Wink Alaura's Betta Fish Journal

I have been dying to make a journal, just to post interesting things that I see, talk about my bettas, and ask questions, all in ONE thread! I literally have so much I want to talk about that its not funny, and I want to share things so badly, but I don't want to post a new thread for everything. Well to start off, here are my beauties:

Rocket
~~~~
My first betta (well the first I have taken care of correctly), and he has been with me for almost 3 months.(Yeah he is still new) See after my two girls I had before him died, I just gave up for a bit, but I always looked at the betta food and water conditioner I had on my dresser. Then I started to want another one, but I was determined to take care of it right. So weeks later, right on the cloudy 4th of July, my mother came home with a tiny cylinder betta container, and Rocket. I was so happy, and I loved him at first sight. I put him in that cylinder not knowing that it was bad for him, but luckily I found this website, and researched as much as I could, so I could give him a happy life. He had the colors of 4th or July fireworks, so I named him Rocket. He is now in a hospital tank, with fin rot, that hopefully gets better soon. I am going to pick up some API Stresscoat soon to help his fins regenerate.

Iris
~~~
I received her and Penny shortly after I got the 2.5 for Rocket. My mom unfortunately thought that they could be with Rocket, because of what a petco employee told her, so I asked for advice, and separated them immediately, and sadly they are in quite small tanks still, and I am too ashamed to say how many gallons . But I know soon I will get one gallons for each until I get a 20 gallon for a sorority. Currently she is a pink little pig that gulps her food down faster than you can tell her to eat! I should have honestly named her ms. Piggy! She also has a chunk missing out of her fin, because of a divider mishap -_-, but it has been growing back nicely without any infection.
The first pic is her from when I first got her, and the others are her now.

Well until you can upgrade instead of buying one gallons I suggest the large petco pet keeper. It is 3 gallons and pretty inexpensive Here's the link http://m.petco.com/product/12031/Pet...6x%3D0%26y%3D0 and until then just please make during you are doing enough water changes. Also,it looks like you originally had Rocket in the Lee's Betta Keeper. I might buy that for when I do water changes.since you have owned it, do you think I should buy some of those for when I do water changes?(does it leak or have you had any problems with it?)

You could also get 2g (or more) storage bins from places like Walmart for cheap, and they work perfectly as temporary homes! I raised my baby betta in one until he was big enough to live in the divided 10g.

Thanks a bunch! Next time I go to petco I will be sure to look for the pet keepers, and I actually might have storage bins...
I haven't had any problems whatsoever with it, and I think it will be great for water changes, so feel free to use them!
