PetMania's Sorority

So, today I am going to PetSmart to start my sorority. So excited.

Anyways, I'll explain all of my sorority 'adventures' here. I currently have one female, Athena, and she is in the ten gallon right now. She has never been on the other side of the divider, so i know that she won't be as territorial there.
I read on this forum that overstocking is better than understocking when it comes to sororities. So for my 10gal, the max will be 10 girls.

So this is my game plan:
-2 VTs
-2 CTs
-2 HMs
-2 PKs

I just want a variety of tail types and colors, so yeah.

Sounds like a good plan! Wish I was brave enough to start a sorority but I would be constantly worried about them not getting along!

Mom to 5 bettas (Xenos, Willy, Reggie, Owen & Houdini), 2 guinea pigs, 1 turtle....oh and 2 humans! :)

Good advice, Matt. If one gets sick they all get sick. Petmania, good luck! I can't wait to see what you end up getting.

Thanks. Went to Petco tonight and my dad didn't let me get the females. I am now in a mood. He said I can't get the females until Hercules is adopted. Ugh. Well, I can't start my sorority until that happens.

I had to search through my inbox for this lol.

So, I got a female last week (started quaranting her) and named her Jing Jang. She's an HM, so I can cross one of those off the list. Pics are in my album.

For some reason some people can't see the pictures I upload :/

Anyways, she is a red cambodian. I have wanted one for quite awhile now.

DOn't know when I am going to get the other females, though I have offered to adopt 2-3 from members here (definetly getting one). An HMEE salamander (really pretty), a blue VT, and possibly (we'll see) a black HM.
