    ..... yea empty ten gallon, wonder how long... :0 Sorry about wildfire she sure was unique. I found the ten gallon tank, net, hood and lights for five dollars. Fiance rolled his eyes. i figured out what happened with the girls fins, wasnt patty wasn't filter. It was a cave I had and a plant that I didn't think was sharp enough to hurt them.

    I must have read your mind cuz I just did that. yea I have noticed. I have two (wanda and rose) who are mortal enemys. They there is margaret and Maudie who are buds. Shirley likes to go around and be friends with everybody and patty is kind of the momma (makes sure everybodys behaving. And my little weirdo of the tank is Alice. She likes to hang out in the bubbles all day. My theme for these guys are my great aunts. haha they probly would get mad but I see it as a compliment.

    This forum helps me figure out what I have done good and what I need corrected on which is nice. Oh, Charlie is doing great too. He is still skiddish but is adjusting nicely. He didn't know what to do when he tasted his first actual blood worm. He kept looking at the feed hole for more. The girls ate them like pirahna.

    I should have done that. I wasn't even thinking about it, everybody is being treated for torn fins since Patty was missing them anyways when I bought her. Everybody should have some decent healthy fins soon. She calmed down and I see more harmony. No really, the only tude I see right now is between two of the new girls. I should have introduced them little better. :( I sometimes think Patty was one of those miserables that got thrown in with another fish for fun. she was missing almost her entire dorsel, Anal fin was gone except for a sliver. She is growing her fins back already though and I think she is going to end up with a neat little tail. color has turned into an orange/pink. Patty's the boss. She is keeping everyone in order now and I saw what looked like her break up a fight between the new girls. I never knew there was such a heirarchy in a betta's world. I am still learning though. I never claim to be a pro. hehe.

    I forgot to answer your question about the release. I left the new girls in the cups for twenty minutes so the old girls could investigate them a little and the release went well. Until Patty picked at a new gal that already had a hole in her fin. I ended up baffling the filter because after Patty and a filter blast her fin is rags now. I may end up putting that on in the hospitol tank so no one nips them off til they get better. Margaret is the emotional one and was showing stress lines but she seems to be relaxing. I am watching them like a hawk for a bit to see reactions for now.

    Thanks for all the comments on my babys, er, I mean betta's. I started out with miserable little guy from walmart happily named fishy (steel blue veil tale) and after he died after 3 months because of his miserable conditions I have been hooked on them. He was picked up in nasty water (of course) and I think what got him was his stiff fin. I could never get him healed from that. He also had gill issues. But he had a nice three months remaining. My second boy was red and I have had him for 6 months or so and after that they friggin exploded.
