As the title states....Just happen to have an empty 5 gallon Mini-bow, filter, 25 watt heater, unused (extra) silk plants, hide out decorations, Betta food, water conditioner, etc. Well....7 pounds of gravel and 1 aquarium thermometer later......It's a tiny girl...in her very own 5 gallon mansion...I must admit in all of my years of fish keeping this tiny girl is a new one on me. I have never owned a female Betta in my life. She was just too tiny and sweet to pass up...I had to have her. Right now she is in her 5 gallon in a seperate room away from my guy's tank. Eventually, I will move her and her tank right next to my guy's tank. During the rest of their lives they will only be able to view each other through her acrylic tank and my guy's glass tank. They are not a breeding pair and never will be. I did let my guy look at her while she was still in the cup. My mom said "look he is making himself look fluffy for her." Ha..Ha..Ha..Yea, mom they do that once in awhile....On another note: I just wanted to cry at looking at all of the Bettas in Walmart....So, there is my happy and sad story for the day..
