Starting my Sorority

Well I've done the research and have a nicely cycled 20 gallon long rather heavily planted running in my den... now all it needs are some lovely ladies. So today I went to two Petcos, two Petsmarts, and two Walmarts. First was a trip to the furthest Petco with my husband. He did nothing but moan about how much they were so that was the only store he went with me to. :P



This little girl didn't want to cooperate so this is the best shot I got of her. :P

Then I dropped the husband off and went to the first Walmart which was a bust so I proceeded directly to the first Petsmart.





Then it was off to the next Petco where I picked out three more little darlings!






Two more at the next Petsmart!





And lastly I decided to go to Walmart. By this time I was getting pretty tired and I almost didn't go. Honestly I wish I had gone there first! They must have just gotten a shipment in because they had some really really beautiful girls! It was hard to choose just one as I only had room in my sorority for one more. (Going to have a total of 11 and already have my grown baby betta girl, Belle in the big tank.)


Unfortunately she wouldn't cooperate for the camera but trust me... she's awesome. Black with bright green and red on her fins... so awesome. I've always wanted a betta this color and I find her at Walmart of all places.




Here's a shot of all of them in their cups.



And now they're all in a very random assortment of containers while I wait the two weeks to make sure they're healthy.

20 gallon long - The cories and the tetras.
20 gallon tall - The Platies, Dwarf Gourami
10 gallon divided - Ryu and Slick the betta boys
10 gallon - Vriska Bell the female betta and Pupa Pan the tiger nerite
Ferret Room - Ollie, Riley, Ellie, Jet, Charlie, Cosmo, Casper, WIZARD!, and Champy
D.I.P. Izzie, Dee Dee, Ada, Draco, Penny, Toby, Jet, and Dexter

I love that black and white marble girl! They are all beautiful, though. Good luck! :D

Makes me want to go shopping for females, but I don't really need any more :X

Wow! That's a lot of girls. Good luck to you!

Why did I become a fishkeeper in the first place...? Because someone has to look out for the fish who have no one on their side.

My kitchen is really warm. I have a thermometer in one and or reads 76. Not the warmest but it could be worse.

In the picture the marble looks black but she's really a dark green and the tips are all cellophane like. She's my husband's favorite :)

oh no, which one was your favorite? I really like what I can see of the little lady who wouldn't let you get a good picture, she's got a cute tail
