Hey all, so I had been wanting to do a sorority for a while now and had asked my LFS if they would get any female betta's in and they said they would try. Their last two batches didn't go so well and they all ended up dying but this time they've all survived and so I picked up 4 healthy females today! I was very happy that they hadn't been seperated and while I watched them swim around there was virtually no fighting/tail biting or anything which I know can change in a flash but so far so good.
I also picked up a "female" from walmart because she looked so adorable and like she needed to come home with me haha so she's currently in QT at the moment being medicated, she was kind of thin, her caudal is clamped and she's been a big lathargic but she's been alright since she's been home. But the curious thing about her, and I'll have to wait a while, but her ventrals seem really long to be a female so I'll have to wait till she's better to see what gender she really is. Hard to get a look at her but I can't see an eggspot at the moment. So she'll be a mystery for a while :)
Hard to see her back there but she's just hanging out. She's swimming around every now and then but for the most part just sits there, her tail is also abnormally short where her body is very long.
In other news, one of my boys Piebald (yes named after his coloration because I didn't want to keep calling him "the new guy" when I first got him and piebald kind of stuck. However I am open to suggestions for a real name)
when I first took him home, his fins were ragged, he had a bit of ammonia poisoning and had a fungus going over his left eye. He's now since recovered from both the poisoning and fungus and now just working on his fins!
Now I'm naming the girls and I've got a few picked out so far.
For the first girl she's a yellow VT, I was either thinking Pineapple (a more common name lol) or Dust, kind of leaning Dust because I haven't seen it used as much.
The next girl is either Firestar, Starfire or Phoenix. She's a solid red VT and the cutest of them all, just has such a great personality to her!
The third is what I believe is a Double Tail solid red but I have no named picked for her yet, she's a feisty one though. She could also be named Phoenix if I decided on another name for the previous girl.
Here's Firestar/Starfire/Phoenix and the DT togehter
The fourth is an Opaque, the light doesn't do her justice. But she's a pinkish with a baby blue sheen over her and the edges of her fins are red. I'm thinking of calling her Opaline or Aurora.
