So I went to Petco today to find a female betta that is approximately the same size as Axie is to be able to put her in a sorority. I know all the differing opinions on a female betta sorority, but I would like to try to give it a go. Was only going to get a female. So I get there, go over to the betta cups... and..... I about went supernova angry at the store associates. A majority of the bettas are in water so cloudy that you can barely see the fish. Alot of them have fin rot and ammonia poisoning. I was fuming and in tears and just about shouting expletives. I grabbed my favorite store associate who is a cashier and she was shocked at the condition of them. She promised she would change the ones with the worst water, and that she would make sure the fish specialist would change the rest tomorrow. He is leaving in about a week as well, and I'm wondering if I should go to the open interview for his position. What was worst of all, was some <expletive deleted> stacked the overflow betta cups right on top of each other effectively making their air supply limited. My cashier friend was cursing who ever did it under her breath. I was in tears after I finished telling this to my BF and was trying to figure out how I could get them all and he told me You can't save them all Hasselhoff. He's right but darn, i wish I could. So I brought home another boy, and another 3 way breeder to put him in temporarily. It just about broke my heart. Anyway, here are the 2 new additions, in their cups. This is the male, he is a doubletail and a beautiful gold color He had a nice brown slime on the bottom of his cup. I also treated him preventatively with about a quarter dose of Pima and Melafix. This is the girl. She had alot of particulate in her water, and it smelled Horrid. She was a light, almost white lavender, at the store. She has since darkened up alot since being put into the tank an hour ago. She also got preventative treatment with a quarter dose of Pima and Melafix. Both of these bettas are uber skinny, if you can't tell from the picture. I observed the new girl with Axie for a good thirty minutes. Axie doesn't flare, just rushes (doesn't even nip) at her and then backs off immediately. They will be under intense observation for the next couple of weeks, and Axie and the new girl will be moved to the 20 gallon if they do well to be introduced to Kiara. Kiara is already in the 20 Gallon community and is doing well. She is a bit bigger then these two, but is extremely shy. I think they will do well. Eiros will stay in the divided 10 with Glaedr taking Axie's spot. The golden boy will be released into the 29 if he shows no aggression. OR Glaedr may switch with golden boy if he does show aggression. I have a plan and a back up plan incase this doesn't work. Hoping the 20g L will be set up in the near future, so I don't have to worry about my boys. Going to go watch the girls for now.
