I could dig through for my old journal thread (probably wouldn't be at all hard to find) but I don't feel like it and I'd like to start fresh anyway. So here goes
Expect future posts to consist of many, many photos!
Meet the bettas!
Watermelon, my first betta. I got him from the newly opened LPS in May of last year. He was one of six red veiltails available and even though he was the smallest and the palest I chose him. Actually, he chose me, I think. <3
Mochi, my second betta. I bought him as a baby betta from petco. For a while I was convinced little Mochi was a girl, but I was wrong! Currently he's in a 1 gallon tank (filtered & heated, & live planted) but he'll be getting an upgrade sometime in the next couple weeks!
Poseidon, my third betta. He was not planned and I was honestly going to stop at two! Until this gorgeous guy came along, that is. When I saw him at Petco I knew I had to have him, so of course I went and set up a new tank, and I think that's when the multi-tank/mult-betta syndrome madness really began!
Blueberry, my fourth betta. He was quite stressed when I bought him from the LPS; stress stripes and tail biting
The stress stripes disappeared within a day or two and although I still catch him snacking on his fins occasionally it's not as bad as it was.

Lucky Moe, my fifth betta. I had seen him at the LPS one day when I went in for guinea pig food but I resisted the urge to buy him. I saw him there again a couple weeks later but again I walked out empty handed. Finally, after he had been there for at least a month, I bought Lucky Moe. He ended up with severe ammonia poisoning due to living in that tiny cup for so long but luckily he is on the mend now! He's in a hospital tank right now and I'm treating him with daily salt baths.
