Glad you could save a few. Just letting you know that those are stress stripes. They should go away when conditions improve. Sorry, I know you thought they were cute. Haha.

Is it just me or are those the two most horrendous looking center pieces for a wedding? Haha Kinda look like a shot gun hillbilly wedding. Poor taste in decor. If i were to use something like this, at least have nice glass rocks. Thank you so much for taking them home!! And sorry if this wedding was someone you personally know, those just look tacky.

Funny story, woman came into my LPS looking for 50 male bettas to order for a wedding. The worker looks at her and says "This is a pet store, not a wedding shop". I nearly died laughing. Then she comes to me and makes a snide remark about the employee. I see him overlooking our convo so I say... "Ya know, he saved you a lot of money actually since they have high needs like heat. Being in those small bowls, you'd probably end up with about 20 floaters by the end of the best man's speach" And she agreed!! The worker nearly died laughing. He likes me.

I just took a look at them and the stripes are fading already. I wondered about the stripes, I didn't think bettas had stripes. I hope the girls don't mind their temporary bowls until I can get out to get a tank. It will only be a couple of days.

Lilly - pretty white female. She was the smallest betta I have ever seen at PetSmart. Barely an inch long!

Girls are so stripey lol They won't mind the bowls until you get a tank, just make sure the waters clean and warm and they'll do fine :)

I want to put Lilo and Poly into a 5gallon tank with a divider. My daughter has a smaller tank (2gal I think) so I know a little on how to care for them. Is a 5gal much different? Do I need a heater and light? I have been trying to find a thread about this so if someone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.
Thanks.

They need a heater but they don't necessarily need a light. Good for you for saving those fish. I bet they'll be gorgeous after they settle down.

Just at Petsmart looking at tanks and dividers. Found TopFin brand divider, has anyone tried it? The smallest I found was for a 10gal tank, not sure If I can cut it to fit. Ideas anyone? Thanks.
