I got a female!! At last! :3 (( warning to dial up users, pic heavy ))

So i went to petsmart, because i thought they were still having a sale on female bettas... Well the sale was over, but all of their females were in one tank, maybe fifteen or so in a ten gallon section of bare tank with a single plant. There were also several Chinese algae eaters in the tank as well, and the bettas were all fighting, there was one already dead and one more that wont last the day most likely. This girl had been bullied to the bottom of the tank and was hiding in the corner as good as she could. I felt so bad for her, and i had to bring her home. Poor dear!


Does anyone have name suggestions?








Isnt she a cutie?!




Also, here are some updated pics of the boys, because i dont want to make another thread.






And the super rare, Betta Rattus





Also, ill ask this in housing as well, but i got these rocks from the river, how should i clean them?

Oh my! She's gorgeous! And I love the rats too^ ^

I think you should just boil some water, when it starts to bubble, turn down the heat or completely off and drop them in until the water cools. You'll be set! Hot water kills nearly everything!

Poor little girlie fish. I think you should name her Destiny, because she's a Survivor, she's not gonna give up. LOL! 90's Destiny's Child song reference.

Oops, that posted before I was done, lol...

Your betta girl is lovely, and lucky that you found her. I'd call her Lucky. :)

So many pretty names!! Thank you all so much, it is so hard to choose! XD I am terrible at naming girl things... A friend of mine named my rats actually... >.> I just loved the names.

Also thanks for all the lovely comments! She has settled in well to my little group, i may have to get a heater for her little tank though. She is so teeny! Half the size of Thaddeus, if even that... Ill try and get a shot of them next to eachother tomorrow. Its amazing she can eat the pellets, but she is smart, she lets them soak for a while then bites off pieces when they are soft. :3

Cal you all tell from the photos if she is CT or VT? and do you think she will color up any more than that?
