Went on aquabid.com again...help!!

Hey guys!


So I currently have a nice little sorority tank of 5 beautiful girls :) 3 from different petcos and two from aquabid.com. I for some reason don't like the idea of having odd numbers (and of course want an excuse to adopt more!) so I decided I was going to adopt at least 3 more to make my number 8.

Now don't worry I am actually going to get my 20 gallon tank when I go home (May 10!!) and that will become my girls home :) of course because I'll be then heading right back to college (May 17 or 19) I was just going to stick them in there while home and when we all come back to Berry I was going to set it up and move my two sponge filters from my 5 and 10 gallon (since their maximum is 10 gallon each I hope two means I can put them in the 20 gallon with no worries!).

Of course there's no guarantee that my cycle will take so if I could get some advice on transferring that would be awesome :) (Of course I was going to take water from both of the tanks and putting it into the twenty the best way I can at least with baggies -_____- since I have to get up and move everything to a whole new dorm.

ANYWHO! So the whole point of this was to show the girl that I just bidded on
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...sdt&1366927713

And the several girls I'm debating on (I wanted to at least get one more from petco so that I could feel like I'm helping yet another girl have a wonderful life when she might not other wise. At home there are so amazingly beautiful girls at petco so I wish I would be home sooner!!).

But here are some of the other girls I was considering
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1366628541
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1366927547
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1366533602
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1366627614
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1366477801
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1366468202


Now I thought maybe I could get one more girl from aquabid.com and then get the other from petco...OR...I could maybe bump my limit up to 10 girls so that I could add more girls to my sorority. If I were to cheat and go that high I would not what so ever go higher because in case something happened with my 20 gallon my fall back in my 10 and although several people said you can have 10 girls in a 10 gallon I don't think it would be right to permitting keep them like that. Although 10 in a 20 might be nice especially to keep the peace more settled 10 girls means that there's 10 times the risk of needing 10 separate containers for the just in case. I also just found out I own a snail today so I need to make sure i have a place for him AND my sister has been failing in taking care of my male back home so I am going to try and take him with me as well to college for the summer.


But all in all here are the few girls that I've narrowed down depending on if I would go to 8 or 10 girls.

Also being in college i will have to at least move them 2 times a year once to bring them home for the summer and to bring them back for the fall. I will hopefully be able to communicate with the RA's working for the winter break to care for my girls. But I don't know about the whole water changes...so I may need to consider taking them home 4 times in a year. Or I would stay at college for the winter with my horse. Who knows!

IF I WANTED 8 BETTAS:
I am actually planning on getting this girl because I absolutely LOVE her http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1366468202
I LOVE this seller and I really love multicolors (if you haven't noticed :P ) but I am really wanting a red girl so she would be perfect http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1366628541


IF I WANTED 10 BETTAS:
Including the above and
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1366477801 <I am loving her colors and her two tail look
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1366927547 <if you've noticed my two girls Opal and Ceylon it would be obvious about why I like this girl :) I know her colors aren't out of this world but I am loving them pectoral fins :)

Now of course I did just adopt two girls from petco last weekend so I can say well I 'feel good' for '''saving''' those girls from who knows what. But I do still feel bad for wanting to get fancy bettas (i have been thinking of rescuing and shipping out betas in need).

SO does anyone have any advice for my hour long speech? I honestly want to get the other four but like I said I wish I could just rush over to petco and see what girls i have there.


Also I'd like to add that adopting fish isn't just 'fish' it's like adopting a cat or a dog or a horse. I am a big personality person so really doing adoption through the computer leaves me very little room for emotionally connecting with my girls. So I am like ugh -_____- because I want to be selfish and go all for looks and reviews but at the same time I don't mind spending an hour in front of the cups at petco deciding which girls I get along with well :)

Personally neither of my girl's pectoral fins have been 'destroyed' by my other three. The only thing with big pectoral fins is that they aren't as fast as they could be so they could be open to being picked on but i doubt it would make too much of a difference

I have to say I'm glad that you didn't have the money for her! I am too excited to get her! But I am very sure you will! I am currently at 4 new girls and I just realized that one more is my limit (although i'll be using my 20 gallon so technically...I could go to 11 or 12... Oh gosh I don't know how to stop! lol

Haha yeah, I wouldn't have bid on her if I had the money anyway knowing that you already had.

5 girls is great for a 10 gallon, you can definitely have 8-9 comfortably in a 20....should I stop my encouraging? lol I've got 8 in my 33 right now but they also share it with 7 neons, 6 dwarf cories and a BN pleco. I want to at least round it to 9 when I find a black CT with red fins and then if I find another that looked like that girl, Definitely grabbing her!

But I'm happy you go her! She's going to a great home!
