tanks, either, but I think your design seems a little small even for bettas.
I am interested in breeding and selling. In a perfect world, the fish would all have the 2 gallons to swim around in, but I don't have the space for that (especially with so many ideas I have for what I want to breed).A. Rozhin said:I'm interested in why you're doing this -- are you going to breed them, and sell them? I personally would be delighted, and would pay top dollar, to buy a betta kept in filtrated, circulated water with 2 gallons per fish, with thought given to the visual issues that can stress them out.
Yep, keep us posted, I'd buy from you, too. It's hard to find bettas where I feel that care has been given towards their health and well-being. Here's to healthy, hearty fish!aBettaNamedRoy said:That is awesome! If you ever start breeding and selling, please let me know! I'd love to buy from a breeder with your values and setup!
