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.

Sorry! :I We couldn't really judge on the tank..

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Oh. I guess it's too late to grab a photo then.

Thanks!! I bet my girls would be excited if they knew they were first place (I'm not surprised there were so many winners since everyone has such beautiful girls and tanks!!) Congrats to everyone and their girls :)

Sadly, my one girl passed away today. She pineconned BADLY about 2 months ago, so she was living solo in a kritter keeper. She is in a fewmof the contest pics

RIP INDIA

Oh Wow. The girls in the sorority will be so pleased. Everyone has some beautiful sorority tanks here. I like girl bettas the best.

Sorry about your loss tikibirds. She remind me of my girl Binky who passed away last month the same way.

First - thanks for masterminding the contest LeBron, and giving everyone a chance to show off their girls! I've got probably the smallest and newest group, but I'm proud of them and based on everyone else's entries, I look forward to seeing where they go!

Next, congrats to everyone who entered, it's nice to see sorority tanks - everyone has such pretty fish and tanks! I look forward to my plants growing in better (For the first time, a water wisteria looks like it's gonna make it!)

You said second place gets to pick two to be drawn? For me, how about Christmas and Shine?

And lastly, I now have 5 girls in the tank, and I'm going to start Minnow (Real name still TBD...any ideas?) floating in the tank tonight or tomorrow so everyone can get used to her. It was SO CUTE watching the three crowd around and inspect Grif and Midnight as they floated for their QT time. (I'm now also thinking that people hassling me to get the 7 originals all released quickly and threatening to do it for me was a major reason I lost so many, grrr. TAKE IT SLOW!). By the time I was satisfied that these two were going to be fine, the original three girls were used to them and considered them old hat.

Midnight came in a cup that was literally half the size of any other Betta cup I've seen. It was terrible! But she is doing great so far. (PS, I put her in a bigger one for her QT in the tank)

Grif (named with great originality - Girl Red Fish) was very pale and clamped, but her colors have come back, her fins open, and she's been having a ball exploring every nook and cranny in the tank.

I've come to the conclusion that Shimmer is never going back in the big tank, the injury to her mouth makes it hard for her to eat. She does fine with mini pellets in her little QT tank, and is even starting to regain her colors, but I just don't think she can transition back to the big tank with the eating handicap. So once Minnow goes back, she will get to move in and be froggy's BFF.
