Wow!! I thought having just 12 (when I did have 12) was bad!!! I bet it's difficult to keep track of everything on them!!!! I noticed you are in AL. Whereabouts are you? I am in TN!

4 males (3 crowntail, 1 plakat) and 4 females (2 crowntails, 2 veiltals)

I'm close to the TN state line, so really far north AL.

I have a revolving water change schedule to keep up with everyone. I didn't end up with 27 overnight.. It's kinda evolved... I don't have many furry pets anymore so I can manage it alright.

yea, I guess when you don't have all the others running around it's not so bad. And I am really close to the state line as well. I am in Marion County. And that's how my betta population emerged... I would go to the pet store and when I did I would see one I liked and would be like, hmmm, I have room for one more... LOL

At one point I did end up with 14 new bettas overnight. I had taken in breeding stock from a man in Cali. I rehomed 4 of them, 3 ended up dying later on, but I still have the 7 sisters he sent.
