I went to the only place that sells female bettas in the area just to get some filter media and I ended up looking at the fish and seeing if they had any female bettas that were in good conditiion. I found one that is in great condidition, her little cup is clean and she doesn't have any signs of fin rot. She must be one of the new shipment. Anyways, long story short, I bought her and am putting her in the big 36 at the moment. I am so happy I found love again.

Congratulations to you Tom. We do know that you love the little ones and especially the little girls. I am so glad you found a little one to give a good home to. Let us see pictures when you get her settled will you?

Also when you name her, be sure to let us know so we can welcome her properly.

I am happy for the both of you.

MTS is hitting me hard today.. I got the little 2.5 gallon bowfront for our new h/q tank to replace the one we had to toss after the last betta rescue so that we can get some otos for our bettas, then start back to rescuing them.. and got a call from my mom who found a hex tank for $5 at a yard sale so she'll get that to me.. i was so tempted at petco today to take a few sad female bettas home when i was there checking on the otos. Made me think of your new betta girl and how nice it would be to bring another one home.. or 2.. or 3..

I tried to get some pics yesterday but no luck what so ever. She is just to fast to take a pic of. One second she is still and I get the camera ready and next she is on the other side of the tank and I just wasted some of my battery power. So if you guys/gals can think of a name that would suit her, that would be great. One that makes her sound fast.

Her main body is deep blue/purple and her fins are red lined with black. She looks really beautifuland easy to spot up against my substrate.

I found that the best way to photograph fast fish is to use "Continuous mode" on the camera. I don't know if your camera has that on it, but it takes photo after photo as long as you hold down the shutter button. She sounds beautiful. I have been looking at female bettas all weekend. Wal-Mart got in some Crowntail Females. There was one I really wanted to bring home, but I didn't have room for Lila as it was, so I had to leave her at the store. Maybe I can get another tank for the office if she is still there.
