    I went out and bought a female betta for my new 3 gallon tank. Her name is Shandi (like the KISS song, haha) and she's a crowntail. I'll post pictures, they're poor quality, but you'll get the gist of what she looks like. She's blue, red, and a little pink.

    Also joining her (but being monitored VERY closely) are 3 ghost shrimps which I have cleverly named Love Gun, Shock Me, and Black Diamond.

    If you can't tell, I'm a KISS fan. :p



    Here's those awful quality pictures...still trying to get a new camera.

    I can see her, the pics aren't so bad. She is a little tenny tiny lady. I have two of those in my household, the girls are so small they are awfully hard to resist. :)

    Thanks everyone for the comments! :)


    An update on how Shandi and her shrimp trio are going:
    She enjoys stalking the shrimp and scaring them. I've seen her take one or two nips but I think she's trying to show who's boss. No casualties so far.

    Aw, she's a cutie!
    I have a soft spot for the ladies myself. :)
    Even if she eats the shrimp...at least she'll be well fed. ;)

    Unfortunately little Black Diamond the shrimp has gone MIA. I think since he was the smallest of the 3 she decided he looked cute enough to eat. The other two are very agile and can escape Shandi fairly quickly, and they've also taken to hiding in the plants.

    Poor B.D. :(
