Rescue's still going. I just have been busy lately. Been awhile since I've psoted huh?
Well, I was thinking about a rescue sorority. Taking in sick females, taking care of them, and addingthem to my sorority. Might work.

My past rescue, Athena/Athos is doing well. S/he gained a solid, deep red body and an adventurous personality.

He/she sounds cute. I used to have a little red crowntail named Rusty and he had the cutest personality. He got something that took him really fast. Fine one morning then went under his bridge and died a few hours later.

Awe, I'm so sorry DQ.

So I put Hercules and Apollo up for Adoption. I have made a list of supplies needed and how much they cost:

Heater- $20
Silk plants- $10-15
Gravel- $5
5.5gal tank kit- $35
Thermometers- $5

Total: $80

Any suggestions to reduce costs? I really appreciate it, thanks!

Buy heaters online. Grow your own plants. (If you aren't growing plants, or are just growing floaters) don't use gravel. Get tanks on Craigslist.

DQ, That would be so nice of you, but is that against the forum rules?

Matts, I'm gonna go without gravel, and would it make a difference if I used silk plants or real plants? I would have to bleach the silk plants, wouldn't I?

I think I'll also take advantage of PetCo's dollar per gallon sale. Could tubs work, too?

Thanks both of you for your help :)

No, it's not against the rules for someone to offer. It's against the rules for you to ask for donations. Everything can be done via pm.

Ohh, okay. Thanks! I don't want to go against the rules by any means, so that's good to know. Though, I like to 'work' for my pay if you know what I mean.

So, cannot start my sorority until Hercules is adopted. I am not adopting the 4 betta from Tank Gurl as family and friends took them instead.

So with the idea of a rescue sorority gone......I guess Bloo's Betta Rescue will be saving baby bettas for now.

The PetCo I went to only had 1 baby *Dad said I couldn't get him*.

So I was thinking about my current adoption fee. Since i am raising the babies, I guess $5 will stay the same. When I get more money, I might charge a smaller fee.

Just to let you know, I am open for suggestions and adoptions. I'll also gladly foster a betta for someone, preferrably on the west coast, especially in the winter time.

Thanks so much for all the support!

I'm sorry things aren't working out for you right now. Maybe someone here will need someone to adopt their fish.
