Well I've done the research and have a nicely cycled 20 gallon long rather heavily planted running in my den... now all it needs are some lovely ladies. So today I went to two Petcos, two Petsmarts, and two Walmarts. First was a trip to the furthest Petco with my husband. He did nothing but moan about how much they were so that was the only store he went with me to. :P
This little girl didn't want to cooperate so this is the best shot I got of her. :P
Then I dropped the husband off and went to the first Walmart which was a bust so I proceeded directly to the first Petsmart.
Then it was off to the next Petco where I picked out three more little darlings!
Two more at the next Petsmart!
And lastly I decided to go to Walmart. By this time I was getting pretty tired and I almost didn't go. Honestly I wish I had gone there first! They must have just gotten a shipment in because they had some really really beautiful girls! It was hard to choose just one as I only had room in my sorority for one more. (Going to have a total of 11 and already have my grown baby betta girl, Belle in the big tank.)
Unfortunately she wouldn't cooperate for the camera but trust me... she's awesome. Black with bright green and red on her fins... so awesome. I've always wanted a betta this color and I find her at Walmart of all places.
Here's a shot of all of them in their cups.
And now they're all in a very random assortment of containers while I wait the two weeks to make sure they're healthy.
