Betta Storage?

Hi guys

For those of us that dont have the luxury of a proper filtered barracks system, what is the next best thing?

I was thinking about using a dormant 3' tank, cutting tops off several 2lt coke bottles, with small holes in the side of all bottles. I would have about 6-8 half bottles in the tank with a male in each.....the tank would then have 1 heater and an internal filter to get the water moving.....im hoping the holes would circulate the water and thus filter the water and keep them warm

would this work

any other cheap DIY thoughts?

It's a balance. I have much less disease and deaths in my shared water barracks. I'm sure that's because there's much more water per fish and lots of filtration. Much more stable water conditions mean fewer water changes and fewer disease. I have run both filtered shared water barracks and unfiltered self-contained jars at the same time and the barracks wins hands down. Much fewer deaths and fewer back breaking water changes.
