I got mine from Ebay from Amy: http://www.ebay.com/itm/380449815175...84.m1439.l2649

The girls really love it. I'm pretty sure it helped save my little Oceania's life too. I have the copper girl floating in the tank still in a cup. I just change the water twice a day with the water I have the dissolved salt in. I will re introduce her with the other two new girls once they're ready. Right now they're still just babies and Oceania is still gaining her strength and getting weaned on pellets. The new plants will add a lot more foliage and hiding spots and I'm most likely going to rearrange everything in the tank at the same time too.

I'll get some. Where did you order your plants from? I want some more water sprite, but can't find any in LFS in the area.

I put a breeder's net in my aquarium today to use for time-out (just posted a picture in my thread). The female that I believe was responsible for the copper girl is now picking on Queen B. Those fancy pectorals are irresistible.

I've used aquariumplants.com for a while but wasn't completely happy with them the last time I got an order (their hornwort was weird and comes with a lot of snails). I used plantedaquariumscentral.com this time and got some really beautiful plants that I HOPE I can keep alive lol. I got:

CABOMBA PALAEFORMIS (2 bunches)
ROTALA WALLICHII (2 bunches)
Brazilian Pennywort (3 bunches)
MICRO SWORD (2 orders which is apprx. 8" of area)
Red 'Rubin' Sword Plant (1 plant)

Sounds like a great list of plants! I'll check out the website. I think I will eventually get a 20 gal. long and try to discipline myself not to fill it up with a bunch more females. There are 8 girls in this 10 gallon and I personally think it's about 2 too many.

She's hungry all the time but still won't eat pellets. She's zipping around the tank right now looking for more food, hehe! I think she's gonna be just fine. This is her just a few hours ago:

8 isn't too many as long as theres enough plants. 20 gallon would be awesome and you could add some cory cats or snails in there. I love my cory cats, they're adorable! They help stir the bottom of the tank up too so things don't build up in one area.

It might be a little too much bioload for the 10 gallon with 8 female bettas. I would hit up aqadvisor.com. Just convice yourself to get the 20 gallon maybe? hehe

Me too. I'm surprised she did. I thought she maybe had some sort of illness but I'm pretty sure she was just starving.
