    I'm curious what is the most anyone has ever had in terms of pet bettas. Only include spawns/broods if you kept them as pets please!

    At one time?
    Coolie, Babie, Ember, NightHawk, Mer, Tank, Mama, Ruby, Max...
    They were the Betta Babies I had at my peak at the end of last summer. I'm not counting Fuzzy since I only had him for a week and I can't remember if I bought ruby and Max before him or not... Unfortunatly I lost 3 of them over the summer (as well as the boys I bought to replace them) and Have lost Tank and Ember since then. (RIP boys). That was a wild crew when I had them all that's for sure :p

    I'll be at a new record on Wednesday (8 + the 5 "pets" I have right now) However since the majority of the new betta's coming in are breeders I'm not counting them :p

    The most I had at one time was 4 (it will be 4 again soon), but the total bettas I have had is 5 since I started keeping them.

    Hmm all together I have probably had 12 or so - the last time I had them was years ago so I don't remember how many I had then.

    I have seven, and I got them all in the last month or so, so I'd have to say "seven and counting!" lol

    I had 10 at one time years ago. They were all in betta bowls. This was back when my daughter was 2. Now I'm trying to figure out how to find space for 8 more 5 gallon tanks.

    I have had 21 Betta's in the past 3 years of fishkeeping most of them I had to re home last year when my hubby got sick with cancer, and we lost the house, and had to downsize and I could only take one tank with me :( But I'm happy to say most are still doing very well in there new homes :)
