I definitely prefer metal racks, but this works beautifully for now!

Also, totally going to plug my favorite betta forum, because it really needs some new members and more activity:

Hah I've been going to betta fish.com

Also the only way I would add another fish is if I came across a Dalmatian male.

I've always heard giants and kings were separate and the betta community did not know what kings were. I'd heard the thought that kings were just old bettas but my king lived as long as my other bettas or longer and he was HUGE. None of my other bettas came near his size. They all seem to be plakats as well. I have not seen a Petco King in a while though here.

My guy was just the coolest fish. I really think the kings need a 10 gallon+ though.

Kings and giants have always been synonymous as far as I'm aware. We have them regularly here (there was a super cute yellow boy yesterday). I agree, they definitely deserve the larger tanks. Once we're on our own, my breeders will all have glass 5.5g, but for now... very limited space.

My last fish died really recently so I took down the tank. Now I want to set it back up for a betta.

Y'all are bad influences.

I think I'm going to but need to clean things out first and get it cycling.

What are y'alls setups and specs for your baby betta tanks?

I'm reading 2-3 gallons and 80F. Filter?

I would go with more frequent water changes over a filter, they give off that growth stunting hormone and a filter isn't going to get rid of that. 2-3 gallons sounds great, larger would be fine but you might not be able to find him/her

80F is spot-on. A little lower would be fine (78ish) but they won't grow as quickly.

Default Bettas!

I use a filter in Fred's five gallon but he's not a baby. I like cycled mature tanks for the adults.

The babies don't have a filter and get alternated 50% and 100% water changes daily to remove the growth stunting hormones. They are also currently in half gallons for now, both got stressed in larger tanks. As they get older they will be upgraded into a divided 5 gallon with filter. Their water is kept at 82 degrees.

Welp, Berta and Lupin have switched tanks. Hopefully Lupin is fine in the 20 gallon, so I don't have to find room for another tank!
