5 New Girls!

Today I went to an LFS that I'd been to before & had seen they had female Bettas in tanks instead of cups; I bought FIVE! I set up my QT tank & am getting them acclimated, will leave them in there for 2-3 wks & then add them to the sorority. They look healthy & I'm so tempted just to add them to the big girl tank but won't. Hopefully these girls are better stock than Petsmart or Petco. These girls are not crown tails although they had some, I may go back & get a 2-3 of them, they had some beauties. These girls will bring my sorority up to 11. YAY!

Did somebody say PICTURES??

OK, for those who want to see the new girls here they are, I don't how to put text around each pic so here's the order they are in . . .
1) Being acclimated in their bag 2) the Girl in CHARGE, she bosses everyone 3) split tail, I think its a genetic deformity & I think she may be a little touched in the head if you know what I mean. 4) the Red Girl, love the bright red 5) Light girl, kind of opalesque 6 & 7) My FAVE if I picked a fave which of course I don't because that'd just be wrong , Yellow with an overlay of grey

Thank you. Interesting, she's the 1st female I've seen like that.

Thank you. Nope, I've never seen a double tail female. If they didn't have it at Petsmart or Petco, I didn't see it.

Your DT is adorable!
Your girls are all so beautiful and must be super happy in the home. Saw the home you have for them. Very lucky girls! And sooo beautiful, I hate looking at your tank because I get insanely jealous, but I love looking at it cause it's so pretty!

And while we're at it ;o
My DT Athena




Her fins are ripped, I figure nipped at by the other girls. She's too fragile and small for the sorority life, so I'm currently treating her in another tank. She's such a gorgeous girl and obviously my favourite.
