I want to at least round it to 9 when I find a black CT with red fins and then if I find another that looked like that girl, Definitely grabbing her!

But I'm happy you go her! She's going to a great home!
Thank you! I have to admit there was a EE girl yesterday that was nice (not the best) and I almost went for her but she was already bidded on so I debated but then felt bad so I didn't which is fine :P

Currently I'll have 9 if I get all the girls :P I am debating though on a 5th...I don't have the room to separate each individually beyond cups (which I'll need to get 5 more cups before I head home for 2 weeks >_< ) but I have one 20 gallon, one 10 gallon, one 5 gallon, and two 2.5 gallon tanks so I feel that if I don't or cannot use my 20 I could separate the girls into all those tanks.

BUT anywho :P trust me you don't need to encourage a hoarder to be fish lady!

Here are the girls I've bidded on/won:

http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...ashm1366477801
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...ashm1366468202


I've been thinking about maybe dropping one of the girls from that group. I do know I cannot hold back but I thought about contacting the seller and telling them that I don't have the room for one more girl. But at the same time each one of those girls are interesting to me. The Orange girl is because I don't have that color in my tank, the two double tails have such interesting colors that fascinates me and the Black Faced girl also interests me but at the same time I think I could let her go...but I feel horrible for saying that!

These are my 'next options' girls and if I were to stick to my rules I'd only have one more spot to adopt one of these girls.

I really wouldn't mind another EE girl :) http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1366927547

I like how white she is but there's other fish from TMT bettas that I've been eyeing and she's been bidded on and I don't NEED her so http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1366628651

I love her colors! http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1366646530

Her because I want some red in my tank as well
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1366573639

So I don't know the two blue girls make me feel like I'm adding too much of the same color (I have to admit I hate thinking of these individuals as just shiny moving objects, that's why I like buying from petco so I can meet them before but at the same time I like the idea of picking out colorful girls or like my EE girls, bettas I won't find at my local petco

My dream is to educate the world about animals and show them that they are just as important as us

5 gallon with Socrates
20 gallon long with 2 new boys (divided)

Not long ago on Ebay, two of those wall-o-tank systems, like they have at Petco/Petsmart were up for auction. True. They did not sell.
A store must have been dismantled.
I know a few of you here could use that!!! :)

It would be nice to be able to drain %50 of water in all tanks at once with the turn of one valve :) And refill all with a turn of another :)

Ugg I don't have the luxury of just going to to bathroom, I have to go to the kitchen sink! But yes, those tanks would be amazing to own! So much you could do with them!
