My mother is the bestest !!!

OK, as I couldn't go shopping with my mother today I gave her a list of everything I needed for Aden, she came home about an hour ago with everything I'd asked for plus 4 new plants and 2 NEW FEMALE BETTAS!!! I could not believe it. So now they are happily floating in my 12 gall whilst Aden's new home is heating up, he isn't very happy though trying everything in his power to get into that bag, flaring his fins and gills like I have never seen him do, actually this is the first time I have seen him do it so I guess no breeding him with those two lovely ladies. Hah

I'll try to get pics up later because I'm not actually sure what they are, they could HMPK but I'm more than likely wrong. lol

I dont need to read it to know that your referring to the fact that its not a good idea to keep less than four females together, this is exactly what I said to my mother when she brought them home but I have been keeping a close eye on them and they seem to be getting along fine considering they were taking from 2 separate tanks at the store. Initially she was bringing me 4 different ones but the two she chose from the tank, the sales guy saw a white spot so he couldnt sell it to her but things could change, I know. I am worried about this but I do have a few bushy plants and hiding places for them to go until I can get two more hopefully tomorrow.

I seem to be coming across as rude but I honestly dont mean to be, so I apologise if you think that.

Oh no your not rude.. hope I didn't come off like that either.

just keep an EXTREMELY close eye on them 'til you get more, or even separate them. Might be worth it to separate them. Better safe then sorry. ;)

Oh, and we need pics! :D hehe

No you didnt sound rude you were just trying to help a newbie =) I've become so obsessed by bettas though that I am constantly researching, not wanting to do anything wrong but you can never know too much lol.

I did initially want to separate them but they were in the bag together and were fine but I am a little bit paranoid now that you have brought it up lol. Theres nothing I can do to separate them now I have no spare tanks.
