lol Sakura, honestly i dunno how i walked away either :P I think its the heaters, were low on money now (broken down car, need to buy winter clothes for our daughter soon, bills jeep rising while paychecks dont) and ive spent enough this year on fish and breeding so i gotta keep my priorities straight, i plan to split up the 20g to hold oldman electra and two of their babies so theyd have 5g each and share a heater/filter. My house gets cold in the winter so theyd need one. But if i got this male id either have to be crafty for another section off of the 20g for him or id need to buy another heater for the 3g oldman is in now, thats the only spare ill have left once the babies are gone >.<
I wanted to do a sorority with the girls from this spawn but im starting to wonder if ill be able, with the money issues. I just need heaters, i got tanks and filters, lol ah i wish i could run across a bit of money XD

Platies are really easy, they can be kept with bettas. Same temperature. They eat community flakes or mosquito larvae and you can feed them parboiled veggies. You could keep one or two platies in a 3g or you could keep more in a 10g. If you get a female, she'll be pregnant and drop fry for you for the next several months even if you don't get a male. The fry can be live food for the bettas. If you don't want to deal with the fry, get a male. They're easy to tell because their anal fin points back toward their tail.

Here's hoping that little guy at Wal-Mart finds a new home fast. I want to get on a plane and go buy him!

That's a good idea. There's bound to be someone in Florida near you who would want him if he's still there.

Maybe you could buy him, hide him somewhere, and then give him away with the rest of the fry? Just tell everyone he was a really fast bloomer. :D

Yuppers, that's me, planting evil/mischevious ideas in people's heads. I'm a bad influence.

Offtopic, i went back to walmart today and hes still there, still unchanged, i tipped some old water out and some fresh in but i couldnt get the poo of the bottom. Husband shook his head no but i took pics...
Heres the one i wish i could take home =[ He looks more purple and less blue in RL

and this guy was so pretty i had to snap a shot of him...

not everyday i see a yellow one there...
and i want this thing!!

though they didnt label it so i dunno what it is =/ its ugly and creepy in a cute way :P
and heres all the little guys walmart has =/

least most have cleanish water, im thinking they change the water 2 times a week from the times ive went, but the one guy i like missed out on food/water since he was hidden so now hes on the top right in front :P
