Talking Bloo's Sorority Journal!

So today I got a 10 gallon starter kit from Wal-Mart! I have the filter set up, the lights are in, and I have gravel. Tomorrow I will add water, (Fish need water, right? ), adding the gravel and decor, and then of course the fish.
Tomorrow I shall be getting 5 female fishes from Petsmart. Does Petsmart have females? I think they do...
I will post pics of the tank and of the girls when I get set up. I will take advice and tips, as long as they don't ruin my day.

OH! The tank I got was origionally marked as being $40, but when they scannesd it, it only came up as $27! Woot! :D

Welll, You are only 1 state away! x3

I have a pic of the tanks! The first one is the actual tank, and the second one is the time out box for a naughty little girl.

Question: How will I see a pecking order?

You can see the pecking order when feeding. The dominant female usually eats first! Bettas don't know how to share.....

Good luck with your sorority!

I started one about 2 weeks ago and all 6 are in time-out now! I have had 2 die I believe from stress. I have another that appeared to have a couple of nips out of her so she is being treated. I am treating all for internal bacteria just to be safe because I didn't know one was sick until I found it dead in a cave. It is kind of stressful sometimes for me. I replaced one of my females not realizing that she is absolutely huge comparatively so once I feel their time out is sufficient I will re-release them and we will see how the pecking order goes this time around. The new one may be taking the reins! I hope you get some good dosile girls!!
