My New Female Betta...

I feel in love with her at Petsmart. LOL I actually left the store went back to work and then left work again and went back and got her and her 5 gallon tank. Good thing I am my own boss. LOL
First is her tank, I took the filter out of my 10 gallon and but it in this one for the bacteria and am also checking water and will do water changes as needed. I am thinking about going with a dark back ground to make her color stand out more. What do you guys think.

And here she is I am looking for name suggestions:

Ahhh, she's pretty! I'm a big fan of black backgrounds and I think it would make her color *pop*.
PS. Is this the tank you're considering the pygmys for? If so, the gravel looks a little too large for pygmys to be comfortable on. Just a consideration to think about...

Yes this is the one I am think about for the pygmys. I had not thought about the gravel being ruff on the pygmys. I think I will just try the shrimp. If she eats them than at least it will be a nice meal for her and if she doesn't then I will have shrimp. LOL

LOL I colored 2 pieces of copier paper with a black marker and put them on the back to see if I would like it and I must say it really does bring her color out. I was going to go get a back ground and a heater today but I let my mom borrow my car so it will be tomorrow. It stays about 78 in here so she will be fine until then. Here is a picture with the back ground I made. I think it will look even better with a real back ground.

WOw. To say that background makes her colors pop is an understatement. Beautiful fish.

Thank you again. How long do you think I should wait to add the shrimp? Should I quarintine them also? And how many do you think would be ok to add?

Unless you already have inverts in the tank you intend to introduce the new shrimp to (and you don't) it's not *essential* to quarantine them. Shrimp-fish disease transmission is pretty rare so I wouldn't be concerned.

Thanks you guys. How many shrimp do you think I could add? Shrimp like driftwood don't they? If she does not eat them maybe I could get a small piece for them.
