Long post ahead:
I got the female bettas! I am so excited!
Right now they're in their baggy floating in the tank. Bambi is swimming against the bag for dear life, trying to investigate her large new home. It's so cute. xD
Today my aunt suddenly told me we're going to the mall that had the petstore, and they were still there! So I got the pair and I bought them a few silk plants until I can get the real thing for them to hide in. I also got a breeding trap in case they start to bully each other.
Tomorrow is Labour Day, but Tuesday I'm heading to Petsmart to get two more girls if possible, as well as live plants and food. The petstore only had Goldfish and Tropical fish flakes!
I figure I'm safe for a day or two since they're new to their tank and probably won't eat anyway.
I wish I had a camera to show you guys, both of them are sooo adorable. ♥
One is a dull beige sort of colour with darker little speckles on her fins, which are lavender/light blue. When i saw her in the petstore, i knew right away that her name would be Bambi. If there was ever a fish that called out to me, it would be Bambi (or my old female Zoro, RIP).
The other girl is much more brightly coloured, a sort of violet sort of colour that changes to indigo when her body hits the light, and blue-ish green fins that also have speckles. I couldn't think of a name for her. I was planning on asking you guys, but my aunt suggested the name Lolita which I loved for her. But I'm still open to any suggestions you guys have.
Both of them have really dark horizontal stripes. Are those breeding stripes, or stress stripes?
Unfortunately, both seem to have nipped fins, so I may have to use the breeding trap. So far both of them aren't doing much (the water they were in feels a bit chilly), but I'll have to keep an eye on them.
When i go to Petsmart, should I get salt to treat the fins? What do you reccomend?
I AM SO EXCITED! I will have to beg my aunt and uncle to let me use their camera later, lol.
