Remember me from this post? http://www.bettafish.com/showthread....534#post236534
Well, it didn't take long before I had to have more! We went out and found a 10 gal over the weekend and went back to Petco and bought the 2 saddest looking females in dirty water, along with 2 corys & a male with not so great fins who was also in dirty water and brought them all home.
I stupidly didn't look into setting up a new tank so I didn't allow it to cycle before putting all of them in except the male of course. I'm keeping a watchful eye on the ammonia & nitrate levels, so far so good. The best news is the females all get along great. Freckles chased them at first but no nipping. I have the male in the 1/2 gal waiting out the tank cycle before I put him on the seperated side of the 10 gal.
Freckles in the front, the two new females are red & orange(in the back)
Goldie, can't wait to move in!
A Cory, they love the castle!
But wait, that's not all!
Labor day we bought a new mattress, the store had a male betta in a small glass cube on the desk. Today, I took them rocks, water conditioner and a huge vase to put him in! Another one saved!
