I just made a sorority journal, but what the heck I'll post one for all my bettas. First time doing a journal besides the Sorority one xD.
Like Sabina, I'll start with saying how I got into Betta fish.
When I was in 5th grade, our teacher got us a blue VT male betta in a bowl with a bunch of plastic plants. I instantly fell in love with their tails hehe. I remember somewhere in January it started getting tired and sick. Which made sense because his bowl was never changed and it was freezing . He died a few days later and they flushed him down the school toilet :/. Then a week later a student bought a fish bowl and a betta and brought it into class. He was a red VT male named Captain. I fed him once hehe, he had one fake bamboo plant and they added water conditioner every day because them being the idiots they are thought it cleaned the tank for them. He survived to the end of the year and we had a raffle on who got to take him home, sadly I lost :c. Then a few years later after practically begging my parents, they let me get Milo.
Now pictures :D

So, I'm starting a Sorority in 1-3 week(s). After lots of convincing my mom. She said we can shop for the stuff next week once she gets her cast off and can walk. I went through my mom's office and I found a 10g tank, filter, and gravel:

Also some mason jars for quarantine:

I'm actually looking at a 20g instead, but if I can't get it I have le 10g. Once I get more supplies I'll post pics c:
Also, I'm reserving this female on aqua bid hopefully:

Your fish are beautiful. I look forward to hearing about your sorority.
Thank you! I just bought all the decor for it, it costed around $97 >.<.
Wow, beautiful fish and good luck with the sorority. That girl is stunning
Thank you Blue c:. I'm still anxiously waiting for the sellers of the tank to respond.
That little CT girl is BEAUTIFUL!
Subscribing! Such beautiful bettas!
Sorry for not updating, I was focusing on my other journal hehe.

So basically, I set up these three "tanks" so that I could possibly get some girls:

I was going to get three sisters, but I decided against it as I'd be in sooooooo much trouble. So I'm probably going to get one and sneak it in hehe, her tank is behind the mason jars so you wouldn't see her when you walked in the room.

Also, my ornaments and plants for the sorority got mixed up and it delivered to GEORGIA. Even thinking about it makes me pissed off because I paid one hundred dollars+shipping for it!!

Okayy the package of sorority stuff has been redirected and Petco is returning our items without any fees, not even shipping. Yay.

Sorority has to wait until Fall though, but I ordered a female anyway.

She's going to be shipped out on June 17th with Priority shipping, I divided Milo's 10g tank for her already.

Also-I decided to attempt at a Betta fish multiplayer game:

Oh wow! Very pretty betta!
Sorry for little updates-I'm in a rough patch.

Anyways, Milo got sick. He has Dropsy. I'm treating him with a little Pimafix, Epsom Salt, Metronidazole, API General Cure, and a touch of Prime and Stress Coat to ensure non stressful ammonia levels and to lower stress. It seemed to have grind the Dropsy to a halt, but nothing is getting better or worse. Also, I got a new fish named Juno.
I hope Milo gets better!
Thanks, I hope so too.

About to do a 50% on Milo&Juno's tank, a 50% on Igneel&Atlas' tank, an 100% on Magnus' tank, and an 100% on Avian's tank.
Thank you, I hope so xD he's getting less lethargic! Nothing is getting better or worse-all the same. He's partially pineconed and very bloated (although I've seen worse.).
