xDDD Yes, If I could pick up a couple heaters I could likely get a couple more bettas even My goodness, If Only I knew what I was getting into when I bought Sasuke xDDDD

Yeah, I hope so....most of the girls they have now are much bigger then mine, another reason I'd be worried about getting one.

Ahh, so making the 29 more like a Sorority community? It was a little much for Zatara? xD lol, I bet hes enjoying his time with the girls though. lol, Bandit stealing the food? How priceless! What a perfect name for her then xD

Sasuke is very pleased with his new home , I tried to put Max in the other side but Max hated it....so I put him back in his bowl and he was all happy xD Odd little critter....

lol, Well shes pretty much my dog.....my responsibility xD So, my job to take her out at night. Though dad has to do it now of course because I can't walk to well with my torn knees Its okay though, I love Roary to pieces x3

Oh, and here are a few pictures of Sasuke and the 10!

Awww he's a cutie :) Yeah the 29 is going well a few more nipped fins this morning, I think the neons got curious. haha well now I have room for more females :) Silly me!

I almost bought a male at walmart yesterday but my mom wouldn't let me. his gills weren't even moving, I had to move the cup to see if he was alive :( I still wish I could go back and save him!


Zatara is settling in. I feel back I moved him twice in two days. But he's doing well. I want to breed him once my 10 gallon is free, which probably won't be until January. I think I'll ask for the 20 gallon for my birthday instead of Christmas.

Yay! More females xDDD I may need to snag another female here pretty quick, Nami and Phoenix are getting their fins ripped a little more then I'd like....still active and eating, but I probably should pick up another....

Awww, yeah, I know the feeling. When my mom went to get Max, he was only one of two that looks heathy :/ I wanted to rescue one or two, but didn't have the room for it right then )-:

Glad to know hes doing well! Haha, my friend wants me to breed Sasuke and Nami(inside joke)....dunno, maybe sometime in the future. I wonder how much my LPS would give me for the babys I didn't want to keep....
Hmm....is your birthday before or after Christmas? xD

Birthday Jan. 25 :( haha kind of stinks, I get everything I want for Christmas then I'm like what else could I possibly want for my birthday? Haha So I'll be looking forward to that!

My mom is on the "no more bettas" rant. I keep begging her to take me to petsmart. I've been about 4 times in the last 2 weeks looking for new shipments. But tomorrow is my last day of summer so I'm going to try and guilt trip her haha

Yeah sounds like anther girl would help spread out the aggression. And maybe more options for my neons haha. I really like them in a bigger tank, they are more active and curious, a lot of fun to watch. So more girls in my future tomorrow? I sure hope so :) And I get paid tomorrow for dog sitting!! YAY

Man neither of my LFS do store credit ugh. So I guess an ad in the newspaper would be my best bet for money for the bettas. Maybe then I could give out a care sheet of how they should be kept.

Hehe I stuck my 1 gallon critter keeper upstairs where it's warmer and hid it from my mom. She'll probably find it tonight but at least it's ready for a male :) Just in case. I can spilt my 10 gallon that Zatara is in, but I don't have anymore dividers and won't have enough money till after I get paid... so a temporary home. I keep telling myself I'll only buy females for my sorority unless there is a really sick male that I could save. Let's see how long that lasts!

xDDDD Ever get Christmas/Birthday presents?
Yeah, and you could ask for everything else you needed for Christmas and then have everything ready and set when the 20 comes

xDDD My moms like that too, but my dad supports my fish hobby so that helps and she has Max now....I think when I get his 5 gallon and set it up in her room she'll fall in love with him and be happy. xD
I'd love to breed Max, Double Tails are really expensive here....if I could only find the right female.....maybe I could make a little money, my parents would be happy with that xD

Haha, my girls are all nuts xD They were starring at the bloodworms last night like 'What IS that?' I got Mira to eat them though, and then the other girls started eating them. Its a common problem I run into with the fish I get form my LPS, they have absolutely no clue that there are other foods besides flakes....my Honey Gourami still won't eat anything but flake, she spits out bloodworms and brine shrimp!

Yeah, thats sounds like a plan...I might do that instead of giving them to my LPS, may get more money and you can be sure that you inform the people how to properly care for them

lol! Yeah, I had to drag myself away from the Bettas at Petco yesterday(our trip to see the orthodontist an hour away takes us by a Petco)...lucky they didn't have many, all VTs, all males, and none that really popped out at me.
Sasuke, meanwhile, has figured away around the divider and has been hopping sides for a while. I'll have to fix that before someone else goes in there, but hes having fun
And I may be getting another tank from the neighbors, no clue what size but I'm guessing 10-18 gallons I'm excited, I can use it as a breeding tank!

And we're getting another puppy xDDD One of Roarys sisters.

Wow you've got a lot going on! I planning on breeding Merlin with one of the girls for a little "practice" before I breed Zatara. some sad news though I bought a male who obviously had swim bladder issues at petsmart and I was hoping I could give him a better home. So I had him the in spilt 10 with Zatara. Zatara got over on his side and the little turd (who always just looked pitiful, floating at the top) decided to take two HUGE chunks out of Zatara's tail! I was ticked! I moved him to his own 1 gallon. But yesterday when I got home from school he had died. :( I guess I'm okay with it, I know he was sick, and I wasn't too attached. Plus I can take him back and get a replacement. I think I may just get a female or two instead, since I need my 10 gallon for breeding, which would be pretty difficult with it in 5 gallon sections. So that's new in the betta saga. so Merlin is in the 10 gallon and I am awaiting a bubblenest :) Sinbad and Zatara are in the 5 split and I found Zatara on the wrong side AGAIN! Gosh Merlin never got over! But it was weird they were both just next to each other on the top, no fighting! haha it was really strange but I need to attempt to betta proof the divider either way!

Yeah Max would have some pretty baby bettas! I've actually never seen a double tail here :( Just veils and crowntails. Haha none of my bettas will eat bloodworms or brine shrimp either... So I'm like well how am I supposed to condition them for breeding?

Lucky you! Another tank :) I wish! And another puppy? I'm quite jealous!

So today we went to Petsmart and returned the male. And I came home with a CROWNTAIL FEMALE!!! :) So happy, first one I've ever seen at petsmart. She is going to be added to my sorority and will probably be my female for breeding!! I named her Skye. Here are some really bad pictures of her off my phone, I'll get some better ones up soon! :)

sorry those didn't work... hmmm I'll figure something out!
