My First Girls! (Help Identifying?)

Curse you sale at petsmart! D:

I went to petsmart to originally pick up the little black girl since I saw her about a week ago and she stole my heart c:

BUT THEN
I saw the tag telling me that female bettas were only a dollar each.

Sooooo now I have 4 new girls and the start of my sorority c:



Now first off, what started this whole fiasco.

Got a new 20g and a new 35g off craigslist FOR ONLY $20
YESSSSSS
(It was originally $15, I forgot to bring change -headdesk-)

Now introductions to the girls.
Id really appreciate help identifying the tail type, Ive only had long finned bettas before which are much easier to identify x.x



First off, the whole reason I went to petsmart!

Calling her Ophelia right now, her coloration is black body/fins. She has white highlights on her tail and a blue sheen on her body. Im thinking she'll even out to dark blue highlights when she settles in.

Little Merlot, shes purple (which my phone wouldnt catch at all D:) and pink and a tad spazzy lol.


Lastly, my little charity case :C
Name:  Lucky.jpg

She was in the same tank as Ophelia all by her lonesome with no cover, so Ophelia chewed her up pretty badly. Im surprised she was still alive. Im calling her Lucky. Shes has a gorgeous blue and red sheen, I cant wait until she grows her fins back and I can see what color she really is.



And as always, Miro-kitty ^^

It's hard to tell from the first pic but they all seem like vieltails to me.
Great deal on those tanks! I'm looking to replace my breeder tanks I sold before moving to WA... I pretty much have to start all over again with my setups :(

Sadly, Lucky passed away earlier this morning


Sad, but unsurprising, she was very torn up and looked like she had more problems than I could actually identify :C

Aww, poor little lucky. Well, she was lucky to be able to leave that bad place and go to a good home, even if it was only for a little while!

Came home today and found Ophelia covered in white fuzz, after doing some frantic research, it looks like acute columnaris.


after seeing her condition and reading about it on here, i dont think shell last the night :C







Since she was housed with Lucky, Im thinking that may have been what killed her as well :/

Ophelia passed away about an hour ago.



Luckily my last two girls were cupped by themselves and look incredibly healthy
