Post 2 Bettas in 3 days...

So I started last month with no betta, on the 7th I got a VT, Orian

He soon passed early this month

but on november 9th I got another Betta, a red and platinum CT, Pisces.

Pisces is still happily living in a 3 gallon. well my mom and G-ma wanted to get me gifts both gave me a money limit of 50,

so on the 6th of this month I went online and bought a $40 Koi HM PK, Libra (should be getting here today/tomorrow) He is my first Thailand import, Libra shipped from a great importer in California, Arielbetta (great 100% recommend her!) with my g-ma's 50 I got a 5 gallon, drift wood AQ grass and a huge silk plant.

Yesterday 12/9 I went to get some AQ gravel for said tank above and ran into this little buddy, a Pink Orchid with blue grizzle at Walmart... I couldn't help myself!

Wonderfully, although Libra got here before his tank arrived so he has to stay in a quarantine 1 gallon. which he doesn't enjoy, he hates the shape of the tank particualarly but luckily his tank should be here either today or tomorrow. Gemini has to stay in my other quarantine til' thursday-friday for me to get another 5 gallon.

yeah, my tanks crashed (problem is fixed now) but Libra, gemini, and Virgo died. But just this past week I got a HM a RT, and two more CTs so I am back up to 5 bettas, I'll be getting a female HM here soon to breed with my Dragon HM.
