Its been awhile since I posted, so I'm starting a newer thread to update some things.
First off, Blue Velvet my blue veiltail, is in a 2 gallon flower vase with a silk plant and a man made slate cave and a heater. My mom takes care of him now and they are both rather happy about it. (Well, I still do the water changes, she isn't that brave yet lol.)
Red October, my other original veiltail, now shares a divided 5 gallon with my black orchid butterfly crowntail, Cloak and Daggers. (Forgive the brown stuff all over some of my decorations or glass panes...it's just some temporary bacteria that takes hold, from a product called Nutrafin Cycle, which is awesome.)
Pumpkinhead now resides by himself in what used to be a divided critter keeper. The division didn't work out, so he got upgraded to nicer digs! He is my most active and crazy better, and he loves it! It's a little sparse decor wise, but I love the black theme against his orange color. I'm still on the lookout for more black plants or rocks...
I got a new 10 gallon, that is divided three ways, to house Metallica, and my 2 new dragons! Woot!! Finally got some with the help of my LFS! Metallica, an electric blue, metallic, crowntail, is on the left. A white dragon scale halfmoon (possibly over halfmoon), Fire and Ice, is in the middle. And Spiderman, a blue and red, dragon scale halfmoon, is on the right side. Spiderman has a couple of splits that are healing, and Fire and Ice has some ragged fins at the moment. He is a biter from transport, and despite being in a 1 gallon bowl with just gravel for over a week in salt and BetaFix, he just won't leave them alone long enough for the to heal all the way. He is still awfully cool looking though!
I also have a new female residing in my community tank of platys, glo-fish, and cories, with 2 snails. Her name is Miss Fishy Fantastico, and she gets along with everyone totally fine.
Finally we come to my sorority, or "Sistahood" as I call it. The ladies have the whole 10 gallon to themselves now. Aurora, Freckles, Rosey, and Queeny have been joined by two new female bettas, 2 small snails, and hopefully a couple of small cories soon. The new females are a pinkish/purplish cambodian named Pinky Da Pez, and a purple veiltail called Violet. Some of them still get little nicks or splits in their tails, but no one is stressed, they hang out all the time, and have plenty of places to hide if they need to. About as good as I can hope to get them. Some new java moss will provide plenty of future hiding places and bio-filtration.
