Oh! I redid the girls and I am only seeing stress lines on one so far. They seem much happier with their new setup, I will post pics of the re-re-release soon. Also, one of my girls had that double red line on each gill when I got her and its going away already since the release. Sad about my tetra's in my other tank though. I think I have a tetra muncher and I can't figure out who it is.
Just the other day I had to resist a pitiful little guy with no fins at jacks aquarium. The store worker says "we take good care of our bettas" I'm thinking.... exhibit A is on your shelf dude. They take great care of all their other fish. I will never understand why bettas are neglected so much.
I will eventually get better quality plant life going. I am contimplating real plants soon but for now its the cheap fabrics. Its so depressing when you miss little things like that but I caught it now so they will be fine. Its actually a cuter more natural looking setup. P.s. I have the betta bug now to and the bug makes me want the most pitiful.
Lol... do I hear another sorority? XD She really was, I saw another orange girl, not as orange as she was though and not the same fiery personality, at Walmart the the other day... I passed her up for a sick little CT... I have a soft spot for them :-/
One of my favorite plan decorations has a REALLY bad plant attached to it, it shredded one of my bettas fins, I have since removed it and covered the whole with a bit AQ glue... but both myself and the bettas loved the decoration so much I had to go out and buy more... and fix them XD
Good luck! Try checking out Ebay, I've gotten some REALLY good deals on silk plants from there
..... 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.
