Thanks I got all three from Mo.

The dragon is about 2 months older than the EEs... They are so tiny :) I've never had such small bettas before... All three handled shipping quite well, too. Okami, the dragon, still has some fin damage, but Stellas fins healed up quickly and all of them have been eating for me super well since I got them. They are really active and spunky.

Shadyr's new Sorority in the worksish

It's nice seeing everyone's girls!

Finally got at least...a picture of all of mine. If there's one thing my bettas have in common it seems to be an abhorrence of anything that can take a picture. Camera = SWIM AWAY FAST! And the good camera battery ran out and I couldn't find the recharger, so there's the additional handicap of taking pictures with phone.

So off we go! First, the three who are already in the tank!

Christmas, a greenish/tealish and red crowntail

Shine, a golden yellow veiltail, who also seems to be the leader of the pack

Snowflake, a mostly white crowntail who will no doubt marble up on me She's the smallest of the three in the tank.

My two girls who are in the wings:
Minnow (Permanent name once she grows up a little more) was a transparent silvery grey slip of a thing with signs of SBD when I brought her home. She's sharing a small tank with my lonely ADF while she grows a little. the SBD signs cleared up in a couple of days, and she's gaining color and losing the stripes. I'm guessing based on her size and color that she was barely older than those Baby Bettas.

And finally, Shimmer, whose first stint in the tank did not end well. She seems to be recovering nicely and if she continues to do well, she can go back in. She's a tough gal - I wasn't sure she was going to make it at first. FWIW, she got sick, she wasn't hurt by the other girls. She's a double ray CT.

And they have friends. You probably saw the tetras in some of the other pictures. There are 7 neons and 4 glowlines, who all seem to flock more or less together.

The cleanup crew is currently:
2 Threeline Corydoras

And 2 Golden Dojo Loaches, who would not cooperate by being in the same area to be photographed together. Very wiggly too.

And last but not least, the tank itself. I have it set on timers to do daylights for 8 hours for the plants, and the rest of the time it's on the "nightlights".

Jasper very much approves of the new tank - apparently it's like HBO for cats. His favorites are the loaches.

Unhappy I'm too late :(

Wow this really makes me sad because my whole sorority of 12 Bettas in my 30 gallon tank all just died one by one over the last couple of months from a mystery illness except for one female Betta left that is still barely clinging to life. *SIGH* I guess that leaves me out of this contest. *I am heart broken at the loss of all my special Bettas*

Anyway.... good luck to those lucky Betta owners who have such wonderful female Bettas and fantastic sorority tanks. These pictures are beautiful!

OOh! I am so sorry to hear that! I had something like that going around through my sorority too. only it happened faster, I think most of my girls were dead within 2 weeks. I'm sorry you have to go through this. Hopefully your last girl survives!

Thank you, and yeah the last female Betta, Violet is doing better since I added Kanaplex to her hospital tank. The last Cory Cat that was in the 30 Gallon is in the hospital tank with her and is doing better as well. I sure hope they make it!
