Indeed....
Anyway, so, replace a tank? xD Anyway you could keep the 10 up and....get two more bettas? That'd be sweet...

Haha that's true. Actually yesterday I bought another betta! I think I'm done for a while because I'm out of money and room for tanks! Haha So I have to get rid of my pair of Kribensis because they are terrorizing my poor cories! They chase and bite them all around the tank. So I had to move them to my 10 sorority until we can call our petstore and pray that they will take them back. So once they are rehomed I will put my cories and my new male betta in my 29 gallon!! He is gorgegous. I named him Bowen. He is a crowntail, his fins are dark red and his body is blackish. He's really cool! :) For the 20 gal I'm thinking about a gourami community but I don't think a 20 gives me much leeway, what do you think?

lol, We just got home with my moms 'betta setup' and a new betta for her The 'setup' is just a bowl, but its kinda a neat
Here he is, not the best picture, the bowl is weird. She named him Max x3

I must see pictures of your new guy! He sounds beautiful! xD
Ugh, that stinks about the Kribs D: They were gorgeous. Hopefully you can get some store credit though.
Hmm....you could do Honeys in a 20....or, like, two Honeys and a Powder Blue(they're usually sold like the Dwarfs, only males so two might not be wise....)
Oh! Or Sparkling Gourami! You could put quite a few on a 20. I absolutely love my Sparklers, that awesome Gourami personality in a fish that gets no bigger(if not smaller)then a male guppy!

Ah Max is cute, a double tail is he? Do you guys have a heater in the bowl? I think it's kind of weird upstairs we don't need a heater but downstairs we have to. And since my room is downstairs it means no fish bowls :( I would of liked to have one or two on hand for rescues, but... heaters mean more money :(

Yeah I think Bowen is awesome looking, I want to breed him with one of my girls! He gets to move in tomorrow after the kribs are gone, and the catfish get to go back home too :) I will still keep one pair in our 50 gallon since they don't really seem to be bothering anyone. I hope I will get store credit! The store we bought them from doesn't do it, but hopefully our other local store will. I'm making my dad call so I need to make sure he'll ask that. haha :)

Man I love sparking gouramis but none of my stinking stores sell them! :( I've only ever seen them in my encyclopedia of fish haha!! Man so many options not enough tanks! haha

Yup, Double Tail Nah, the bowl doesn't have a heater.....don't even think its a gallon Oo; I'll be looking into some smaller heaters when we head out tomorrow though....maybe theres some mini one I can get xD My mom is started to get into it too, I think she really likes Max.
If we can't find a heater, he may end up with his own little tank if I play it right

Bad news though, Jinx has been missing for several days....moved a few things around today during a PWC, no sign of her. Definitely hasn't jumped out the back. I suppose I have to assume that she died somehow and was eaten )-: So its just Nami, Tetsuya, Phoenix, and Mira for now...
Though everyone else is doing good, Mira is recovering phenomenally well and Phoenixs fins started to grow back...I think she may be a CT Got some good pictures today I think, I'll post them tomorrow sometime probably.

I can't wait to see pictures of him! He sounds like the dream betta of a friend of mine I bet they'd be pretty Fry x3 Yeah, Store credit is great. I was actually surprised my local place did it, so you never know!

I actually didn't think anyone around here sold sparklers either....yet, to my surprise I found them lurking in a tank of tetras They put fish in the weirdest places....so they may be hidden somewhere

Haha I'm sure Max would love his own little aquarium, I didn't mean to tell you a heater was needed, I was just curious because of the temperature change from one floor to another in our house. :)

Sorry to hear about Jinx :( That is kind of weird how they just disappear sometimes. I had 3 dwarf pencilfish in a community with killifish and I'm pretty sure they disappeared down the killifish's throat! Haha we had to put the killies with some zebras and I looked into the tank one day and saw some tail fins sticking out of the killies mouth!! So I'm pretty sure my pencilfish suffered the same fate. At least the other girls are still getting along. Bandit is still the lowest on the totem pole, they aren't really letting her eat but she's starting to come around and steal some food :)

Yay pictures :) I'll get some up today too after we get back from taking the Kribs. I really hope my LFS will have some more hachetfish or sparklers, I would love to spice up my tank a little more! I think Bowen (I'm thinking I should rename him Zatara, what do you think?) will be quite happy in the 29 gallon with 3 cories, 10 neons, and 2 hatchetfish. He will be the king of the tank!! :)

lol, its okay, I'd hoped to get him a little heater anyway....it was something I'd been thinking about before xD But, of course, I forgot to look when I went in today. The upstairs is usually warmer though anyway....though my parents room can get cold. Dunno, I'm working on getting my mom to get him a little five gallon thing xD

Yeah, I was really fond of Jinx, loved her coloring I suppose I'll blame my Dwarf Pleco....I think hes the biggest thing in there at around 2.5"-3". The other females they have at my LPS now don't really catch my eye....but I found out when they get in shipments, so I'll look again when I got to get my second male betta
Yeah, Tetsuya is definitely top dog....though it looks almost as if Nami and Phoenix are about even. Everyone has a few little nips and bites, but they're all getting food just fine and seem active and heathy so I suppose I shouldn't worry too much.

Oh my gosh! Zatara is gorgeous! Just like you described! Exactly like my friends dream betta, she'd be so jealous xDDD
And the adorable girls xD Aww, Bandit is cute! I love her color x3

Anyway, got a ten gallon today....not the one I was planning on, but it was cheaper and had more stuff with it Filling it up right now, going to stick a sponge from another filter in there and Sasuke has a new home for him and a 'friend'! xD
Sorry, I haven't sized down or uploaded any pictures yet....a bit of a hectic day xD Last night at 2 am I was taking the puppy out, heard something in the bushes, grabbed the puppy to run back to the house, and tripped on the driveway and tore up my knees and hand. Didn't get much sleep last night......so a little unmotivated to go through a bunch of pictures xD ^^;
Puppy is okay though, and not the least bit fazed

Yeah shame on me I have a 1 gallon sort of critter keeper set up just in case i find a rescue betta at walmart tomorrow but I need a heater and I'm not sure I can beg my mom for anymore fish stuff, but we'll see :)

Glad to hear all is still going well with the girls ;) I'm sure you'll find another few good additions to your sorority with the coming shipments!

Thanks for the compliments! I really like Zatara, and he seems to be somewhat overwhelmed at all 29 gallons he gets to swim in :) Bandit is pretty cute too and she is starting to live up to her name by stealing the other girl's food haha she's a character. I just couldn't get a great picture of her, she swims too fast!

So it's the 10 gallon vs. the 12? That's okay, cheaper is sometimes better :) Aw I just looked over and my cories are all being really active and happy! They are so estatic they don't have the kribs chasing after them! Im sure Sasuke will be very happy with his upgrade!

No worries about the pics! Glad to hear everyone's ok except for a few cuts and bruises. Haha I would have made the parents let out the poochie at 2 am!! Yeah I just had to put my neighboor's dog to bed across the street and hi-tailed it back home! Probably wasn't such a good idea to watch a scary movie before going over in the dark!
