:( Did she jump out? Aww I'm so sorry for your loss. Don't feel bad though; these things happen and the best thing to do is move on with more knowledge than before. :)
One of my ladies jumped out while I was feeding them and she would've taken the full 4 ft drop but lucky for her and me she hit the stand first so it broke her fall by a lot. I quickly scooped her with a cup; I just couldn't pick her up bare-handed lol

Yeah she did. Everyone has makeshift tops over their containers now. Loose of course so they can still get air. When I go back to Walmart in a bit I may have to get both black girls. I dunno if I can choose between them.. 12 is ok for a sorority right? Or should I really have an odd number? I remember reading somewhere odd numbers are best.

Stocking wise, Aquadvisor says with 12 girls I would be 99% stocked and 103% if I go to the next odd number of 13. They will be sharing a tank with 2 bristle nose plecos and a mystery snail that are already there. Now, the tank is super heavily planted so I was wondering if I could squeak by with being slightly overstocked and under filtered. (I have a Hagen Fluval C2 that is apparently not the strongest filter in the world. I may be able to add another filter in the future but not for at least a month or so after the expense of buying the girls.) What says you? :)

Ah well.. there was only one of the black girls there today so I guess that made my decision for me. Here's a picture of the new girly as well as some better pictures of a few of the others that I took during water changes today.


The crowntail marble girl


The lucky lady that gets to be kept in the critter keeper


The pretty pink girl that wouldn't let me get a clear shot of her yesterday.


The girl I think looks copper, she's almost see through too!


And my new girl still in her blue water. I'll try to get a better shot tomorrow when I'm doing her water change. The container she's currently in isn't the clearest.

Those 3 stores are the ones that people always go to. I bought all my bettas at Petsmart and Petco with an exception of 1 girl who was at a LFS but in an overcrowded tank. They weren't sick, they were stressed from improper care.

Mandy Pandy, your girls look simply divine. I love Belle. :)

Well.. I'm sorry that I horrify you but those are my best options for getting fish as my local fish stores don't seem to ever carry females. These girls deserve a home just as much as any other betta. They're going to be quarantined in their own little containers for two weeks to make sure no one is sick before starting their sorority life and if any medical issues arise they will be treated as needed. My baby did her quarantine in the big tank and has been there for quite some time already. I have had no health issues with her what so ever.

Thank you bib :D
