Sorority is ACTUALLY going to happen now.

EDIT: Shoot, wrong section >_> Someone move it please?

All the wheels have set in motion..finally. I found someone who was willing to buy the LED hood. Now I can get the nicer lighting set up for live plants(which is cheaper than the one I bought anyway..hilarious )

I ended up deciding to use a 20 gallon long rather than the 10 or 20 gallon tall. I know it can be done, but hey...bigger is better and...I can get more girls?


So now all I need to do is pick up enough plants to stock the 20 gallon long. I have a tiny chunk of java fern and a moss wall growing in the background. I also just picked up some dwarf water lettuce on here! But I don't have many plants that will make good hiding places for the girls. So that's the priority right now.

But I'm so stoked! I've been waiting to set up the sorority for...well, over a year now.

Right now all I have is my little orange girl. Soon she'll get some companions! I hope she doesn't end up being the bully!

Ooo sororitys are totally worth it! Mine turned out really good since they were living in a sorority together at the LFS since they were young. I bought them young to so I watched them grow. No problems here!! I love sororitys!! Good luck!!

Gathering the plants. They are so overpriced where I live. @_@ So I'm having to buy them a little at a time. This isn't even where the sorority is going to be, this is the 10 gallon I'm keeping that one little girl I bought. I was planning to use a 20 long. But then the plants will be even more spread out! @____@

I did get some free duckweed/dwarf watter lettuce though! So that's nice.

Oh, the ugly stick thing is water wisteria. You can't tell, but it's covered in baby leaves. It lost all it's leaves(because it was grown out of water I believe?) and it's getting new, different shaped ones.

More pictures because I can't help myself.








Also, so nervous. The rest of the girls arrive tomorrow. I need to pick up more plants in the morning before they get here, eek!

They're here! Chard's girls are here!


This big red one is surprisingly one of the more docile girls. Though she and my original girl don't always get along.


This one is shy, this was the best picture I could get


This is the smallest girl, dubbed "Teacup" by my boyfriend. She is his favorite. She's managed to escape all the fighting thus far, but if she gets picked on he might just take her out, lol.


She looks great! She's also fairly calm.


Another shy girl, still hiding


She's the biggest fish, but also the most aggressive. Also stressed out obviously. She flares all the time

There was a big moment of chaos when they were released, but it subsided quickly. Now they are curiously exploring and only flare rarely. Other than the big girl but no one seems to pay much attention to it!












I grabbed several more bunches of wisteria today, trying to stuff in as much as possible.

Also, my girl is a pig! It will be interesting figuring out how to feed these ladies. Nathan did his best on his own but my girl managed to eat something like five pellets. Now she looks bloated and ridiculous.

Okay, tried to get some more high quality pictures. Of course I couldn't get good ones of half the girls, but I got a few!
