I had to yank a girl out of the sorority yesterday, she was always on the bottom of the hierarchy but she ended up beat up and stressed and I felt like if I didn't get her out, something worse was going to end up happening. She got some sort of worms for the second time, so I jarred her with aq salt and paraguard which took care of the worms overnight. I went to do a water change today, and I dropped her in the sink. But she's starting to recover which is good I guess.

Our situations are almost exactly the same! Had to take a girl out of my sorority a while back because she was at the bottom of the pecking order too. And I was doing a water change as well today. Dropped my betta in the sink by accident too! Just not a good day today.

The thing is, I dropped her in soap suds. I got her out ASAP and into clean water though and she was fine. Still very nerve wracking.

Also, I will be getting a couple more girls from catw0manM

Soap suds Glad she's ok. My sink was empty :s

Sounds awesome, how many female bettas will you have? Make sure to post pics once they all arrive!

I don't know how many I am getting, two or maybe three, all depends. That will put me at six or seven. My sorority is at three right now and I am extremely nervous... Three is a bad number. That and I have a... Well... Intense sorority.

VERY feisty. You know how you see shows with sharks jumping out of the water when meat is being tossed at them? My girls are like that at feeding time. One of them bites me all the time. XD

Lol, sharks and bettas, good comparison.

Your bettas sound adorable. All of my female bettas jump for their food now lol :S Kinda worried for them, but I'm really amazed to see how high and accurate their jumps are!

My betas aren't accurate at all. They're just like "Oh, food?!" Then they jump as dramatically as possible across the tank. Fools.
