I am expecting my shipment of females tomorrow (or Wed)! I only ordered 3 breeder bettas though, so I needed to go grab a couple Petco ones for the perfect quantity. Below are some pics of where I'm at now :)
Here is my 14 gal setup. They have been on sale at Petco for cheaper than a 10 gal full setup! I don't know if they still are...
This is Petco betta #1... labeled a VT, but I think she's a CT; my iPhone didn't catch her rays very well. Her name is Pearl:
This little girl was hard to photograph... she's a VT that appeared purple in her cup, but reddish in the tank.. we'll see how her colors develop! She is still unnamed because of the color fiasco haha:
I wanted to see how these two behaved before sticking in the females arriving soon. Surprisingly they are extremely tolerant of each other!! They hang out near each other and there has been no nipping at all. I'm glad because I wanted to get some calm girls established in the tank first :)
Right now they are still exploring together! I'll update once the other girls arrive :D
