I named mine for Rosie the Riveter :P
GREAT MINDS think alike!! The pic makes her look more red, but she's got a kind of red/white checker board on her body but it never comes out in pics. She's the biggest of ALL my Bettas, including the males & is definitely the one in charge of the tank.

Thank you and I'm so sorry for the loss of your girl. I think I would be with you on not rushing out to get another.

I find during the morning during the feeding time is when the girls get FEISTY. Usually I try to have breakfast in front of them so I can see if anyone's got any injuries.

Also over the weekend, I created a little hangout/feeding platform for them. Since some nicer pellets I feed them sink within 2 seconds, they fall on the platform instead of getting lodged in the gravel.

The hardest thing about a sorority is getting too many girls.

Since bettas come in so many different colors, you sort of want them all.

I've NEVER seen a orange one or a white one in the store. If I do and they're healthy, they're coming back with me.

Also I noticed a lot of the girls like to attack the victim from above. There's a few with missing scales off the top of their head. I haven't figured out who's responsible for those sneak attacks.

Keeping my eyes open.

Here's the final 5. The little ones seem to get along the best.

they're very pretty, MSG!

Ours get fiesty when I fast them for a day, so usually, I'll do a one-feeding day twice a week instead of a full fasted day. They don't mind digging in the gravel for extra kibble, though, so I don't mind when pellets sink.

Our Walmart has had some giant females that I've been eyeing, but all of the more colorful ones are gone now. I think my husband wants something flashy, if we get a new one.

I do see orange females from time to time in my area. I'm not sure what we're lacking now. I think a marble or a dragonscale female perhaps.

I had a feeling when I was typing that out someone would bring up the pokemon theme. haha...

Same deal here. If I see a flashy girl I'll consider bringing her home. But they're RARE and usually when they're in the cups, they're freaked out anyway. So you rarely see their true colors.

I saw a similar betta like buttercup, & thought long and hard, but put her back because not enough color.

Once you add too many girls to the tank, that's when the problems start.


In the picture I posted, there's two shots where 3 of the girls are doing "Charlie's Angels" type poses.

Not sure if anyone noticed their resemblance.
