View Full Version : Saved a female betta this weekend...

from those little tiny cups at petco. We were in there shopping around, and decided to get one to replace the one we lost a few months ago. She look mighty happy going from a tiny cup to a huge (to her) 55 gallon. He color is dull but she is happy, but I think after a few weeks of feeding her NLS it will brighten right back up. So far this is the best picture I could get

Good for you. She actually looks like she'll be very pretty.

I'm very fond of the female bettas...they actually colour up beautifully when they mature...

Thank you, I've been fond of them too. We had one a few months ago who died of dropsy (we had her close to 6 months). I thing her colors will show in a few weeks once she eats NLS. I just fed the tank now and she loves it and she is fitting right in.

She looks great. To me it looks more like a short fine male one though?

I am more than positive she he is more happy in a larger tank.

She looks alot like the two I have in my community tank. I love the females, they have such personalities. I always have to look at them whenever I go into PetCo.
