That blue one omg so pretty! And no she can't get anything else for her tank. The gouramis will kill everything. I believe she's overstocked anyways with that big pleco. My dad's been saying the gouramis have been chasing easy other and nipping tails but I can't tell if that's aggression or just play since there doesn't seem to be tail damage.

The women who I gave alot of guppy and ghost shrimp to said she's got up to 13 ghost shrimp now and lots of guppies plus she keeps buying more. She also said she went to our meijers and bought a rose tail Betta. She said they have a few of them. Iv always wanted one but I'm just so unlucky that no one wants to give me a ride.

Massive update:
Hello, friends! It has been long since I posted here, kicking this old thread back up.
So, for tank 1 (Sam's).
Many changes, mostly good. My current stocking list is as follows:
~One Betta
~One guppy
~Ten Exclamation point rasboras
~3 black diamond corydoras, 5 pygmy corys, and 3 dwarf salt and pepper (hasborous)
I've added water wisteria, which is growing well, water velvet, some ludwigia, I think, and best of all, two full pots of monte carlo, which I ADORE. If you don't know what that plant is, go check it out. It's a great alternative so more sensitive baby tears. I still have duckweed and guppy grass going crazy, and a few other plants I can't name. Pics soon.

Tank 2 (Luc's)
With the fine sand sub, the water wisteria in it is going absolutely nuts in crazy twisty patterns. I LOVE it. He has 5 salt and pepper corydoras and two bronze, and one endler which should be getting friends soon.

Tank 3 (New tank!!)
For Christmas I got a new 5.5 gallon, and rescued a betta that had been at petsmart fr three months+. Meet Caspar. His names means treasure. He's a pink DS VT with a super awesome personality.

He certainly earned it after waiting so long.
After moving the sole surviving endler to Luc's tank, I'm thinking about getting 4 girl gups to keep him company...

Luc has seemed to have adjusted to the presence of the endler (now renamed Valentine by my brother, XD) well. At first he flared major and gilled him before chasing the poor little guy, but after Valentine hid he lost interest. He seems okay, so I'm wondering now what to do. Do I go and try a batch of four guppy girls? I don't think they'd be too pressured with the one endler... is there even a difference between guppy girls and endlers? I could get another endler pair and two girl gups, but the tank already has seven good sized corydoras and Luc, and I don't want him to get irritated with all the fish... I have to get at least two other fish tho for Valentine because he's scared.
There's a super neat fish store I'd love to go see, but it's a good five hour drive from where I'm at and buying from the site is super expensive... plus we have a good foot of snow now and it's still dumping down (yay) so shipping would most likely go badly. @AccaliaJay , wishing for your guppies, haha. How many do you have now? A lot?

Roughly 20 or so. Since getting the female bettas I haven't seen any new fry kind of happy about that.

Best pics I have of them two. If they have some at PetSmart when I go I will probably get another to make the numbers odd. Also I have a 30 gallon lol

Im more focused on planting my 5 gallon right now. It has two Anubis Nana, 1 Marimo moss ball and 1 Java fern. I put some Java moss that's attached to one of those coconut husks in my 30 gallon tho I figured better for my ghost shrimp and fry than just my single betta and also got pictures of the unknown snail.
