3 new girls for Pitluvs

Well, the herd is getting thin in the female tank, I lost Tatsu my blue dragon HM, and her sister Kaida is in isolation after a bad fin tearing episode so it only leaves the 4 VT's in the tank. I noticed it's a little heated in there lately so I decided to pick up some more females tonight. Of course I looked for the ones needing a home the most.

The first two I got are the Bettas in this video that I am focusing on. This was taken at the pet store. One is so horribly thin it makes me cry. She looks like a head on a stick. The third girl I bought was in the tank beside the females, with mature rainbow fish that were about 3" long. I can only imagine what could have happened to her :(

No names yet, although we may call the skinny one Minnie lol

Those girls are so lucky that you found them when you did. I'm sure they will be fat in no time in your care.

The chunky girl is one I brought home in December, but the ones I took home the other night were there in December as well. I don't know why this store's females are so skinny :(

That isn't a betta, that's some kind of mini-discus. :p

Naw, I'm glad little Minnie has a home with you. She is so cute and it's criminal that she is so skinny!

Life.
